How to centre PCB on engineering sheet

KiCad 5.1.5

This is purely cosmetic as I haven’t found a need for the engineering sheet with the title block, whose lines are in dark red on screen and often not even noticed. Is there a use for it? It certainly doesn’t affect the plot output. Do people actually print it, title block and all?

Sometimes when I create the PCB file, I find that if I zoom out the board is far outside the engineering sheet. This is easy to fix, I just select the whole board and centre it on the engineering sheet. It’s just to satisfy my OCD. Is there a hotkey for this? Or is there a way to temporarily change the dark red to something brighter to do this? Here’s a screenshot. The lines are very faint, in dark red. I had to reduce the page size to A5 otherwise the sheet would be too large.
