Hello @MaxyBoo,

Not certain what is meant by '...along the side of a page'.

You can place hatch patterns on a page (Format->Page Properties... from menu - hatch on background tab) or a shape such as a rectangle (right click & select Area - hatch on Area tab`).

You can create different effects with these:

This last one uses page background. It appears there may be a bug with it since it won't save angles or multiple lines.

Upper left is a rectangle over entire page with a hatch & then a white rectangle (smaller in size) over that. Upper right is simply a rectangle on right side of page.

If this answers your question please tick the ✔ (upper left area of answer). It helps others to know there was an accepted answer.
