I am creating labels from a database for the Cub Scouts. The database field is surrounded by a thin black border. I can change the thickness of the border, but I cannot get rid of it with the "no line" option. Is it possible?

Appleworks 6.2.9; label has gradient background; font color black.

Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.4.5)

    As Emily Latella was wont to say: "never mind".

    It turns out that the layout mode puts a border in but that border disappears when in browse mode. I wish they didn't do that as it is confusing, but all is right with the world.

    It's your duty to define the borders of every fields.

    The application defaults to a thin border allowing us where is exactly the field area.
    If you dislike this setting, when you are in Layout mode, apply yo the borders the wished settings.

    It's a normal behavior in a country of free citizen's.

    The border around field frames in Layout is to let you see where they are, a very useful feature. The same borders also appear in Browse for individual fields when you place the insertion point in the field. This is also useful, as it initially shows what part of the field contents will be visible when the insertion point is NOT in the field.
