Linking Render Frames
« on: March 30, 2018, 01:10:42 pm »
Hi together,
is it possible to link render frames as you would link normal text frames? It would be great to design the pages of a magazine with Scribus but to use the typesetting capability of LaTex. But as I see it, I would have to divide the source code of a two ore more page article into multiple render frames.
All the best,

hi florian

the render frames are not only for latex... and not all the "formats" supported are compatible with linking.

but in the case of the latex frames i agree that it could be possible to make them linked... but there is some work to be done!
it's not much and i'm sure that -- if you're a latex user -- you could do some if not almost all of the work necessary for it!

sadly, i'm not sure that it is a future proof solution*.
so, i'm not sure that slightly enhancing them by adding the linking is a good idea...


* as far as i know, render frames are just image frames and are included as the original pdf when you enable the "experimental" pdf-embedding: but, then, you lose all the color management on that part of the pdf.
