Adding borders to line text

You can add borders to text shown on individual lines and change the border thickness; for example, if you want to make the boundary of the text relative to the line clear. You can do this for the current layout and frame chain only, or for all layouts and frame chains.


  • The lower zone is shown.

  • Properties is selected in the lower zone toolbar.

  • Graphic Editing Graphic Editing button is selected in the Engrave toolbox.

  • You have chosen the appropriate property scope for local properties.


  1. In Engrave mode, select the lines whose text you want to add borders to.

    You must select either only horizontal lines or only vertical lines.

  2. In the Properties panel, activate Border thickness in either the Horizontal Lines or Vertical Lines group.
  3. Change the value in the value field.


Borders with the corresponding thickness are added to text on the selected lines. If the property scope was set to Locally, this change only takes effect in the current layout and frame chain.
