Alignment of stroked frames
When a frame is stroked, Scribus aligns it with the middle of the stroke-width to guide-lines, page-borders and so on. That's not what I want: I normaly need an alignment where the outer side of the frame, including the whole stroke-width, is used as snap-in for the guides.
There's a workaround for getting this behavior:
- Create your stroked frame with - for example - a stroke-width of 2 mm. Scribus will add the stroke-line centered to the frame's border.
- Create another frame without any stroke. Set it's height and width to the values of the stroked frames, adding the width of the stroke. For example: When your stroked frame has a height of 50 mm, a width of 20 mm and a stroke of 2 mm, set the new frame's height to 52 mm and it's width to 22 mm.
- Now align the two frames so that their upper right corners are overlying. In the example above: Set the non-stroked frame's X- and Y-positions to 0, then set the stroked-frames X- and Y-Positions both to 1.
- Group the two frames. The group will now aligned with its outer border to guide-lines etc. The frame with no stroke can be send to back.
