Can't delete line around text frame
« on: January 18, 2021, 08:39:32 pm »
I have a thin red line around a text frame and I would like to get rid of the line.  When I go into properties and select line, I see no way to get rid of the line, only to change its size (but I can't change the size to 0).

I would think that the "no style" option would help, but it doesn't.  The smallest size it allows is hair width, and it does not accept 0.

The "none" option is greyed out.

Could you put up a screenshot with the red line around the frame? There a few reasons that the actual text frame itself will turn red, such as overflow text or even just being selected.

Select the text frame with one single click so you can see the handles.

Then go to »Colors«, select »Stroke« and set to »None«.
