Please describe what you mean:

- the border around the page (on all 4 sides)? This cannot be disabled.
- the thin line that symbolizes page breaks? This happens only in View > Continuous and is there by design.
- something else? Maybe include a screenshot.

The margin lines on the left, right and top of the text content area in standard view. And also the page break lines in continuous view.

The margin lines can be hidden in Tools/Options/View.

The page-break line in continuous view cannot be removed.

Thank you.

Regarding page break lines; I routinely create and work with word processor documents that are for my own personal use. I have no intention of ever publishing them, sharing them, nor printing them.

As such, pages and page break lines are an unnecessary distraction to me.

If I could somehow change the (user defined) paper height [in File > Page Setup > Page Format] to some really high number like 9999, then this would effectively eliminate me ever seeing a page break line in continous view, and also page breaks in standard view.

I basically want to view the document as one long page with no breaks or lines.

Apparently there is a paper height limit of 22in. Is there a config file where I could change this value to something other than 22?

I will refer a feature request to the developers to make the page break in the continuous view removable.
