I added borders to my document, but they don't appear on every page.
I can't see my page border.
Make sure you are viewing your document in print layout view (Print Layout view: A view of a document or other object as it will appear when you print it. For example, items such as headers, footnotes, columns, and text boxes appear in their actual positions.). You might be viewing your document in normal view (normal view: A view that shows text formatting and a simplified page layout. Normal view is convenient for most editing and formatting tasks.) — which does not display some graphic items such as AutoShapes (AutoShapes: A group of ready-made shapes that includes basic shapes, such as rectangles and circles, plus a variety of lines and connectors, block arrows, flowchart symbols, stars and banners, and callouts.) or page borders — or in Web layout view (Web Layout view: A view of a document as it will appear in a Web browser. For example, the document appears as one long page (without page breaks) and text and tables wrap to fit in the window.) — which treats the document as a single long page and does not display page breaks, page borders, or other page-specific items.
I can't see the top or bottom page borders on my screen.
A part of the page border is not printing.
- Check your border margins You might have positioned your border too close to the edge of a page. Most printers cannot print to the edge of a page — especially to the bottom of the page. The minimum amount of space needed between the margin and the edge of the page varies by printer. To adjust the page border margin, click Borders and Shading (Format menu), click the Page Border tab, and then click Options. Under Margin, adjust the settings you want.
- Check the distance between the page border and the text The distance between the page border and the text might place the border outside the page margin width. To adjust the distance, click Borders and Shading (Format menu), click the Page Border tab, and then click Options. Click Text under Measure from. Under Margin, adjust the settings you want.
- Check your page margins You might have set the page margins too close to the edge of the page. Adjust the page margins. (On the File menu, click Page Setup and then click the Margins tab).
The page border doesn't move when I change page margins.
Change the page border measurement to be in relation to the text rather than the edge of the page.
- On the Format menu, click Borders and Shading, and then click the Page Border tab.
- Click Options, and then click Text on the Measure from list.
I can't remove the shading from my page.
You may be seeing a watermark or background.
- On the Format menu, point to Background.
- Do one of the following:
- To remove a background, click No Fill.
- To remove a watermark, click Printed Watermark, and then click No watermark.
I changed the fill, border, shadow, or 3-D effect, but when I create a drawing object, I get the old settings.
I can't see the outlines of a drawing object.
I can't remove all the borders from my Web page.
Your borders may have been created with the DIV HTML element. Select all the text that the border surrounds. On the Format menu, click Borders and Shading, and then click the Borders tab. If multiple border levels appear under Apply to, select each border that you want to remove, and then click None.
The border around my paragraph appears cut off.
The paragraph with the border might fall across a page break. A border is a paragraph property that flows with the paragraph. When a paragraph with a border splits across a page break, the border splits as well. To keep the paragraph border in one piece, reposition the entire paragraph the border surrounds on one page.
I can't add, change, or remove a border or shading to specific table cells.
You may not have selected the end-of-cell marks. To select a cell with the end-of-cell mark, click the left edge of the cell.
