Header and footers in page setup: can I remove the border

1.14K viewsGeneral Discussion

When I set headers of footers in Page setup for any kind of Quantrix view, headers and footers are printed by default with a thin black border all around (see image). In order to have a cleaner layout, I would like to remove such border or configure it (e.g. only top). I cannot find a setting to do that in the Page setup dialog boxes. Is there some other way to achieve that result? Thanks!

Hi @lerzegov — I’m checking with our team internally on this to confirm, but today there is no functionality to edit/configure the borders on the headers and footers. Are you using Mac or PC, and what version of Quantrix? If you like, you can email me separately at lweber@quantrix.com

I’ll follow up when I receive confirmation from our internal team.

— Thanks, Lyndsey


Thanks @lyndseyweber and @SAU for you kind answers, sorry for giving feedback after some time.

@lyndseyweber : I am working with QM 2022.2 on a Macbook with M1 chip. If the header/footer border could be made configurable in a future release, that would be great. I am producing interactive models for my finance class in QM and with the requested enhancement I could obtain a clean printable version of canvasses organized as presentation slides. Thanks for following up with the development team and explaining the issue.

@SAU: I will try your first suggestion to use a Windows installation, that provides an immediate solution, thanks.

Luca, hello!

If you haven’t solved the problem yet, here are my two strategies for solving it in order of increasing solution time.

1. Open your QM model file in the Windows version of QM. For this purpose you can use both the trial version of QM and the virtual version of Windows (Windows emulation).

2. Print your QM model on a PDF printer to a PDF file, and then remove the frames from the resulting PDF file in a separate PDF editor. Of course, this process will take longer.

Good luck

I’ve confirmed that this formatting of the borders is specific to Mac and is not editable. We’ve logged this as an enhancement request for a future release.
