Is it possible to print guides?
I am making a calligraphy worksheet and found that the option to custom define guides (for example, I define 52 lines within margins) is very practical for me. I would like this guides to be printed, without me needing to draw lines over each one. Is it possible?


Draw one horizontal line, set the options (length, position, line size -> thickness)
Keep the line selected or select it
Menu -> Item -> Duplicate/Transform -> Multiple Duplicate
Dialog opens
Insert number of lines you want
Insert vertical spacing (gaps)
If you want an even distribution, drag the bottom line to the margin of your page
Select all (cmd+a)
Menu -> Align and Distribute
Dialog opens
Select »Distribute« Tab
Select »Make vertical gaps between items and the top and bottom page margins equal«

Thanks @toyotadesigner !
This is the solution. We can´t make scribus print the guides, but we can easily draw a line, multiply it and arrange it so we achieve the same purpose.

or you can use this script:

that's cool!
But I can't run scripts
It's a GUI thing...
If I click on the menu toolbar, some menus open on the other screen (Script menu opens on my second display so I can't hover over it, it disappears.)
Ok, I changed my configuration to only one display. Now I can use the menu, but If I click "About Script" or "Execute Script",
Scribus crashes.
