I have the following text rectangle in InDesign, to which I would like to apply an effect that looks like it was torn, on the bottom.

enter image description here

The most I could do, is to add a rule below to the last paragraph, but this doesn't look good at all. Is there any way to change the appearance of the bottom border of a text rectangle in InDesign?

  • I don't believe this is (easily) accomplished via InDesign. You'd have to draw it with the Pen tool. – Scott Dec 16 '18 at 11:34

You can add an anchor object:

  • Five grouped wavy paths, the four bottoms with the paper stroke color (yellow in the example image)
  • Set the anchor object wide, position and leading
