Box tab

A box can be used to apply a border and/or a color fill to one or more contiguous paragraphs, tables, or images. A box starts when a mapping sets the Start box property and ends when a mapping sets the End box property.

It is important not to misunderstand the significance of this tab. Setting a box style does not mean that the current element is mapped as a box. Rather, it defines a set of styling rules applied to any box declared at or within the context of the mapped element. The style will remain in force unless overridden lower down in the document element hierarchy. When a mapping starts a box, the box style currently in effect is applied to it.

This tab is inactive if the Inherit current box style box is checked.
