I cannot open a new document, never mind my project
« on: January 03, 2015, 04:30:02 am »
I am using a Mac Book Pro OSx 10.9.5  Mavericks and I am trying to open a new document and the active page doesn't show up. I can see only the top menu bar but not the toolbar. I haven't been using Scribus in a while and  I am totally baffled by the fact that everything worked fine several weeks ago and now I cannot even open a new document, never mind my own project.

Any ideas on how to get the toolbar and the active page to show up on the screen?

cheers and Happy New Year!

hi soakedlontra

if you miss the whole main window (not only the toolbars), then you should:
  • close scribus
  • open the file: '[your user name]/library/preferences/scribus/scribus140.rc' in a text editor.
  • search for a line beginning with: <MAINWINDOW WIDTH="
  • change the position values to something like: YPOS="25" XPOS="25"
when you restart scribus, the main window should pop up somewhere near the upper left corner of your screen.
