On the older versions you used to be able to add a border and it would just be on the outside of the page. Now when I go to add border, it brings up border plus and it puts the border in every square. Does anyone know how to just get one borer?
To put a border along the edges of the page, the easiest method: draw a rectangle with transparent fill; change the outline width and outline color to whatever you want.
Also, under Effects, Insert Backdrop, there are a couple of border style backgrounds. Under Art & Photos, Insert Frame, there are some simple frames that can serve as borders. And then there is the Borders category in the Art Gallery. Over 14,000 clipart "borders" for different occasions.
The Border Plus feature is for making custom borders e.g. tiling your own photo around the edge of the page. Do not use Border Plus unless your purpose is to tile an image. Simply choose a border from the Art Gallery and position it on your page like this:
To be clear: Do not "Insert Border". Choose "Insert Art & Photos".
Still struggling with this. I wish there were better step by step directions? In the user guide maybe? But I cant find it So I added the shape, was able to adjust the color and thickness of the border, but how or where do I "choose transparent fill"? My box is solid which is covering up the stuff I want to put the border around
Yes, read the user guide and learn the basics. This is a totally new program with a totally new interface so trying to use it as if were an update of the old program will just frustrate you and make everything take longer.
Once you read about working with shapes, you'll realize how easy it is.
