Faded page border

Post by ptram »

Hi,

I don't know the others, but I use a bright page background. This makes the black page border a bit too 'rough' and 'sharp'. This might be a minor issue for some, but I think that a grey or faded border would make the appearance more elegant, maybe even less distracting.

To be clear that I understand, you mean the thin black line that frames each page and at the top of the document sits just a few points down from the ruler?

Martin, you are correct. I mean the thin frame that separates the white area of the page, from the darker background around the page.

To be honest, what I would like was a bit more realism for the page representation. A hint of shadow might help. And smoothed borders would probably help, too.

(Not that this would be an essential feature, mind you; just a way to make things even nicer).

Again on this issue; I like this page "theme" very much:

Just a slight shadow, with a gentle fading out from the page to the border. I don't know if the customizable background can cause problems with something like this.

Are you talking about the black line between the white text area and the blue background in my exploded screenshot? Seems very inconsequential and such a little thing to criticize if it is. Going to Draft View eliminates this "problem."

Yes, Craig, I intend that line. And no, I don't think this is a major annoyance, but I take freedom to suggest a way to adding "charme" to the visual appearance of the page. All considered, we have 3D tab stops, so a 3D page representation shouldn't do too much harm to the overall functionality of the program.

I fear that switching to Draft View is not a solution, but a way to override the "problem", going in the opposite direction than my humble "search for more realism".
