Adding Borders to Sections and Paragraphs
Adding Borders to Sections and Paragraphs
Borders add emphasis to the page, section, or paragraph to which you want to call the
reader’s attention. Word 2010 makes it easy to add borders to sections, paragraphs, images,
or even words or phrases, if you like. Using the Apply To setting in the Borders And Shading
dialog box, you can choose the item you want to change.
If you want to create a border around a section in your document, use the Page
Border tab. On the Apply To list, you can find what you need to specify section bordering
options.
If you want to add a border around a paragraph, text, table, image, selected table
cell, or other element in your document, use the Borders tab. The Apply To options
on that tab offer choices specific to the item you choose.
INSIDE OUT
My Border Covers Up Part of a Photo in My Document
You might find that the page or section border that you’ve added overlaps an image in
your document. You can ix this (and create a great effect at the same time) by moving
the border behind the image. To do so, display the Borders And Shading dialog box
(click Borders in the Paragraph group on the Home tab), select the Page Border tab,
and then click Options. In the Options section, clear the check box for Always Display
In Front.
Bordering Sections
You might want to create a border around a section when you have specific information to
highlight or when you want to set a section apart from the main low of the text. To create
a section border, start by placing the insertion point in the section you want to highlight.
Display the Borders And Shading dialog box (click Borders in the Paragraph group on the
Home tab) and then click the Page Border tab. Next, configure the border effects, including
the Setting option and line style, color, and width. Click the Apply To arrow and select your
choice: Whole Document, This Section, This Section – First Page Only, or This Section – All
Except First Page. Finally, click the OK button to create your border.
If you want to see how the border looks for the entire section, click Print on the File tab.
Adjust the Zoom controls so that two pages appear in the preview area. This helps you see
the effect of your border selection on more than one page in your document.
