It is not clear, what the submitter of the bug wants.

I guess, that he wants the page borders shown in normal view. But I 
think, that would be no good idea, because the layout of the page 
contains also header, footer, and background, and considers repeating 
rows and columns, scaling and a lot of other things.

Yes, because the "page preview" is the command ".uno:PrintPreview" and 
is intended to show how the sheet content is distributed to the page and 
what effects the page layout settings have.

Currently there is no problem in showing page borders. The borders are 
shown, as well as background or other settings of the page layout.

The "page preview" shows the print ranges of all selected sheets. So it 
needs to calculate the borders of the page layout of all selected sheets.

But I do not see any problem at all.

Kind regards
