Here's the best workaround that I've discovered so far.  I have five really
large (400+) page documents that I'm constantly revising and that are only
printed once or twice a year.

First, I've set my default page style to include a very thin (0.02 pt wide)
light gray border around the entire printed area of the page.  Set the
distance from the border to the text in the page to zero.

Then, shaded the background of my headers and footers to have a very light
gray background, so as to be able to distinguish the main page from the
header and footer.

It will take less than a minute to get rid of these when printing.  For
draft printing, it doesn't make any difference whether these added things

By the way, in Apple's Pages word processor, margins and header and footers
can be shown or made invisible via the "Show Document Layout" under the View
menu.  Hmmmn.  Wonder why they do that if it's such a useless thing?
