Add borders and rules (lines) to separate text in Keynote on Mac
You can add a solid, dashed or dotted rule (line) above or below a paragraph in a text box or shape.
Note: If the text is in a table cell, you can add a border around the cell. See Change the border and background of table cells.
Select the text where you want to add the border or rule.
In the Format sidebar, click the Text tab, then click the Layout button near the top.
Click the pop-up menu in the Paragraph Borders controls, then choose a line style.
A rule appears above each paragraph you selected.
Do any of the following:
Add one or more lines: Click one or more position buttons (below the line style pop-up menu and colour well).
Choose a colour that goes with your theme: Click the colour well to the left of the colour wheel, then choose a colour.
Choose any colour: Click the colour wheel, then choose a colour in the Colours window.
Change the line thickness: Click the arrows for the value field next to the line colour controls.
Change the amount of space between the line or border and the text: Click the Border Offset arrows.
To quickly remove the border or rule, select the text that has the border or rule, click the pop-up menu below Paragraph Borders, then choose None.
