In Microsoft Word 98 Macintosh Edition, it is possible to add a separator line to an existing menu. This article describes how to accomplish this.


To add a separator line to a menu, follow these steps:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Customize.
  2. Click the Toolbars tab, and then click to select the Menu Bar check box.

A menu bar will appear above your other toolbars.

  1. On the new menu bar, click the menu to which you want add a separator.
  2. Press the CONTROL key and click the command over which you want to have a separator.
  3. On the shortcut menu that appears, click Begin A Group.

A separator line will appear above the menu command that you selected in steps 4.

To remove a separator, follow the steps 1-4, except in step 5, click Begin A Group (the check mark next to the command should disappear).

For example, if you press CONTROL and click Columns on the Format menu, you will see that Begin A Group is selected. Selecting it removes the check mark from the item and removes the separator.
