Please explain why this change is better?  How does it make users more
efficient?  I now have to hover to see the header/footer line.  How is that
faster than it was before?  How many word processors that offer decent
layout capabilities DON'T offer an option to actually see the page layout?
Really.  How many?

Paste a picture into a Writer document.  Be in the middle of the page where
you can't see the upper and lower corner markers for the page.  Drag the
picture left and right.  How can you tell when the picture is in the margin?
You can't  Do the same thing vertically.  How can you tell when the picture
is in the header or footer.  You can't.  For some operations you need to see
the actual page layout.

I strongly agree with that.

Some time ago, when Cedric introduced that "enhancement" on the FR users list, I did emphasize the drawbacks noibs and some others have explained here. All what I received where names and the suggestion to go to the ux list to discuss that.

I think the matter is not unimportant enough to be discussed in some hidden list while most *users* are here.

Anyway, that functionality (the text limit suppress) is not complete until some option is added somewhere to get it back if one so desires. This alone stops me from using Writer v.3.5 on a regular basis.
