With the white arrow – the direct selection tool – you can select the bottom vertexes of your rectangle; but that won't do you any good. The border of a frame in InDesign is applied to the entire frame, not on a per-selection basis (just like in Illustrator). Some other options: Put your text inside a one-cell table. Each of a cell's borders can have a ...

I like a short way with very precise results: If you have these shapes: You expand the lines Object->Expand, select all shapes Command/Control+a and use Dividecommand of Pathfinder. After that you delete the shapes you don't need to get the final result:

To create a set of mutually exclusive checkboxes (behaving like radiobuttons, but allow to be unchecked), ...

My method: 1) Create a pattern brush using grey for the inner sections, but with bright red end caps for the beginning and end sections. 2) Apply the brush to the artwork to identify the open paths. 3) Undo the apply, then fix the path. I hope this helps.

As AndrewH said, you should just make a clipping path of the black shape on top of the lines. Then the lines would be fully editable. Take the black shape. Copy to clipboard. Do Edit > Paste In Front. Before doing Paste In Front, make sure that nothing is selected by checking the Layers Panel, or go to Select > Deselect. You want the black shape your are ...
