Page Spanning Line in Compile

I apologize if this is in the wrong forum – I can’t remember now if the option to insert a page-spanning or centered line was available in the non-beta version. I’ve done some googling, read a lot of articles and posts, but I can’t quite find what I’m looking for.

I’m trying to set up a specific type of style in my compiled ebook – each of my chapters has a intro section that I want separated from the bulk of the rest with a line.

  • I tried to insert a page-spanning line but that shows up as a dash (-) in compile.
  • I tried to create a unique section type and make it a custom separator, but no matter what I do, I can’t seem to get it to show up.

Right now, the only option is to insert a line like this – _______________________________________ into the actual text.

I’m fine with that, but I was wondering if there was an easier way – ideally, I’d love to be able to set it as a formatting option and only worry about it during post-production, not the writing or editing stages.

Again, apologies if this doesn’t belong in the beta forum.
