Default Borders in consecutive paaragraphs

I am trying to define TOC styles so that every entry in the TOC has a bottom
border. The problem is that if consecutive paragraphs have the same border,
the border is only displayed in the last of the paragraphs.

You'll need a Horizontal Inside Border as well.

But how do you do an inside border when applied to a paragraph, not a table?

You need to select two paragraphs to make that option available in the
Borders and Shading dialog.

I was trying to do it by modifying the TOC1 style. As you save, you get this
option if you select two paragraghs with the TOC1 style attached before
selecting Modify but in theory you didn't ought to need to do this if
modifying a style.

TOC styles are set to update automatically, so you can select any two TOC
entries at the appropriate level and apply this formatting, and it will be
saved to the style.

I always remove the update automatically option - to quote one of your
fellow MVPs - it should be renamed "screw up automatically".

Anyway, it works now, so thanks again.

I believe it is useful for the TOC styles (especially when the entire entry
is linked, making it more difficult than usual to access the Modify Style
dialog for the TOC style), so I leave it enabled for those; I think those
are about the only ones that are so formatted by default.
