I am making a poster with Inkscape (version 0.9.1 Ubuntu). I would like to make a simple border with a specific colour and width.
What I have done previously in other applications such as LibreOffice Draw is to create an object as a group of rectangles which reproduces the border. I would prefer to edit the page properties instead of add objects to the page.
The only way I can think to do this right now is to add a base layer to the page, group four rectangles onto it in the shape of the border and then add transparent layers to that. I would like to avoid this though.
