Chapter 7. Formatting Lines and Paragrap... > Adding Borders, Drop Shadows, and Fi...

Adding Borders, Drop Shadows, and Fills

Strictly speaking, a paragraph is any amount of text followed by a hard return, so a date on a line by itself is treated as a paragraph. You can create a box around any paragraph (or multiple paragraphs) by using the Border feature. A well-chosen border creates a frame around the paragraph, emphasizing it and setting it apart from the rest of the text. You can create a drop shadow behind the box, and you can add a background (fill) to the area inside the border.

Note

You can add borders around a page, a column, or a graphics box. The dialog boxes are virtually identical to the Paragraph Border/Fill dialog box, so rather than repeat this discussion in those respective sections, I’ll refer you to this section for information on choosing the border, the drop shadow, and the fill.
