I am working with the 2015 version and cannot find paragraph borders. I have been attempting a workaround but haven't been able to give it the time it needs today. I thought perhaps an anchored text frame? Nope- that doesn't work.
Paragraph Shading was introduced in, I think, the previous version, so yo don’t have access to that feature.
Instead i would use an anchored text frame. Make a text frame with the desired shading, width, corner options, and inset. Paste it into the story an an anchored object and adjust the Anchored Object Options to get the position you want. Make that an Object Style.
I'll try it and let you know how it goes. Thanks for the excellent detail.
I thought I was making progress when I accomplished this:
Then I thought the answer was to create an object style and copy from document to document. But the second document isn't working.
I don't know how to go about duplicating the original. Any ideas?
