I am writing a Pages (5.5.3) document for my Diploma thesis.

Limited positioning of the border in Apple's Pages

Is there any solution for achieveing the following style (notice the blue and gray left borders):

A slide from Apple's WWDC presentation on "Building Better Apps with Value Types in Swift" (BTW, this is a slide from an Apple presentation)
