HI all

 

Pages 09.  I'm creating some sheets for a stamp album to mount my collection.  Is there a choice of borders anywhere?  Also I need to measure the stamp  sizs and draw a box around where the stamp will mount.

 

Then I label everything.

 

It was easy many years ago using Word Perfect but I don't see anything in Pages I can use.

 

I appreciate any help

 

Thanks

Allen

Allen,

 

Fruhulda answered most of your questions, I think. Insert > Shape... will get the shape to your page. Then move it and size it either by dragging the handles or by entering positions and sizes the Metrics Inspector.

Allen,

 

Pages has a border stroke called Picture Frame with several pattern options. Here's an example where I have used rectangular shapes with No FIll. A border stroke was set to Picture Frame for the largest rectangle. I prefer using a Page Layout template for this.
