Creating borders and boxes
Unlike tables, which must be created before you can insert text or images into their cells, you may either create a paragraph border, then insert the paragraph, or create the border around an existing paragraph. In fact, it is usually easier to do the latter.
To create a border around existing text
- Position the article cursor on any line of the paragraph (including beginning or end);
- Click Main menu ⁄ Format ⁄ Borders... to open the Lines window;
- Select the desired Style, Shading and Borders ;
- Click Draw Box to preview the result if necessary;
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 as required;
- When ready, click OK to create the border and exit, Upgrade to create the border and retain the Lines window;
- If you chose Upgrade, repeat steps 3 - 6, selecting Upgrade each time until satisfied. On clicking Upgrade the actual border will change in accordance with your latest selection.
To modify an existing border
- Position the article cursor anywhere within the border;
- Click Main menu ⁄ Format ⁄ Borders... to open the Lines window, which will display the values set for the existing border;
- Adjust the settings and click OK or Upgrade to view the result.
