[Scribus] Tabs with dotted lines, mail-merge

Craig, it works great! After some initial stupidity on my part (not
setting the output path), it works like a charm. Now my only question
is: How do I print all the individual documents that the script
generated at once (as one job)? Can I modify the script to merge each
record to a new page within the same document?

Regards, Dylan.
