Problems importing PDF as image
« on: May 16, 2011, 01:11:13 pm »
Dear all,

I tried adding an image frame and import a PDF (different sizes and versions), but the image won't display, neither on the screen or in the published version. When I right click the frame and click on "information", it displays information about the .pdf, such as dimensions, filename etc, but when I try to export the document, I get "missing image".

Could this be a bug, or am I not doing it correctly?

I'm currently using 1.3.3.14 (Windows).

Could you try a newer version of Scribus, e.g. 1.4.0rc4? (But backup your files first, since saving them with 1.4.x makes 1.3.x unable to open them).

Also, just an idea, did you try putting PDF file directly on C:\ and try to load it from there?

Do you have Ghostscript installed and correctly found by Scribus?

Because as far as I know on screen preview of PDF is done using Ghostscript.
