I want to add page border in each of my project's report page. If there is any command in sharelatex then let me know about it or else just give me some solution for it.

Here is a possible solution based on the packages eso-pic and calc.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{calc}
\usepackage{eso-pic}

\newlength{\PageFrameTopMargin}
\newlength{\PageFrameBottomMargin}
\newlength{\PageFrameLeftMargin}
\newlength{\PageFrameRightMargin}

\setlength{\PageFrameTopMargin}{1cm}
\setlength{\PageFrameBottomMargin}{1cm}
\setlength{\PageFrameLeftMargin}{1cm}
\setlength{\PageFrameRightMargin}{1cm}

\makeatletter

\newlength{\Page@FrameHeight}
\newlength{\Page@FrameWidth}

\AddToShipoutPicture{
  \thinlines
  \setlength{\Page@FrameHeight}{\paperheight-\PageFrameTopMargin-\PageFrameBottomMargin}
  \setlength{\Page@FrameWidth}{\paperwidth-\PageFrameLeftMargin-\PageFrameRightMargin}
  \put(\strip@pt\PageFrameLeftMargin,\strip@pt\PageFrameTopMargin){
    \framebox(\strip@pt\Page@FrameWidth, \strip@pt\Page@FrameHeight){}}}

\makeatother

\begin{document}

\section{Test}

\end{document}

It produces the following result.

Output of the MWE.

You can change the values for \PageFrameTopMargin, \PageFrameBottomMargin, \PageFrameLeftMargin and \PageFrameRightMargin in the preamble as needed.

  • Is there a way to modify this if the background of the page is colored? It seems that the color overrides the border. – R. B. Jawad Apr 23 at 22:23
