Hi Greg

This sounds very promising indeed and I think could cure the problem I 
brought up!!

I've never used scripts so would need a basic 'How to' if you don't 
mind. My only comment would be to know if it's possible to make the 
script work from the page you start it on right to the end of the document?

I also think that incorporating this into Scribus itself would be a very 
worth while exercise indeed..
Maybe as "Apply Master Page with adjustment"

Very many thanks
