Adding a border around an image

Updated on

This feature is only available in the desktop editor.

There are two ways to add borders around images in an image content block. The first is to set the border for the image canvas. This will place a border around the entire image canvas, which is a combination of images and annotations.

The second way is to add a border around an individual image within the image canvas. This can be useful if you have multiple images on the image canvas and want them to stand out from one another.

Add a border to the image canvas

Select the image content block in the outline and change the Image Border in the content object property inspector.

Change image canvas border

Add a border to an individual image in the image canvas

  1. Select the image tool.
  2. Click on the image.
  3. Switch to the property inspector.
  4. Select Border Type.
Change image border



Is there a way to automatically apply the same border to all images in an article? Or do I have to do that with the CSS? Thanks!

@Lori - you can select all of the steps in the document and then change the border setting. That will update all steps in the article.


Thanks for the super quick response, Trevor! That worked perfectly.
