Image Border Size - Going Above 9.00 pt?


I am using LibreOffice version 7.2.5 and editing texts using Writer.

As shown in the screenshot attached, under “Borders” > “Line” > “Width”, the value is 9.00 pt at maximum. When set above 9.00 pt, it is set back to 9.00 pt.

How would I go about going above the 9.00 pt limitation?

Yes, I could understand that in my case.

You create a drawing object “Rectangle” in Draw.
You insert your image and set the size.
Resize the rectangle to serve as a border for the image.
Right-click on the rectangle and select Area.
Select the Pattern tab and choose or adjust a pattern there.
You can Add the pattern in the Pattern Gallery.
Then click OK.
Place the image into the rectangle.
Select both.
Right-click and select Align Objects; 1. Centred; 2. Centre.
Group the rectangle and the image.
