    need one space between text and border line

    939357
      Please, help me.

      Is there any way to offset the text from the border a bit?
      I would like to have a black line around some boilerplate text, but the text is always butted against the border. Is there a way to offset the text a bit ?

      I've been searching in this forum and google and didn't find the answer yet.

      Thanks,

      Lan

          Hi, Lan
          if yo want to place a line you may choose underline option. Otherwise take a line/draw a line and keep space between the text and line.

          Hope this helps

            Is there a way easily?
            I already know that that solution. But it is troublesome when I face editing later - I have to edit all of it.
            But thanks for the answer :)

                There is no option for that. You can try these workarounds:
                - Center the text in the field, so you have some space to the left and right.
                - Put a frame around the text field and leave a bit of space between this frame and the text. Now, give the frame a border, instead of the text field.
