Boxed text paragraph style within text frame?

I searched and didn’t see this addressed previously.

Is it not possible to used a boxed text paragraph style within a text frame?

In the example below, the second line of text is using a token. Since the width is variable, I’d prefer to use a boxed text instead of a border around the frame. But applying a boxed-text paragraph style doesn’t seem to create the box.


Just tried, and no box for me either.


No, I’m afraid it’s not possible. It’s something we’d like to make possible in future, but there’s no way to do it at present.

No, this feature is not included in Dorico as yet.

A quick solution I made yesterday, here we go: Boxed Text Font (updated)
