Rome border

Postby stokes1957 » Fri Aug 10, 2018 11:26 pm

When I make a text box there are two borders around the frame. I can make the outside one disappear by changing color, but inner frame remains. Anyway I can make this disappear as well

There are a few different objects that people call "text box". How exactly are you making yours?

the frame

The FRAMEs have an inner "margin", named "PADDING". (You can adjust the padding size in the style of the FRAME.) The padding lines are helper lines only (like the MARGIN lines on the Writer PAGE). They will not be printed.

Please, edit the initial post in the topic: add the word [Solved] at the beginning of the subject line - if your problem has been solved.

As a new poster you will find much useful information in the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials, the up to date Writer guide and the Writer Manual. May I suggest you bookmark the pages.

Press F1 to access the Help screen and search for your problem

The chapter headings in the manual are:

1 - Introducing Writer
2 - Setting up Writer
3 - Working with Text
4 - Formatting Pages
5 - Printing, Exporting, Faxing and E-Mailing
6 - Introduction to Styles
7 - Working with Styles
8 - Working with Graphics
9 - Working with Tables
10 - Working with Templates
11 - Using Mail Merge
12 - Tables of Contents, Indexes and Bibliographies
13 - Working with Master Documents
14 - Working with Fields
15 - Using Forms in Writer
16 - Customizing Writer – Keyboard shortcuts.

When a pop-up window opens, click the Help button for extensive help on that function - it is often more comprehensive than the manual.

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
