line under text
« on: June 02, 2015, 05:30:17 pm »
Great community here :)
Quick question for a layout I'm doing (well copying  ;) - it's a book work has had translated into Spanish. I'm basing the layout I'm doing on the original English one, but the original was done in Quark.) The original had lines running across the page under certain things (like author names and some headers), like under the authors name in the image I've attached. Any ideas on how I can do this as a style?
Ta :)

In Scribus you cannot define paragraph borders.

Here a workaround for adding horizontal lines: define a right aligned tabulator with the "underscore" as the fill character. 
You should define it in a new style that you will apply to the paragraph following the one that should get a bottom line.
