A request has come from AHB, which I paraphrase here. He was guillotining a page of decanter labels
, and wanted thin grey lines between them to guide his chopping.
I have two sources of reluctance, on which comment is invited.
• The decanter labels are spread over the decanter-label page, usually A4, to be as tightly packed as possible subject to a minimum size (DecanterLabelsMaxSmallerDimension
). But unless the page size is a fortuitous multiple of these minima in both dimensions, typically the decanter labels will be slightly further apart. This may well be further apart than the size of the business cards to the backs of which they are to be glued. So the correct place to guillotine depends on the size of the cards, not known at the time of making the PDF (and even if known, cards will typically be further apart).
• If I cut by hand, as is usual, I’m, unlikely to follow the grey lines precisely, and their remnants will be unsightly.
I could add a small grey line at the edge of the page, for those determined to guillotine precisely between. But I’m not sure that even this should be enabled by default.
