    Does you mean just a shape line?
    Insert>shape>line
    Size it the way you want and hold shift to keep it straight.

    Ok, initially I looked at that but thought that was not it. Thanks.

    Line across page

    I use the "line across page" mostly to separate the header or footer text from the rest of the document. Although I am new to Pages, this seems to work:

    1. Underline all the text in the last line of the header
    2. Then, with your cursor just after the last character, press <TAB>

    That should extend your underline all the way across the page. For the footer, I put a blank line with a small font as the first footer line then press the underline button and <TAB>. This puts a line all the way across the top of my footer section.

    I am sure there are other (better?) ways of doing this, but I am new to Pages. I wish there were something akin to Microsoft's "border" button to put lines above/below/left/right of my text paragraphs...
