how to hide unwanted borders and markup in PDF file?
« on: June 25, 2020, 07:45:38 pm »
Hello,

I'm trying to get a clean PDF for my resume that I can email to other people, but it always includes some sort of border or markup. In this example, It is showing yellow border in the page, and I'm not sure how to get rid of it. Any help appreciated. Thanks

Thanks. Actually just solved the issue.

It seemed it wasn't a Scribus issue, but a file outline issue.

In my outline, there was a 'Layer: "Print Marks"', with these invisible elements that comprised the those yellow lines - a box, and a line near the top. I deleted those, and the PDF is clean now.
