Borders make items in a page stand out visually. Borders are commonly used for buttons, containers, and anywhere where divisions of content need to be clear.
Control element borders with the settings inside Advanced -> Borders.
Set the border color.
Set the thickness of the border.
The default border style is none. Thus, there is no border.
To make the border visible, set this setting to one of the following:
- dotted – Specifies a dotted border
- dashed – Specifies a dashed border
- solid – Specifies a solid border
Unset all borders
To reset all border settings, click unset all borders. Styles for all borders are cleared.
Individual side editing
By default, you are editing all borders simultaneously.
If you want to edit just one side, choose it from the Currently Editing dropdown.
The effect of setting the border radius results in rounded corners. In fact, buttons with circular right and left sides are in fact rectangles with rounded borders. Their rounding radius can be large enough to make them appear circular.
Enter the radius in pixels to round the borders at all corners.
Edit Individual Radii
If you only want to round some of the corners, you can click Edit individual radii link under the Border Radius setting.
