in scribus 1.4.2 it was possible to load .svg files in image frames ('files of type' → 'all files(*)
' in the 'open'
window…) in 1.4.3 this doesn't work any more.
i mentioned this as a bug and was told that it wasn't possible in any existing scribus version. as i recieved a .sla file produced in 1.4.2 on windows xp and wasn't able to display or export it correctly, i reinstalled 1.4.2 on mac os. with this version it worked – and i was able to load any other .svg file in an image frame and export it to .pdf.
even when i uploaded a file (see bug #11698
), instead of trying to open it in 1.4.2, one of the developers told me, that what i uploaded doesn't exist…
for me, this is a very strange behavior.
- if you receive .sla files with linked .svg files in a frames, you will be able to open them in scribus 1.4.2
- i you're still working with scribus 1.4.2, avo inserting .svg files in frames or be aware that this feature doesn't exist officially and expires with the next update!
