Default How to make the line above a footnote align to left margin?

The line above the footnote is indented beyond the left margin and I can't
figure out how to realign that line with the margin. How do you move the line
above the footnote?

Default How to make the line above a footnote align to left margin?

Most likely you've added a first-line indent to Normal style, and the
separator has inherited it. Switch to Normal view, and View | Footnotes. In
the dropdown on the toolbar, choose Footnote Separator. Right-click on the
separator, select Paragraph, and remove the indent.

What was "Normal" view is now Draft view.

In Draft view, in the References ribbon tab, click Insert Footnote. In the
footnote pane title bar, click the dropdown arrow to Footnote Separator.

In Word 2007, normal view is called 'draft'. To edit the footnote separator
(or anything else to do with how footnotes are displayed), select draft view
(icons bottom right of the status bar) and then select 'Show Notes' from the
References Tab. This will display a split screen. At the top of the bottom
screen there is a dropdown Window 'Footnotes'. Select the footnote separator
from the drop down list and edit it as you wish. Reset will put the default
separator back.

As suggested in previous messages in this thread, your footnote separator
probably has acquired undesirable formatting. Switch to Normal view (Word
97-2003) or to Draft view (in Word 2007). Show the footnote pane (in Word 2003,
click View | Footnotes; in Word 2007, click References tab | Show Notes). In the
list box, choose "Footnote Separator." Use the Paragraph dialog box to clear any
left or first line indent. When you are done, close the pane and return to your
favorite view.
