Is it possible to give an offset to page grid in Scribus?

Is it possible to offset the page grid in Scribus?

My page layout has the following settings:

Margins = 1.5 cm (top, left, right, bottom)
Page Grid = Main spacing 5.0 cm, Secondary spacing 0.5 cm.

I’d like to offset the Page Grid so that the Main spacing has its origins on the margin of the printable area (the blue line in the picture), instead of the whole page area (the red line).

Is it possible to do so? And how?

No, it’s not possible.

But, in most cases, the grid is not the best way to align and distribute frames in Scribus.
(The grid is much more useful when you’re doing vector graphics than in DTP.)

For layout uses, you’d better go for a typographic grid ( You can create a basic one through the “Page > Manage Guides…” dialog, in the “Column / Row” tab.
You will have to play with the number of horizontal and vertical guides, with the gap (you need it!). You will also need to set the “Refer to” value to Margins.
You will probably also want to create the tyophgraphic grid on a Master page.
