Hey, it will be nice if we could not print area boundy.

This is a good idea, as long as it comes with an obvious toggle switch like unreferenced sections and crop boxes have.

Are you asking about boundary lines for Areas? (see image)

Or for adding a boundary to indicate a printable area? How is this different from a crop boundary?

My request pertains to the area boundary line for the designated area. It would be beneficial if we could work with the area boundary line & area in marketing or permit plans and print it without the boundary line, only showing the geometry and color scheme:

You could somewhat accomplish this by making a line pattern containing just a dot and a very long space and the set that in the override in that view as well as the colour to white. However this is a bit of a workaround and is not as simple.

If we could just have non-plotting line styles, that would fix this as well as allow us to have guide lines. Currently, I use white lines. But they will print white, which is not always desired when they lie on top of other objects.
