Subject Thanks!! plus borders problem
Date Mon, 06 May 2013 17:52:02 GMT
Thanks you *so* much for your suggestions -- they worked like a charm.  I
used the Table option, instead of the columns, and it looks great!

One more question.  I am trying to add a border with a shadow, but the
border will *not* appear!  I go to Format > Page  and click on the Borders
tab, choose  5 pt, color green -- but nothing shows.  If I add a shadow,
the shadow shows but not the border. (I have tried with margins set at both
.5" and .8".)  Although I click OK at the end, when I return to the same
formatting option, the 0.05pt option is selected instead of the 5.0.  Any
ideas??

Thanks again,
Pat
