Did you figure this out? I'm having the same problem. And it just started suddenly and only happens when I have zoomed in, which I have to do to see

I have never seen this behavior before. So, let's try the old standard for any weird iPad behavior, a restart or a reset. To do:

Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

Reset: Hold both the power and home buttons until the screen goes dark and the Apple logo then appears (the slide to unlock screen may or may not appear). Once the logo appears, release the buttons. After a time, your homescreen will appear. Please note that it may take some time for the Apple logo to appear or for your homescreen to appear (or both). This is normal. Eventually, the homescreen will appear.

See if that works for y'all. If so, yay! If not, holler back and we'll see what else we can try. Good luck.

I did the reset and it seems to have helped. The line has moved to the bottom of the screen and I can live with that. The size (width) of the line seems to have something to do with how far it's zoomed. I think it may have a purpose. The more I zoom, the shorter the line and it moves when I move my screen and seems to indicate how much of the page is not on my screen. When I get to the edge of the page, the line is against the side. And then it moves when I move the page over. At full size the line is gone. THANKS for the help!!
