Hi Fernand,

True for "page" layouts, but simple try a multiple column layout and try
to position a picture (anchored to the page)
The column boundaries are also gone.
If you anchor a picture to page, then the reference is the page not a
column. Anchoring to a page means, that the picture hovers over the
continuous text and stays on that specific page regardless how the
continuous text is changed
When using a multiple column layout, in 95% of the cases the pictures
are anchored to the page, because the editor want to fix the images on a
specific place in his layout, and most pictures are wider than 1 column,
see most of "magazines" layout.
We produce 8.000 magazine pages a year, using OO-LO, and yes we
positioning the pictures using Macro's etc, but in the end the user want
to move the images and then we surly need the colomn bouderies as a
. In such a situation an alignment to columns seems questionable to
me. If you want your picture inside a column use anchoring to paragraph.

Besides that, you know the column width and can set width and position
of the picture accordingly.
When using a 4 column layout, its problematic to have al this postions
in mind 9 mm, 43 mm , 95 mm, ect....
I know that people like using the mouse, but using the dialog is much
more precise and flexible.
here i can 100% agree, but we are talking about 5% of the users who
understand the allignment techniques, the rest use the mouse , eye and
boundarie lines :-)
Kind regards
       Another suggestion: Use F11 to open the Styles&  Formating dialog.
Click the Page styles icon. The right click the Default page style.
Using the Border tab, Set All Four Borders. Then select the width and
color of the border. Click OK.
      This could also be done with a page style you want to use.
      Granted when printing, it does require opening the page style and
selecting Set No Borders in this tab.
