Adding borders to text objects

You can add borders to text and system text objects individually, for example, if you want to make the boundaries of text objects clear. You can show borders on text objects in addition to erasing their backgrounds.


If you are in Engrave mode, Graphic Editing is selected in the Engrave toolbox.


  1. Select the text objects to which you want to add borders. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Border in the Text group.


Borders are added to the selected text objects.

  • Deactivating Border removes borders from the selected text objects.

  • You can show borders on text objects automatically by using paragraph styles set to show borders by default.
