    I need a way to quickly select various pieces of text and give them boxes around them for background color, outlining, etc.

    There is probably a really easy way to do this and I just haven't discovered it yet.

    Rectangular marque around the text, then stroke?

    yeah that is how i have been doing it. when you have a lot of text and want to give everything a box or background color it takes a while.

    i want to do just that automatically then be able to grow the selection as i wish.

    perhaps it would be easier to make a new file the size you wanted and just type the text on the color back ground you want... then copy and paste into the full file?

    I'm not exactly sure what you're going for here.
