If you do not want to use Chart Border,

You can use a Textbox object behind your charts, you can use a transparent background colour, with Border width(Layout property).

you can also use an image or solid colors as background

Hello Ryan,

Drawing 4 line object outside he sheet objects as border is also a way.

But for me drawing 1 text box outside the sheet object is much better. Set it's transparency to 100%, increase the border width as per you.


1. Change the styling mode to advanced in Document Properties in the Settings option.


2. Set the border width and color as per you in the layout tab in the properties of your sheet object.


Result will be


1st image has it's own border which you can set in the layout tab.

2nd image has a separate border which is created by the textbox as explained above.

Hope this is helpful.

Thanks and Regards,
