Hi Regina,

I hope you didn't take my previous words as a personal attack, which they weren't.

If I understand it right, the boundaries are only needed to align
pictures with the mouse. If that is true, I think, a better solution
would be not bringing back the border lines, but add a snapping feature.
So that you can not only snap to grid (who uses that and to what
purpose?) but snap to layout relevant positions, for example to
paragraph border, indent position, page border, explicit tabs.

What do you think?

The boundaries are another visual clue to what's on the page. I see them as useful as the unprintable characters are: a necessity when laying a page out.

I fail to see any use to the "angles" (don't know the actual name for these things) as they are currently implemented. If others can do with them, it's ok with me, no problem, as much as there are actually people working with hidden unprintable chars. The best of both worlds would be to display the (good ol') text boundaries according to the unprintable chars switch.

My two cents. Well, I hope for some more :)
