Objective 3. Add Special Paragraph Formatting

There are various ways to call attention to specific paragraphs of text. One way is to place a border around the paragraph. Another is to shade a paragraph, although use caution not to make the shade too dark, because shading can make the text difficult to read.

Activity 4.7. Adding a Border and Shading to a Paragraph

Paragraph borders provide strong visual cues to the reader. Shading can be used with or without borders. When used with a border, shading can be very effective.

NoteAdding Borders to Text

Add Simple Borders Using the Outside Border Button

Simple borders, and border edges, can be added using the Outside Border button on the Formatting toolbar. This button offers very little control, however, because line thickness and color depend on the previous thickness and color chosen from the Borders and Shading dialog box.


At the bottom of the Borders and Shading dialog box, click OK. Compare your paragraph border with the one shown in Figure 4.17.
