|- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh versions 4.0|
In Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, version 4.0, in order for the borders between formats to apply between two paragraphs, the two paragraphs must be exactly the same width (same indents) and must have the same borders applied.
For example, if two paragraphs have the same width and double-plain-box borders with dotted-line borders between them, the dotted border appears between the two paragraphs. However, if the top border is then removed from the first paragraph or the left indent on the ruler is moved for either paragraph, two double-line borders (and no dotted border) appear between the two paragraphs.
This is true with all border options except the border between paragraphs (dotted-line in the example above) option. In Word 4.0, if the border between paragraphs option is removed from either of the two paragraphs it is applied to, the border between these two paragraphs (dotted line) incorrectly remains (rather than being replaced by the two double-line borders).
This has been corrected in Word version 5.0
