Is it possible to have ruled lines in emacs? I would like to have the same look of a notebook while writing my org files.

    looks like a feature request to me. – Prasanna Oct 21 '16 at 18:04
  • You may add the /Box/ property to the default face, but I'm afraid all of your Emacs will look quite ugly. M-x customize-face – Juancho Oct 21 '16 at 19:44
  • The form-feed character #x0C can be displayed as horizontal line with the packages form-feed and page-break-lines. Pityingly it would cause double-line spacing if this technique was used for newlines. Maybe the lines can be squeezed a bit. – Tobias Oct 21 '16 at 20:37
  • Not to rain on your parade, but if it does turn out to be a feature request, it's likely to be low priority since it would be a purely visual rather than functional feature. – Dan Oct 21 '16 at 23:33
  • It should already be feasible on elisp level. One could pad the visible part of the buffer with spaces (maybe with the after-string text property) and use some underlined face. – Tobias Oct 22 '16 at 0:29
