Page border visible in preview mode


Recommended Posts

This can't be a deliberate design choice - in preview mode I still see the distracting grey borders around pages.

So there is no way to view or preview a publication without this border? That is no good for presenting a publication at the desk or in a meeting room without exporting to PDF which is not an option if you try out changes with someone live. The amount of "What is that grey border?" questions alone... or "Please hide it" requests... brrr...

Good question. Not new with the beta, though.

As a workaround: Preferences, User Interface, move the Background Gray slider to the right, lightening the background until it matches the border color.

Thanks, @walt.farrell  🙂

Yes, yet another workaround is possible, but the user interface is supposed to work for me, I am not supposed to work for the user interface. (That was for you, Serif 🙂 )

Hopefully we'll finally see this fixed at some point. I find this border very distracting and absolutely unnecessary, especially when we can freely adjust background color.

I understand that in some cases it may be useful to have another element that helps to visually separate working content from background.

But please, let us switch it off as well, at least in Preview mode — just like any other guides/bleeds/margins/rulers and etc.
