Microsoft Word doesn’t have a built-in feature specifically for adding borders to individual pieces of text (characters or words). However, you can create a similar effect using the following workaround:

Using a Text Box:

  1. Open Microsoft Word:
    • Launch Microsoft Word and open the document where you want to add a border to text.
  2. Insert a Text Box:
    • Go to the “Insert” tab on the Ribbon.
    • Click on the “Text Box” option.
    • Draw a text box around the text to which you want to add a border.
  3. Format the Text Box:
    • Click on the text box to select it.
    • Go to the “Format” tab on the Ribbon.
    • In the “Shape Fill” and “Shape Outline” options, choose the fill color and outline color for your text box.
    • Adjust the “Weight” of the outline to set the border thickness.
  4. Enter Text:
    • Inside the text box, enter the text you want to have a border.
    • Adjust the font style, size, and color as needed.

Additional Tips:

  • Text Box Positioning:
    • You can move and resize the text box to position it precisely around the text.
  • Multiple Text Boxes:
    • If you have multiple instances of text with borders, you can repeat the process and create additional text boxes.
  • Grouping Text Boxes:
    • You can group multiple text boxes together to move and resize them as a single unit.
  • Remove Text Box Border:
    • To remove the border of a text box, select the text box, go to the “Format” tab, and choose “No Outline” in the “Shape Outline” options.

Please note that Microsoft Word’s features may be updated over time, and it’s advisable to check for any new functionalities in the latest version of the software. If you have a more recent version of Microsoft Word, you can explore the software’s latest features and updates for any enhancements related to text borders.
