Add Picture Border

Post by 8fjrode3 » Tue Dec 12, 2017 6:05 pm

When I copy & past a picture (using the snapshot tool), is it possible to add a border to the picture after I paste the image into a document?

When you copy/paste via the Snapshot tool, you get an object that has no "border"-property.

The most easy method (at my opinion) is to use the Rectangle Tool (in the Comments/Annotations toolbar) to draw a border around the picture.

In the Rectangle-properties, you can set the Stroke Color (= for the border) and also the Border Width.
You can even change the Border Style, from "Solid" to "Dashed" if you like.
