Cannot show guides and margins on top
« on: July 03, 2017, 02:04:14 pm »
Hi!

I have set Guides to be in the foreground in the preferences, but they are still in the background!

See attached screen print. What is going wrong?

Using Ubuntu 16.04 64 bits and Scribus 1.4.6

Thanks in advance!!

The "Preferences" are for future documents, you need "Document Setup" to change it for the current document.
It's a bit weird but you get used to it after a while.

In a way it makes sense as it also applies to color profiles.

But it is indeed something someone has to get used to

Thanks for the quick reply!!

You're welcome.

It's also worth noting that there are some things that are only available in Preferences - especially when no documents are open - but I can't remember them off the top of my head. Shouldn't be too difficult to find out if you're particularly curious.
