A simple way to box some text in Pages
Authored by: CubaMark on Oct 17, '12 09:14:21AM

How is this different than inserting a Text Box? With a Text Box, you have a box of text that can be used as a callout, will move and allow the text around it to flow, and with the Object inspector, can have background fill, border effects, etc. (be sure to also use the Text inspector to adjust the inset margin so the text isn't overshadowed by any border effects).

A simple way to box some text in Pages

Suppose you have an existing document with 3 paragraphs of text and you want ONE paragraph to be in a box. This method works in two steps (before customizing w/background & border color):
1) triple click the paragraph to select it 2) Choose Format > Table > Convert Text
To do it with a text box is 5 steps:
1) Select the text 2) Cut the text 3) Insert text box 4) Paste the text 5) Resize text box to match margins of existing text
