Hello there Lori,

You can add a border to text in a text widget by using a bit of html code. Here is how it is done:

  1. Drag a text widget onto the page
  2. Click on the HTML icon located on the Edit Toolbar
  3. Paste in this code <div style="width:400px;height:211px;border:2px solid red;">This is where your text goes</div>

This specific piece of code is set to have a width of 400px, a height of 211px, a border of 2px and a solid red color. You can change the various attributes to make it whatever size, width and color you would like.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
