Sure, all set to use.
Use the Printers and settings tab.
Scroll down the right side ad find CUT MARKS.
Read the description by clicking the blue ball, and then select the one you want.

What Fred said.  Wink  I'll only add that in your case, you should probably try Crop Marks (which extend outward from each corner) and Mark Corners (which bracket each corner against each print).  Not sure which you'd prefer.

Add 0.5mm white borders + corner marks and cut just within the marks. That way you waste less paper and keep  marks on the printed image up to the last cut. Do not nest the images too close, cut becomes better with say at least a 2mm strip cut off.
Cutting marks that extend from the corner as used in the graphic industry have more sense when stacks of sheets are cut together on a guillotine cutter.

Thanks for the reply.

Looks like " guide borders " will work great.

I use these quite frequently. The only trouble is that when you make your first cut, you cut of the guides for the next (two) cuts. I don't think there is any way around this without having the guides on the cut print. I manage it by extending the mark in towards the print by a mm or two with a scalpel. So when I cut off the first edge, I can then see where to cut the next two from.

Mooi, hoef ik het niet in Klingon uit te leggen.
