How to add a fold mark at center of each PDF?

Hi,

I'm trying to change the default layout for the printed reports. I'm using DIN-A4 paper format.
I want to add marks for the punch holes and where to fold for envelopes.
These marks are usually within the left margin and one is exactly in the vertical center. The other one has a certain distance from the top of the page. There is also a standard for these marks.

I tried changing the external_layout_standard XML and added an element like this:

<div style="position: absolute; top: 148.5mm; left: -10mm; width: 10mm; height: 1px; border-top: 1px solid black;"></div>

The position however is not correct, even if I subtract the given top margin in the paper format dialog.
Also it is not possible to move the line into the left margin area.

How would be the correct way of doing something like this?.

Regards,
Stephan
