[scribus] skewed text frame & text distances

Hi everybody,

I am creating a leaflet with skewed text frames -- the verticals are all 
rotated by 10°. I would like to flow text into those frames keeping 5mm 
clearance on both sides. I tried to set paragraph leftskip/rightskip, 
but it seems to be effective relative to the text area bounding box, not 
the actual shape on that line; the same happens with Text/Columns&Text 
Distances (as suggested in 
where a thin line appears in that distance from the bbox vertical, 
again, not skewed.

Is this something expected? For me definitely counter-intuitive. Is 
there some workaround? I could move text frame nodes by those 5mm, but 
it is a bit tedious in the absence of rotated guides.

Thanks for suggestions, cheers!
