Description gleppert 2011-07-15 12:47:06 UTC
Applying decorative effects to page borders is a frequently used feature in MS Word and WordPerfect and an often requested feature for OpenOffice/LibreOffice. Decorative borders are used for many different types of documents, such as certificates, posters, phone lists, leaflets, memos, invitations, and more.

Whereas this feature in MS Word is somewhat limited, the functionality in WordPerfect produces higher quality documents. Please see the attachments to this bug.

Currently, in LibreOffice "Format"-"Page" - "Borders" provides only very limited functionality.

This enhancement request is adapted from OpenOffice bugtracker where it gathered 71 votes and was open since 2004: https://openoffice.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=24923
