  4. I am interested in this as well. There wasn't a response to this message in
    OE that came through; anyone have any idea re this?

  5. See http://sbarnhill.mvps.org/WordFAQs/BorderArt.htm, but note that Word is
    really not designed for this type of application; for that you'd be better
    off with Publisher.

  6. Actually, it worked excellently! In another wordprocessing application
    there was a built-in page border that looked like a caution barrier (like
    those that they used to put in construction sites to not pass. Now they
    just use the yellow plastic rolls). I used the Xmas wreath from that page
    as a template for size and covered it with yellow and black stripes. I cut
    out a white square from the middle so that it looked like a white page with
    a caution barrier border and applied that to a Word doct in the header, as
    per that page. I added my text, and voilĂ , the perfect sign for when the
    photocopier, etc., is out of order yet a maintenance call has been placed.
    Stick that on the device with tape and we've alerted the staff.

    Thanks. :eek:D

  7. Note that if you create the border and format it as Behind Text, you don't
    need to put a "white square in the middle." You can just use the document
    body for your typing area.

  8. I just used a graphic so don't know it would work without taking out the
    lines out of the the middle that I drew across the entire graphic so that
    they'd be even. Without removing that piece, the entire graphic would
    appear striped even where I didn't want it. I might be missing something,
    however.

  9. Ah, I see what you mean now. Yes, your approach sounds reasonable.

    This is exactly what I'm trying to do - create a "caution striped safety tape" border for commnications from a safety professional.

    Where did you get the clip art?

    Thanks for your help,
    John
