Title: How to get the bleeds of a document
Post by: agricola on October 17, 2016, 01:15:29 pm
Hi everybody,

I want read out the bleeds of all sides of a document by means of scripting.
Let's say, I'm searching for a scribus-function like "getPageBleeds(...)" or something like that, knowing, that there is a function "getPageMargins(...)",
returning the 4 margins (but not the bleeds!) actually beeing applied to a page.

Many thanks for your help as well as for any ideas for a workaround!

hi agricola

if it's not there you can add it...

adding new commands to the scripter is not that hard... if you have basic python/c++ skills...

ciao

Which operating system are you using?

I found the following with a quick google search for Linux:

The question was not for cropping, but reading the information from a script. Most likely to use in some calculation.
