The Document Border is a frame of reference that you can set up if you want to design within a constrained space (such as working within the width of your substrate). This is especially useful when using features like True Shape Nest, but also note that the RIP & Print window will automatically constrain designs to the media width, so you don't necessarily need to use the Document with every design.
Note that the Document and the border are completely visual; the document border and any settings you select will not print. It also will not force any constraints on your design. Some tools may use it to constrain some features, but the output to the printer will not be constrained by it.
The Document shape and border is controlled entirely within DesignCentral in the Document tab.
You can show the Document Tab in two ways
- Open DesignCentral and click an empty area in the document.
- From the File menu, select Document Setup.

Here is a document with a 0.5 inch margin applied to all sides.
