This article is part of the Scripts series.

Haven't got this wiki thing psyched out yet, but here is a script to put an 8pt border 20 pts in on a A4 page. Modifyfying it gives all sorts of borders

from scribus import *

if NewDoc(Paper_A4, (10, 10, 10, 10), Portrait, 1, UNIT_POINTS, NoFacingPages, FirstPageRight):

       spx=20          # x co-ord Start point
       spy=20          # y co-ord Start point
       wth=595         # A4 width in points
       dph=842         # Depth of frame - adjust to suit
       a=8             # Line width
       b="Black"       # add other colors as required
       h = CreateRect(spx,spy,wth-2*spx,dph-2*spy)
       setCornerRadius(20, h)
       setLineWidth(8, h)
       setFillColor(w, h)
       setLineColor(b, h)

When I last tried setCornerRadius didn't work, but they'll sort that out eventually.

Here is another border, pretty useless but at least I am learnind abit about Python

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

a = 5 #line width b="Blue" m=33 #Fill shade, integer 0-100 g60="Grey60" spx=30 #Start X spy=30 #Start Y a4w=595 #Width A4 getPageSize ? a4d=842 #depth A4 getPageSize ?

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)

for i in range(0,int(770/10)): l = CreateRect(spx+5,spy+10+10*i,10,5) setFillShade(m,l) setLineColor(g60,l) for i in range(0,int(770/10)): k = CreateRect(a4w-45,spy+10+10*i,10,5) setFillShade(m,k) setLineColor(g60,k)
