Subject Re: [UX][DISCUSS] Default Document Border
Date Fri, 28 Sep 2012 15:07:49 GMT
Hi Kevin,

the principles behind the Writer UI are WYSIWYG so including corner 
marks could destroy this principle. Page borders depend on the printer 
driver settings. If you use a printer driver that allows the use of 0" 
border then you can use it. To check the driver's setting just open the 
"Page" tabpage within the format page dialog and put your cursor into 
the page margins spinboxes and use PgUp/PgDown to see the borders 
allowed by the printer driver settings. If you really want such corner 
marks then it should be a configurable setting of the "control 
character" mode that you can switch on within the "Standard" function bar.

Kind regards, Joost
