Is it supposed to be the default that when applying the Box text style that the "Box" decoration is outside a text frame?

There are no default Paragraph/Character Styles in Publisher. These are just sample styles. If you don't like them you can delete them or modify them to whatever suits your needs.

I understand that. What I am asking is that when applying the sample BOX style to text the "BOX" is outside the text frame. I have tried to adjust the settings in the decorations window, but nothing seems to be happening. I have looked through the help menu, but there is nothing that provides a decent explanation of how to work with or manipulate this particular style.

OK, so the stroke on the outside of the "box" is not cut off, just not present. Changing the stroke setting does not add a stroke to all side either.

So my next question is; if I want to change the "BOX" decoration is my only option to create an asset in Designer and use it with body text placed inside it?

I deleted all the as-shipped text styles, so I have no idea what the as-shipped box style is defined as.

But using these settings, all the borders appear for the paragraph style I created.

Perhaps the paragraph is overridden somehow.

Easiest means of helping would be to upload that sample document.

Yep, just figured out that the series of boxes is the stroke location around the text. It became apparent when I hovered over the boxes. 

There is no real sample document. I am just working through the setting in the Text Styles and observing what happens. In this instance, I just made a text box, inserted filler text and began applying styles to see what they looked like.

Thanks for the assist. I think this will work for now as a placeholder. I will likely be creating a custom asset for the box later.
