Border around text blocks
It would be nice to be able to turn ON a border around a text or image block. Just like you can see the faint outline when hovering over it, it would be useful to help separate areas of a page into distinct thoughts.
Stretch Goal - Color choice for a border.

Agreed on this.
please add this feature. We need to be able to distinguish one text box from another.
5 years...looks like this is not going to come to fruition...bummer
thanks LN, unbelievable we have to use hacky work-arounds
Sarath Prasad commented
Exactly .. This feature should be added
You rock LN, thanks for this.
agreed. please add border feature for text box.
and please allow for shading, not just highlight of text.
Can't see if someone has mentioned this. Once you've used LN's tip re 1x1 table, right click the table then select "table". You'll then have options to shade the box - just pick a colour and off you go. I agree with everyone this should be much easier
@LN thank you for your tip !
Move content in 1x1 Grid !
Please add this feature!
I also agree that this is a much needed feature. Please allow borders and shading of the text boxes. I am a new user to OneNote and have become an instant fan, this additional tool will be very helpful to me.
@LN: great tip! Thank you.
I agree. I Googled and came to this page trying to find out how to do it. Guess you can't! Please add this feature.
Ditto - please add!
I would love this enhancement! Please make it happen!
Still looking for this feature....
yess i need too
Not sure if anyone reads these.... But a workaround...
Highlight the entire note (Ctrl-A twice, or use your mouse). In the Ribbon at the top, choose Insert, the Table, then choose a 1x1 Grid. It creates a cell around everything in the note.
It's not as easy as one click from the pop-up hover shortcut menu. But you get your border and you can fill it with whatever color you want.
And allow color fill of the blocks, please!
Please also allow color fill of the text boxes, like you have in most other Office programs. It would be a huge help in TO DO lists and for making Post-it style notes.
