Disappearing Text/text boxes
« on: December 09, 2017, 01:00:55 am »
Hi, I am trying to print something. In the document, all the text is present---untilI I print preview it. The preview shows that no text is on the right half of the page, and text is not present from about 1/4 of the way down to the bottom of the page. All images are present.

I've checked and fixed the preflight issues---except 1. One of my images does not fit on the page 100%. In PageMaker, I could just "cut off" the area I didn't want to be printed, but Scribus doesn't appear to let me do anything but hide what I don't want to be printed.

Can you help me know how to fix this situation?  ??? (TIA)

Did you try to export to a PDF to see how it looks? (I personally almost never use the pre-view in Scribus.)

No. I never even thought of that; I just did the preview (below "print"). I never even realized that it possibly WOULD show even though it looked like it. What program would I need to view it anyway? I'll check that out the next time the text disappears (which has happened a few times).
