Adobe InDesign CC (13), released back on October 18, 2017, introduced Paragraph Borders (or strokes) around one or more paragraphs. This was a great new feature, but had one major problem. When creating a border around consecutive paragraphs, the borders often would overlap. You could fix it manually, which was rather time consuming, or use a free script to fix this problem.
Paragraph Borders Improved
Adobe InDesign CC, released on March 12, 2018, improved the Paragraph Borders. You can now create borders that enclose multiple paragraphs using the Paragraph Border feature.
Paragraph Border Options
Select the “Merge Consecutive Borders and Shading with Same Settings” option while creating a paragraph border to merge the paragraph borders of two consecutive paragraphs, provided they have same paragraph border and shading properties.
Note: “Merge Consecutive Borders and Shading with Same Settings” appears in the Paragraph Style Options as well as the Borders and Paragraph Shading dialog box. If you have a multi‐column frame and you want the border to continue, make sure you also check “Display Boarder if Paragraph Splits Across Frames / Columns”.
