Is there a page layout view in calc, similar to MS Excel? In page layout view, the margins of the paper are shown as you work. For me, this creates a comfortable visual margin around my cells with data and formulae so they are not right on the edge of my screen, particularly on the left.

If this is not currently an option in Calc, are there plans to add this option? Is there a way to propose this improvement to the program?

Thank you kompilainenn, but View>Page Break only shows lines where the page breaks are. This is different than page layout view in Excel, where each page is shown as it will be printed, including the margins.

ok, then File->Print Preview

Thanks again, but print preview is also different than page layout view in excel. Print preview shows you how your spreadsheet will appear on the page, but you cannot work on the spreadsheet while viewing print preview. In excel, page layout view displays like print preview, including the margins, and you can work on the spreadsheet like normal while in this viewing mode.

@Zach: Could you find a solution? I am also looking for some kind of page layout view, all I figured out was: View->PageBreak
