Outline text box tool / Text border

acron shared this idea 8 years ago
Declined

Research shows a text box with a border enhances the readability of text.


GG provides the polygon tool which can do this quite well; however, it would be nicer to be able to click a property box in the individual text box property window which would add this to the current text box.


Please consider this request in the future of GG. It will assist in construction and pedagogy.


Thanks,


Tony


It would accent the background color selection currently available. Do not require both to be the same color.

Hi Tony,


Good idea.


A LaTeX workaround

    \fcolorbox{red}{white}{hello}

Thanks, this will help for LaTex boxes, but the majority of the boxes in the last applet I wrote did not use LaTex (2 out of 35).


For novices, a property or style bar check would be much better, even for LaTex based boxes.


Looking forward to implementation...


Tony

We can do this even without adding new buttons http://jira.geogebra.org/br...

Access to jira is restricted. What can I do about it?

You can use LaTeX, eg

FormulaText("\dbox{hello}")

Thanks Michael. Is there any other type of border available?
