If you want to you can export to PDF and select spreads which will
combine the two pages into one.
I did that by selecting under properties 'Two-up and cover page. Is that
what you mean. The dotted line between the pages shows up, or is
there another way?
No. That's nothing but a view setting in Acrobat and there is no way to
remove it. If you want to be able to view spreads as single pages in
Acrobat you'll need to choose the spreads option when exporting.
Give it a try and see.
OMG!! You are a genius. Thank you so much, all I had to do was to change
pages to spreads and it was perfect.

Spreads are not very user friendly, however, for the visually impaired (nor are multiple columns on a single page). Keep that in mind if you are designing for screen.
I am creating for a digital magazine, and they all only do a 2 page view which makes the text too small to read for the most part. When I import it for the digital it looks fine but I will also have a choice to be able to download the PDF which had the lines in it. I made it with just 1 column per page which comes out in the spread looking like 2 columns so it looks nice and so easy to read, I really like the digital so now readers will have the choice for digital or PDF and be able to read them easily.
Thanks very much for your help. Are you a designer?
If you were asking if I'm a designer, rather than asking Bob, the answer is yes, among other things.
Two-column text, no matter how it is created, is NEVER user friendly on screen as it requires both up and down and left right scrolling to read when you zoom in to a comfortable size for many users with poor eyesight and small screens. If you want to see waht I mean, try reading the instructions PDF for any tax form at the IRS site.
