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.

 from scribus import *
 Margins = (10, 10, 10, 10)
 if NewDoc(Paper_A4, Margins, Portrait, 1, Points, NoFacingPages, FirstPageRight):

   #some constants
   a = 5      #line width
   m=33      #Fill shade, integer 0-100
   spx=30      #Start X
   spy=30      #Start Y
   a4w=595             #Width A4 getPageSize ?
   a4d=842             #depth A4 getPageSize ?

   #Draw the lines
   d = CreateLine(spx-a/2,spy,a4w-30+a/2,spy) #Top
   setLineColor(g60, d)
   setLineWidth(a, d)
   e = CreateLine(spx,spy,spx,a4d-27)  #LH vertical
   setLineWidth(a, e)
   setLineColor(g60, e)
   f = CreateLine(a4w-30,spy,a4w-30,a4d-27)	#RH vertical
   setLineWidth(a, f)
   setLineColor(g60, f)
   g = CreateLine(spx-a/2,a4d-27,a4w-30+a/2,a4d-27)#Bottom
   setLineWidth(a, g)
   setLineColor(g60, g)

   #Draw the "holes"
   for i in range(0,int(770/10)):
    l = CreateRect(spx+5,spy+10+10*i,10,5)
   for i in range(0,int(770/10)):
    k = CreateRect(a4w-45,spy+10+10*i,10,5)
