Hi,
I was wondering whether, in my custom compile setting, there is a way to draw a separator line between the header and the main text. Any idea? Many thanks,
Alfredo

Yes, you can do this by adding an underline to the whole header, which can be done by placing underscores around it. So, place an "_" at the start of the left part of the header, and another at the end of the right part of the header. (Note that for print and PDF, this will only work properly if there is text in both the left and right parts of the header, because the OS X text system won't show underlines beneath tab characters that aren't surrounded by text. It will work fine for RTF and Word export, though, and will work fine for PDF and print if there is text in both the left and right parts of the header.)

All the best,
Keith
