Import IDML files into Scribus 1.4.5
« on: October 13, 2015, 12:20:07 am »
Hello
I am testing Scribus 1.4.5 on a mac on 32bit. I am trying to import a Indesign CS5 mac IDML file but I get an error even for the most simple files. There seem to be no recent topics on the subject. Is it possible?
Thank you

Kunda

Try Scribus v1.5 (http://www.scribus.net/downloads/unstable-branch/)
and higher 1.5.1svn https://github.com/scribusproject/homebrew-scribus
These are not for production and are considerd unstable but people are using them in production environments nonetheless.
Anything you import in to 1.5.x is not backward compatible.

Thank you for the reply. I presume that 1.5 is only 64bit as none of the versions install onto my 32bit computer.
