I have opened an old InDesign book file (2013) and the complete file has a black outline on all the pages.

Am unable to select, unlock, or delete this line in the art or master pages. It also appears in the pdf from same dates.
I need to make new single page pdf for a reprint and am unable at this point without redoing the whole book - 416 pages! The curious thing is the outline of 0.6 in the menu bar is selected [Basic Graphics Frame]+. Deselecting has no effect on the issue.

Any answers/remedies greatly appreciated.

Problem solved! I might add - this art was not generated by me and while looking how best to approach this conundrum have discovered a locked layer with an outline on pages. Why you would need this I don't know but there you have it.
