Hi all !
About hiding/showing the page breaks in Writer, we were 4 people to
disagree with the idea of showing them only with the non printable
Only 2 agreed with the idea.
And one of us agreed with both sides. ;)
(The discussion was on the French mailing-list.)
The text boundaries are useful informations. And the text is just
unreadable with non printable characters. What’s the point of burying
page breaks in an unreadable mode? The page breaks are major elements to
understand a document structure, like text boundaries, and have more
importance than whitespaces. That’s what we were saying.
My suggestion was :
- show the already existing almost unnoticable lines if the non printing
characters are not displayed (like text boundaries),
- display the very shiny new page breaks with the non printing characters.
Displaying only the page breaks with the non printable characters would
just make Writer just unusable and will hide the document structure for
many of us who feel that it’s an important point to create
