Paragraph borders

Post by Babachiko » 2015-04-20 08:23:24

Is there a way to apply paragraph borders in Nisus Writer Pro (2.1.1)? I would like to underline a title, with a straight line that goes from the left to the right margin. Easily done with MS Word or Open Office. I haven’t found out how to do it with NWP. Thanks for any hint! Likewise, I would like to have a line above a footer. How do I go about it?

Thanks for any hint

Look in Format > Paragraph > Show Paragraph Borders Palette

Note that the Paragraph borders are sensitive to the paragraph indent settings. So if you have no indents, the line will go from margin to margin.

Some other tips:
1. There is also an accompanying palette called Paragraph Shading.
2. You can customize which palettes are included in your tool drawer using the menu Window > Palettes > Show Palette Library. You can also create new palette groups. If you use paragraph borders and shading a lot, you'll want to make them more accessible to yourself.

Thanks guys. Typical case of "Why had I to ask, it's so obvious?"
