Turn off gray margin indicators in Word Print View

Guest

After I received a document with the corner margin indicators from a
co-worker, I haven't been able to turn them off in any document - even those
that I created previously. I don't know what they are called officially, but
they are light gray in color and appear at what I believe to be the corner
margins. They appear in the Print Layout view.

Click TOOLS, OPTIONS and if necessary, click the VIEW tab.

Locate the Print and Web Layout Options and click off the TEXT BOUNDARIES
text box to remove the border lines.

The Text Boundaries aren't the same thing. If I turn on the Text Boundaries,
the indicators that I am looking at meet the Text Boundary at the corners,
but open in the opposite direction, and are corners only, not a full outline.

Thanks for the hint, but the margin indicators that I am seeing are in the
corners only - they don't outline a complete area. I turned on and off the
TEXT BOUNDARIES as you suggested - the gray corner indcators touch the
corners of the TEXT BOUNDARY, but open to the opposite side as if flipped
diagonally.

See “Margin marks or crop marks appear on each corner of the page when you
open a document in Word 2002 or in Word 2003â€

We have seen some reports of intractable cases of this problem; so far as I
know, no cause or solution has been established.
