WORD 2010-2007 : HINTS ABOUT BORDERS

Border for a paragraph or a text ? Which selection ?

It all depends on your selection : if you include the paragraph mark, it will be a paragraph border and if you omit it, it will be a text border.

How to make the border more narrow ? Can I simply drag the border line ?

No, try and you will see that if the border can be dragged you can do so for only 31 pixels max ! The border follows the paragraph indents. Simply drag the left/right paragraph indents.

Why then drag the border line ?

To work on the distance between the text and the border line
