This article is part of the Scripts series.

Here is another border, pretty useless but at least I am learnt a bit about Python - the 'for' loops need their following lines to be indented. Also helps to understand the x and y co-ordinates of Scribus

Introduces: CreateLine SetLineWidth SetLineColor and Python for loops.
