Creating Single Object from BorderArt in Publisher

Creating Single Object from BorderArt in Publisher


The information in this article applies to:

 - Microsoft Publisher for Windows, versions 1.0, 1.0a, 2.0, 2.0a
 - Microsoft Publisher for Windows 95, version 3.0

It is possible in Publisher 1.0 and 2.0 to create a single object from
a BorderArt pattern (for example, hearts or cabins).

1. Using the Box drawing tool, draw a very small square in either
   Publisher 1.0 or 2.0.

2. Select the square.

3. In Publisher 2.0, choose BorderArt from the Format menu. In
   Publisher 1.0, choose BorderArt from the Layout menu.

4. Choose a border that has components to it (for example, hearts,
   balloons, cabins, and so on). Do not choose a solid line border
   (this will produce a square).

5. Apply the BorderArt pattern. It should be a single object. If not:

   a. Resize the object horizontally, so that the BorderArt pattern
      appears as a single vertical line of objects.

   b. Resize the line of objects vertically down to a single object.

6. If a different size object is desirable, select the BorderArt
   pattern, choose BorderArt from the Format menu, and change the point
   size in the Border Size box in the BorderArt dialog box.
