In WordPerfect for DOS 5.x/6.x, find this under Setup/Shift+F1, 3/Environment, 1/Backup Options, Original Document Backup. In WordPerfect for Windows 8.0, use Tools, Settings (in versions 7.0 and 6.x use Edit, Preferences), then select File, and Original Document Backup.
Make sure your cursor is above the text you'll need this for, then use this command: In WordPerfect for Windows 8, go to the Font menu to select Underline, Text and Tabs; in 6.x and 7.0 versions, use the Font menu to select Tabs in the "Underline Options" section; in 5.x versions, use Layout, Typesetting, to select Underline Tabs. In WordPerfect for DOS 6.x, use Font/Ctrl+F8, 6/Underline, 2/Tabs; in 5.x, use Format/Shift+F8, 4/Other, 7/Underline, Tabs.
Once the code for underlining tabs is placed in the document, text below it can use TAB or flush right with the underline feature. You can quickly draw horizontal lines by turning on underline (Ctrl+U or, in WordPerfect for DOS 5.x, F8) and pressing the TAB key. To stretch lines to the right margin, turn on underline then select flush right (ALT+F6 in DOS, ALT+F7 in Windows). Turn off underline after drawing the line.
