[Libreoffice-ux-advise] [Bug 87842] Writer zoom at "page width", option to eliminate 3d page edge and gutter

"I have" yes, exactly! This is your issue, the rest of us don't have an issue
with the UI as currently implemented. Comfortable saying that majority prefers
the current gutter and 3D page edge.

I am not saying suggeestion has no merit as an enhancement, but in truth it is
little more than a visual tweak, especially when there are substantive issues
of UI and UX to be tackled by our dev community. So I will take the
opportunity, to be just a tad dismissive.

> So I don't know why someone keeps flipping this bug to "solved."

Huh? The status is NEW and in ux-advise.  Please review the issue history in
the modified label above right.

Umm, it is "up the chain" and set NEW.  And accordingly here is a reality
check... unless closed again by the Design and UX-Advise team as WONTFIX, it
will languish as one of hundreds of enhancements to UI of equal or greater

Of course, you are welcome to code, or fund, an additional zoom mode or a
expert configuration toggle for the page edge.  Then go ahead and submit it for
review--it might even be a welcome improvement for someone else.
