Choosing Border Options

Word makes a few assumptions about the way borders appear in documents. By default, Word applies a small margin to borders applied to a paragraph and a larger margin to borders for sections and pages. When you add a border to a paragraph, Word adds a 1-point margin to the top and bottom and a 4-point margin along the left and right edges of the border. When you add a page or section border, Word adds 24-point margins measured from the edge of the page all the way around.

To access border options that enable you to adjust spacing between borders and content, choose Format, Borders And Shading. Display the Borders tab if you’re changing the options for a paragraph border, or click the Page Border tab if you’re working with a document or section border. Then click Options in the lower-right corner of the dialog box. The Border And Shading Options dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 18-7.
