Adding Page Backgrounds

Borders are lines or graphics that appear around a page, paragraph, selected text, or table cells. With borders, you can change the line style, width, and colors, and you can add shadows and 3D effects. In addition to a page border, you can also change the page color. If you apply a theme color as the page color, it changes if you change the document theme. Shading is a color that fills the background of selected text, paragraphs, or table cells. For more attractive pages, add clips or columns.
