Make a border around a substack

Post by Kieutrang » Thu Oct 10, 2019 9:25 am

Is there a way to make a border around a substack? My substacks have the same background color as the mainstack so there is no delineation.
Thanks,
Erik Hansen

Hi Erik,

welcome to the forum!

Not directly, but you could place an unfilled graphic onto your card, know what I mean?
Create a graphic with the width and height of your stack, colorize it and set the linesize.

Ah, yes, sorry, completely forgot that you can set this for a CARD, maybe that is enough for Eric.

So UNCHECK threeD in the inspector for the card and then set the BORDERCOLOR of the card.
No idea if and how we can set the width (linesize?) of the border however.
