I teach a language and am trying to make a word list on one side and then next to it an empty line next to the word. i can't seem to get it to work in numbers.

    ok, i need to kids to take a test so for example I need a word like casa and then next to casa i need an underline space for the kids to write house in English next to the word casa. i cannot get the cell next to the cell with text to just show the bottom cell line. if that makes sense.

    open the inspector by clicking the blue "i", and go to the yellow "table" tab. There is a section titled "cell borders" that lets you customize your spreadsheet like you were talking about. In the image, I have chosen the option that will let you control the lines for students to answer on. You can change the line style, thickness, and color for each side/top/bottom line that you can select within the cell borders section.

    Thanks. I appreciate the help. I for some reason can't see the picture you were trying to show me, but I already spent three days trying to use this cell border pop up menu; highlighting line,using  thick line, and to to no end have not been able to get it to work. Another problem is that i can't see what has been changed if I do try to change the cell border. I have to print it or do to show print preview to see the changes. I tried to do it with Mariner softeware for Mac and it literally took me 1 minute to get it to work. I basically bought this product for no reason.
