Creating a Page Border
Creating a Page Border
Begin the process of adding a border to the page by displaying the Borders and
Shading dialog box and selecting the Page Border tab. The main visual difference between the
Borders tab and the Page Border tab is the addition of the Art list (which is covered on
page 599). On the Page Border tab, after you make all of your border choices, the border is
applied to an entire page, section, or document. The following procedure describes the
process:
1. Click in a page or section to which you want to apply a border.
2. On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click the Borders button.
In the Borders And Shading dialog box, select the Page Border tab.
3.
4. Click a page border setting (Box, Shadow, 3-D, or Custom).
5. From the Style list, select a line style.
6. On the Color list, select a color if desired.
7. Click the Width arrow and then choose the line width you want.
The Style, Color, and Width settings are reflected in the Preview area.
If desired, use the Preview image to select which edges of the page will have a page
border.
8.
9. On the Apply To list, specify where the border should apply.
Available options are Whole Document, This Section, This Section – First Page Only,
and This Section – All Except First Page. By default, Whole Document is selected on
the Apply To list; therefore, the border is added to all pages in the current document.
10. Click OK to close the dialog box and apply the page border settings to the current
document.
Note
To apply a page border to a single page (other than the first page) or to a few
pages in a long document, you must first set off the page or pages by creating a
section. To learn more about creating and working with sections, see Chapter 6,
“Setting Up Your Layout with Page Backgrounds and Columns.”
