Inserting a Border Around a Page
4. Click the Options button in the lower-right corner of the Borders and Shading
dialog box. The Border and Shading Options dialog box opens. By default, the
border is positioned 24 points from the edges of the page. To ensure that your
printer will print the entire border, you need to change the Measure from
setting so that it is positioned relative to the outside edge of the text rather than the
edge of the page.
5. Click the Measure from arrow and then click Text . The settings in the Top and
Bottom boxes change to 1 pt, and the settings in the Left and Right boxes change
to 4 pt, indicating the border’s position relative to the edge of the text.
6. Click the OK button in the Border and Shading Options dialog box, and then click
the OK button in the Borders and Shading dialog box. The newsletter now has an
attractive border. See Figure 4-34.

Trouble? If the WordArt and clip art move out of position after inserting the
