Oren suggests a different type of line for the boxes that contain the field values. He
thinks the solid line currently used on the form somewhat overshadows the field values
within the boxes, and that a more subtle type of line might look better and make the field
values easier to read.
Changing the Type of Line on a Form
A line on a form, such as the box around each field value, is another type of control that
you can modify in Layout view. The Controls group provides options for changing the
thickness, type, and color of any line on a form. Next, you’ll change the type of line for
the boxes around the field values on the Customer Data form.

1. Click the field value 11001 for the Customer ID field. An orange outline appears
around the box to indicate it is selected. The field value is also selected, and its
appearance can be modified. See Figure 4-8.
