LibreOffice Writer displays the text boundaries on its pages, shown by small L-shapes at the four corners.

Having upgraded to version recently, those boundaries have disappeared.

I have checked that View > Text Boundaries is ticked.

How can I get those text boundaries back again, please?


I have noticed that this is happening only on some of my documents, not all of them. That means that it is document-specific. This confuses me greatly!

I disabled hardware acceleration and restart Writer. Did it and it's showed the corners marks again!
