Title: See margins through objects and layers
Post by: Falsedog on October 11, 2020, 09:09:17 pm
New to Scribbus - beofre I get going with the design itself I would like to solve an issue with the margins. I'm working to a carton template and adding a black background immediately hides the guide lines. I found someone had addressed the problem in the 'bugs' channel:

https://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=13421

Where the means to adjust the settings are found in Preferences > Guides but having visited there and tinkered with a few settings, i still can't quite see how to adjust the margins to 'shine' through the layers I put on top of them.

Any help appreciated!

hi falsedog

there are two settings to be considered:
as with most settings in scribus, 'document setup' will affect the actual file while the same settings in 'preferences' change the behaviour of scribus for all the files you create later.
