Any way to turn blue frame edges on and off?

Recommended Posts

I'd love to be able to turn the blue frame edges surrounding text boxes on and off (preferably, without having to turn off all guidelines, margins, etc.)—in other words, the equivalent to ID's "Hide Frame Edges." I know I can temporarily view the document without them by hitting the space bar, but I want them to stay off—to be able to work without them there. Is there a way to do this?

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums, creative_bean.

As kazrbutler said, View > Show Text Flow is a good guess.

One warning: if you turn off Show Text Flow then if you have any Text Frames that have overflowed (too much text) you'll have no way of seeing that condition unless you have the Text Frame selected. With Show Text Flow on you'll always be able to see if Text Frames have overflowed, even if they aren't selected, as they'll be marked by red dots.
