Well I recently bought a book on Python but
haven't had time to master the language. Also
I will need to examine some Scribus python scripts
to see how things are done in that mode, including
how I would alter page dimensions and put vertical
guides on the document. After I finish a big
current customer job (not yet started) I will give
it a try.
