Summary0008732: Add two more buttons in the Guides Manager (Apply to Even Pages" and "Apply to Odd Pages")
DescriptionIt would be helpful to have two more buttoms in the Guides Manager (Page -> Manage Guides) Column/Row tab. So far there is a buttom "Apply to All Pages", i think it would be really helpful to have add one buttom "Apply to Even Pages" and another "Apply to Odd Pages".

EDIT: This could be a possible way to solve the Master Page mirroring issue ? (0002646)
EDIT2: Added relationship to 0002646

again a -1 from me

i'm really not sure that this is indeed a good idea.

and what are you going to do with three fold documents? three buttons? (left, middle, right?)

master pages (or scripting) are made for this...

well.. lets not throw the idea out all together. There may be a way. Maybe when switching beyond a double layout Scribus throw a warning? Either way, there, IMHO, needs to be a smart UX here that guides the user to what they are trying to achieve.

I made a quick test following the idea proposed by ale.
If you add Guides to your master pages (for example: left and right) you will get the needed result without needing specific buttons in Guides Manager.
The 2 proposed buttons might create a mess with 3-Fold and 4-Fold as well.
