Hi,

Is there anyway to add a border as part of a style please? Thank you. I'm thinking of a paragraph of text with a border around it.
Blessings, Stacey

I see no way to add any sort of fancy borders to text. There are simple color borders that you can use, but nothing more that I can find easily. Truthfully, I would not expect that sort of thing within Scrivener - it is much more of a presentation thing rather than a writing thing.

Simple is fine. I just need a border.

Here is the simple stuff I did:
1) I opened up the Styles panel (figure 1)

I then created and tested the style with a simple color border (figure 2)

As I said, it was pretty simple and basic color border stuff. I have not seen anything like you would find in a dedicated word processor.
