Hi All,

This is totally weird.

I have a document that I am creating. I have copied text from a legacy
document into the new document.

A line was drawn next to the text, and was copied into my new document.

I cannot delete the line. Nothing I do works. I've tried:

- select, right-click > Cut
- select and press Delete
- select and click Ctrl + X

Now for the REAL Weirdness:

If I go into the legacy document, I can delete the line! So I will...

But it would be nice to know what is going on here!
