Creating lined writing paper using GLE

First steps

My journey began when I was searching for a way to produce some lined paper, with a very particular layout, that my girlfriend could use to practice her calligraphy skills. Initially, I investigated some graphical applications with the usual point-and-click interfaces such as GIMP, Scribus and Inkscape. As excellent as all these applications are I found it was tedious using them to create a precise, repetitive layout that was likely to need refining many times. A typical problem is: realising that you made a mistake when drawing line 1 when you are already on line 44 and all previous lines now need to be shifted.
