Dressing Up Your Border
Dressing Up Your Border
You will probably want to modify the Setting options when you open the Borders And
Shading dialog box. These options control the overall look of the border, and they vary
depending on whether you’re working in a table or with standard text. If you’re working
with standard text, you can choose from the following Setting options:
None Shows no border around selected text and objects; this is the default.
Box Encloses the selection in a simple line box.
Shadow Outlines the selection with a box and adds a drop shadow below and to
the right of the selection.
3-D Creates a three-dimensional effect for the selected border, making it appear to
“stand out” from the page.
Custom Configures the Preview area so you can choose and customize the line
segments you want to include in your border.
If you’re working with a table or selected cells, you can choose among the following Setting
options:
None Shows no border around the table or selected cells.
Box Encloses the table or selected cells in a simple line box without internal lines.
All Outlines the entire table or selected cells, including borders between cells; this is
the default.
Grid Outlines a table or selected cells with a heavier exterior border and lighter
interior borders.
Custom Configures the Preview area so that you can choose and customize the line
segments you want to include in your border.
Note
You can mix and match border types to achieve the effect you want. For
example, you can add borders to part of a table and hide borders in other parts to
create the appearance of lines for text on forms that users will ill out. You can
further combine border options, such as color and line widths, to make borders
visually appealing.
