How to Change Border Title in Microsoft Visio

To be able to change the border title in Microsoft Office Visio, make sure to know how to even add the border title first. The adding/changing of border titles has been available in Visio since Visio 2007, Visio 2010, Visio 2013, and the later versions of Visio, and the steps are as follows:

  • Step 1: Open the Microsoft Visio Program

  • Step 2: Add a Border or Title


    Think of a border or title as your Visio drawing’s background page. Borders and titles are visible on the Visio drawing yet they can be customized differently from the main diagram. So whether you are working on a blank drawing or opening an existing Visio file, add a border by clicking “Design.” Next, select “Borders & Titles.”

  • Step 3: Choose a Style and Navigate the Border


    Select your preferred border title style. Then, view the border title page on the bottom part of your Visio drawing. The default name is likely to be “VBackground-1.” And when you insert a border with plenty of other backgrounds on one drawing page, expect MS Visio to group them on the same background page.

  • Step 4: Change the Border Easily

    Double-click the border page tab or double-click the title box on your background page. The border/title would then be in text mode so you can erase the text and change its name to whatever you like by typing on your keyboard. Don’t forget to access the Design tab because you can also edit the color of your title or border page. Or, go to the Home tab and click “Text” to change the headers. Hence, you can alter the border title in Visio anytime.
