Adding a Simple Border

The easiest way to add a nothing-fancy border to an item in your document is to select the item, and then click the Border button on the Formatting toolbar. If you click the Border button, the selected border option (the border option shown on the face of the button) is applied; if you click the Border button’s arrow, you can select from a number of border options, as described in Table 18-1. Keep in mind that the Border button is a toggle button; this means that with a click of the button, you can add borders if they aren’t present or remove borders if they are present.
