There are several ways to make your text stand out from the rest of your document. One of these ways is to add borders and color to paragraphs in Google Docs and in this article we are going to teach you how to do it..
We cannot deny the enormous utility that Google Docs has in general terms, the simple fact of being able to install custom fonts, print a document with comments, functions as useful as search and replace, its recycling bin, etc. For this reason, today we will see how to highlight one or several paragraphs in a simple way, another function that will allow us to get the most out of this application.
Add a border or color to a paragraph in Google Docs
The first thing we will do is go to the Google Docs website , we will open our document and select the paragraph by dragging the cursor through the text. This will leave it blue..
Next, we go to “Format” in the menu at the top, move the cursor to Paragraph Styles and select “Borders and Shadows” in the pop-up window.
Once the Borders and Shadows window appears, we will have to choose the options that best suit us..
If we want to add a border, we start by choosing the width of the border. After this we will see the locations of the lines highlighted at the top. We'll need to click to select or deselect the edge positions we want to use.
Next, we are going to use the “Border Dash” dropdown boxes to choose a line style and “Border Color” to choose a color palette.
If we want to apply shading to the paragraph, we will have to use the “Background Color” dropdown box. We can use shading whether we use border or not.
We have another option that is the paragraph fill that is located at the bottom of the window. With this option, we can add more or less space between the text and the border or for the background color.
Once we finish applying the configuration in question, we will have to click on the “Apply” button.
If we want to remove a border or color that we added to our paragraph, we can reset the changes in a very simple way. Simply, we will choose paragraph and go to Format > Paragraph Styles > Borders and shadows. We click on "Reset" in the pop-up window and that's it.
As you can see, adding borders or color to a Google Docs document is something quite simple that we can achieve in a few steps.
