The border you created appears on your document’s pages.
Figure 2-27:
You’ve got lots of flexibility in
creating borders in Word. Choose a kind
of border, define its style and
appearance, and apply it to a page, to
a section, or to the whole document.
Tip: You can also apply a border to a single paragraph (or group of paragraphs) from the Home tab’s
Paragraph section (Figure 2-15). Select the text you want the border to surround; on the Home tab, click
the down arrow beside the Border button (Alt, H, B). This opens a menu that gives you a range of border
choices: bottom, top, left, right, outside, inside—and any combination of these. To open the Borders and
Shading dialog box and use it to format a paragraph border, go to the bottom of the menu and click
Borders and Shading (Alt, H, B, O).
Inserting Headers, Footers, and Page Numbers
Headers, footers, and page numbers aren’t part of the main body of your document.
They live in its margins and provide running information throughout the
document. In a printed report, for example, headers might show the report’s title on
oddnumbered pages and the author’s name on even-numbered pages. A footer might
contain the company name or copyright information. This information appears
throughout the document, no matter how long or how short it is.
When it comes to inserting these elements, Word does a lot of the work for you,
with preformatted styles. To get started, click the Insert tab (Alt, N), and head to the
Header & Footer section, shown in Figure 2-28.
