Sprucing Up Your Pages
Sprucing Up Your Pages
You can play interior decorator with the pages of a document by putting a
border around pages, splashing color on pages, and taking advantage of the
predesigned cover pages that Word provides for you. Keep reading if making
the pages of your document a little prettier interests you.
Decorating a page with a border
Word offers a means of decorating title pages, certificates, menus, and
similar documents with a page border. Besides lines, you can decorate the sides
of a page with stars, pieces of cake, and other artwork. If you want to place
a border around a page in the middle of a document, you must create a
section break where the page is.
Book II
Chapter 6
Before you create your border, place the cursor on the page where the
border is to appear. Place the cursor on the first page of a document if you
want to put a border around only the first page. If your document is divided
into sections and you want to put borders around certain pages in a section,
place the cursor in the section — either in the first page if you want the
borders to go around it, or in a subsequent page.
With the cursor in the right place, follow these steps to decorate your page
or pages with a border:
1. Go to the Design tab and click the Page Borders button.
You see the Borders and Shading dialog box, as shown in Figure 6-2.
2. Under Setting, choose which kind of border you want.
Use the None setting to remove borders.
