As far as I can tell there is not away to apply a border to a text box?
It would be handy to be able to select a line style to apply.
It would also be easier to resize.
At the moment it is hard to tell when you run out of space.

Also the ability to scroll Zoom when inside the text box.
At the moment for me anyway, typing inside the text box disables the zoom button on the mouse.
I would like to be able to refer to the drawing by zooming in and out without having to re-select the the text box and then the typing position.
I imagine it could work by scroll zooming out, hover mouse over area to look at, which sets to the view area point. zoom in to look at the drawing. Zoom out, hover over text box. Zoom in, start typing.
or a different way.
Scroll zooming out, hover mouse over area to look at, which sets to view area. zoom in to look at the drawing. Typing any letter key would return you to the text box at the zoom level you were at before you zoomed out to look at the drawing.

Just a suggestion.

This feature request dates back to 2015 in TurboCAD, at least from what I can find via DDG and Gool.
Maybe instead of "border" it can be called a "fence".
I guess the dev folks don't find that feature request worthy of the dev work to do it.
