    Hi all,

    Let me put you in situation,
    Two persons meet again, a few days after having a row.One of them apologizes to the other.This second person accepts the apologies and says : "Let's just put a line under it"

    What is the meaning of "Let's just put a line under it"?

    Kind of let's forget about it?

    Yes, you have interpreted it correctly. It means "Let's forget about it", "Let's treat the matter as closed". In my experience the expression is "Let's draw a line under it."
