The Paragraph Rules command is not available unless a text object is in Edit mode.
Paragraph Rules Options
Rule Above and Rule Below
Draws rules above or below selected paragraphs. Both can be selected. The size, placement, and attributes of rules are based on the settings in the dialog box. If a paragraph has rules and you clear the checkboxes, Canvas X Draw removes the rules.
Use the menu to choose an option for the length of paragraph rules.
Sets the rule length based on the values in the From Left and From Right boxes. These values set the distances from the ends of the rules to the right and left borders of the text object (independent of paragraph indents).
Makes the rule length equal to the first line (for rules above) or last line (for rules below) of a paragraph. The From Left and From Right options are not available when the Text option is selected.
Enter a value in points to space the rule away from the adjacent line of text. The position for rules above is measured from the descenders of the last line of the previous paragraph. For rules below, the position is measured from the descenders of the last line of the current paragraph. You can enter a minimum value of -10 points to move the rule closer to the text. You can enter a maximum value of 72 points to move the rule away from the text.
Select a stroke for the rule from the Pen pop-up palette. You can select a solid pen, neon, or parallel stroke.
To apply a dash to the rule, select a dash style from the Dash pop-up palette.
Select a color for the rule from the Color pop-up palette.
