Description punisher 2005-02-19 02:12:04 UTC
When you toggle display of "Nonprinting Characters," OpenOffice 2.0.79 does not
display page or section break indicators.  This makes it exceptionally difficult
to determine where the breaks are and what type they are.  Compare with
Microsoft Word which does show them.

I have even tried selection the options under Options --> OpenOffice.Org Writer
--> Formatting Aids --> Display Of, and I still see not breaks indicated, even
though they are in the document and Microsoft Word does display them.
Comment 1 punisher 2005-02-19 02:18:39 UTC
I looked again and what I notice is that OpenOffice appears to use a single very
thin line to represent page and section breaks.  This is highly ambiguous and
practically meaningless, because there is no indication of what the line is, nor
is there any indication as to whether it is representing a page or section
break.  There needs to be words added somehow so a typical user knows what
he/she is looking at.

Currently a page break is displayed as blue line at the top border of a page and
sections are displayed as grey line.
Mybe this could be enhanced somehow.

Issue still exists in OpenOffice 3.0 beta; however, I'm resolving WONTFIX, since
it's received no attention.

Many thanks for the valuable feedback.
Please don't close issues just due to lack of progress... some things are worth
waiting for! However, in this case it is a duplicate of Issue 33518.
