A border is a great way to make your document stand out. It can be used for anything from emphasizing an important point, adding emphasis to a heading, or drawing attention to the beginning of a section.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to add a border in Google Docs.
How to Add a Border in Google Docs Using a Table
First, you will need to open the document in Google Docs.
By default, there will be a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, left, and right sides of the document. You will want to decrease the margins so you can have a wider border.
To adjust the margins, click on File > Page setup on the menu.
On the Page setup menu, adjust the Top, Bottom, Left, and Right margins. You can use Top 0, Bottom 0, Left 0.2, and Right 0.2.
Play around with the margins and adjust the numbers that best suit your needs.
Once you have adjusted the margins, it is time to create a border.
On the menu, click on Insert > Table and select a 1 x 1 table.
After you see the 1 x 1 table on the document, right-click inside the table and select Table Properties.
On the Table properties window, check the box for the Minimum row height dimensions.
Select a row height in inches such as 10.5 and click OK.
You should now see a border such as the one below.
You may need to adjust the margins or minimum row height dimensions with your preferred settings.
