I can understand eliminating visible margins for people who desire that...but
why not make it a preference setting?  Yes, I already thought of either
using a colored background or a border around my writable area, but those
things print.  That's what I'll probably do, but it's a kludge that should
be necessary.

I'm a college professor who writes his own teaching materials.  Each course
features roughly a 400-page Writer document that contains a variety of
inline graphical objects created in Draw or Calc and then pasted in as a GDI
Metafile.  Usually, I need to resize those images and having visible margins
REALLY helps that process.

And I thought that Apple was the only entity who was making dumb user
interface issues like that.  Actually, not just Apple.  I'm running Ubuntu
11.10 in a virtual machine on my Macs (for some specialized tasks)--I can't
believe how bad the user-interface is.  I used to love the Ubuntu UI.
