Downloading, Documentation, Modifications, and Support

* - Note that the ZIP file contains separate versions for WP7/8 and WP9 and later (which can produce underlines in color), named TxtBord8.wcm and TxtBord9.wcm.

This macro allows you to select up to 50 characters (including symbols), and choose a font, font size, color, shade, and margin settings for a text border.

The text border is placed clockwise around the page in four text boxes (which can be repositioned as well as edited by clicking on a box).

Good for title pages, one-page flyers, announcements, invitations, for-sale signs, etc.

[Text Border is an extensively modified, expanded, and annotated macro based on a similar macro by David Kosorok that was shown in (the now defunct) WordPerfect Magazine.]
