<p>Although labeled <strong>Guides</strong>, there are many other settings here, mostly related. Guides can either show above or below your content. <strong>Snapping: Snap Distance</strong> applies when <em>Page > Snap to Guides</em> or <em>Page > Snap to Grid</em> has been selected. <strong>Grab Radius</strong> has to do with the size of the virtual space for grabbing and dragging a frame's handles. As the tooltips indicate, you must shut down and restart Scribus for these to take effect when they are changed.
This panel sets the default distances and colors, as well as the snap to settings. <strong>Baseline Grids</strong> is the set of horizontal guides which forces text in multiple columns to align horizontally, as shown below. Settings for the distances for baselines are in Paragraph Styles, as well as the next panel <strong>Typography</strong></p>

<table width="80%"><tr><td valign="top">By default, Guides and Margins will show, but can be changed here, along with the color of each. Major and Minor Grids do not show by default &ndash; here we have changed the default colors so you can easily see the difference in the screenshot to the right, with page edges shown in red, margins in blue, major grid light green, and minor grid in light magenta.
<p>Finally, at the bottom of the dialog we can choose to show the Baseline Grid by default, and adjust its default settings.

<h3><a name="4"></a>Typography</h3>
<p>Here are the default settings for various typographic features &ndash; subscript, superscript, automatic line spacing and scaling of small capitals.
<p>In addition, the amount of automatic linespacing can be adjusted relative to the size of the font. <em>Note that the 20% is in addition to the space required for the next line of text, so that the total space from one baseline to the next would be 120% of the font size.</em>

<h3><a name="8"></a>Preflight Verifier</h3>
Preflight verification (checking for errors) is automatic when exporting to PDF, and also can be chosen separately from the toolbar. Here are the default settings for various items you wish to have checked. You would be ill-advised to check <em>Ignore all errors</em> &ndash; an error discovered after commercial printing could prove to be costly.

<tr><td>New to 1.3.5+ versions is the inclusion of the ability to create bleeds, crop marks, and other printer marks as you export to PDF. Any bleed width is added to the page dimensions you selected when you created your document.
<p>Note here an example of what you see when you do not have ICC profiles installed &ndash; <strong>PDF/X-3 Output Intent</strong> is not available.</td></tr>

<p>Here you see the various default keyboard shortcuts, which are editable, and many others can be assigned. These are stored in the <tt>.scribus/scribus135.rc</tt> file. Moreover, once customized, you can export them into a separate XML file which can be exported and saved separately, along with making it portable to other machines. The default file suffix is .ksxml. The XML is a unicode file and should not have issues being transported across platforms, with the only caveat that Macs have an option and command meta key, where Linux and Windows share common keyboards.</p>

<h3><a name="14"></a>Display (not all of these available in Document Settings)</h3>
<p>Most of these are pretty straightforward. Depending on the size of your screen, you can use this to adjust the rescale and rearrange your workspace. If you have plenty of space, you may want to adjust the display to accurately reflect your document size by default. Remember, you can adjust the magnification settings in <em>Tools > Zoom</em>.</p>

<p>The Colors tab allows for customization of the colors used for various screen features, such as marking the margins, grids, and guides. In Document Settings only Fill Color is available. It's also worth mentioning here that the Fill Color only has to do with the <em>appearance</em> of the document background and is not printed or exported to PDF.
