 Last night I downloaded and installed LO 3.5.1 and soon discovered
unlike 3.4.5 - in writer, there is no boundary line around the area
you type. There seems to be only an L shaped mark at each page corner.

Is there a way to get the text boundary line back?

No. In this branch (v.5.x), it is like that. A fix is already in place
the v.6.x branch under development. There, the textboundary is
[de]activated with the non-printable characters display setting which
fine to me.

I'm looking forward to getting v6 :)

     If you want this border and don't want to wait, try these steps
opening an new Writer document:

1)  Open the Styles and Formatting window using the F11 key.
2)  Click the Page Styles icon (should be fourth icon from the left) to
get the
   list of Page styles.
3)  Right click Default in that list and select New from the context
4)  Enter a name for the new page style. (I used 'My Default Page
5)  Click the Borders tab (yours probably reads Bourders).
6)  In the Line arraignment section click the second icon from the left
   the Default. This should create a four-sided border. Select the
   suggestion, gray 10% in the drop-down Color list.
7)  Click OK.
8)  Double click the name of your new page style to apply it to the
9)  Click the Save icon.
10) Name the document. (I used 'My Default template'.)
11) Change the File type to 'ODF Text Document Template (.ott)'
12) Save the file in the Documents folder.
13) File > Templates > Organize (This opens the Templates Managememt
14) Right click 'My Templates' in the list on the left.
15) Select 'Import templates'.
16) Browse to your template in the Documents folder, click it to
highlight it,
   and click Open. (The 'My Templates' has opened and your template is
   in it.
17) Right click your template and select 'Set As Default Template', and
click Close.
      Seems like quite a few steps, but now every time you open a new
text document, you will have the border you want.
      How do you remove this border when you have created your
document? Two choices: double click Default in the list of Page styles,
or Right click Your page style, select Modify, click the Bourders tab,
click the left icon below Default to remove all of the bourders. Click

Perhaps this will help.
