Paragraph Border Spacing Not Working

PSS ID Number: Q43499 Article last modified on 03-07-1997

====================================================================== 4.00 MACINTOSH kbusage SUMMARY ======= ———————————————————————- The information in this article applies to:

  • == Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, version 4.0 ==

In Microsoft Word for the Macintosh version 4.0, applying a spacing measurement in the Paragraph Borders dialog box may appear to work correctly if you do not specify the spacing value before you apply a border. However, you must type the spacing measurement before you add a border. This allows you to use different values for top, bottom, left, or right borders.

If you type a spacing measurement before or after clicking the Plain Box or Shadow Box option, Word applies the spacing to all four borders after you click the OK button.

If Paragraph Border Spacing appears to apply formatting incorrectly to the designated borders, reapply the border(s) by following these steps:

  1. Position the insertion point anywhere within the bordered paragraph(s).

  2. From the Format menu, choose Paragraph. Click the Borders button.

  3. Type the spacing measurement first, and then apply the desired border. Repeat this step for each custom border (left, right, top, bottom, and middle).

    Note: You should specify border spacing in point sizes.

  4. Click the OK button in the Borders dialog box, and then click OK again in the Paragraph dialog box to save the formatting.
