Check the paragraph style applied on the text....
You have the "Paragraph rule" , "Rule on" is checked which is causing this to happen,
Select the text and then uncheck "rule on"
This looks like a Rule Below so don't forget to check that in the dropdown in the Paragraph Rules dialog. It can be a bit confusing in there.
I dont think its Rule below , It should be "Rule Above" as the last table row doesn't have the Dark line below the text , Any specific reason you said its Rule Below....
What difference does it make? Just check both ...
When we use "Rule Above" then the option "Keep in frame" is checked by default however wit h"Rule Below" that option is greyed out.
If we keep "Keep in frame " check then your rule line will not go beyond the frame and hence will your text will move on increasing the offset value , so we have uncheck the "keep in frame" option to move the rule line beyond the frame or table.
Which doesn't seem to happen in this case and that could be reason "Peter" said it is "Rule Below" ....
At Intial point I thought the other way round hence said "Rule Above" but I think I got the Reason why Peter Said "Rule Below"
Any specific reason you said its Rule Below....
Probably because I was looking too fast. You may be correct. I've never tried using paragraph rules in a table, so I don't know if they will move outside a cell the way they will move outside a text frame.
In any case, the larger point is to make sure you check both types of rule any time paragraph rules are an issue. Many users are not aware that they need to do that.
Yes...You are right again but I though I missed something as usual which you figured out and specifically wrote "Rule below" , just wanted to know that......
