Thread below paragraph
« on: April 11, 2018, 07:49:35 am »
Hello friends
I've been using PageMaker for some time now, and I'm transitioning to Scribus, but I'm having a pretty hard time. In the diagramming that I work on the pagemaker I use the "Wire Below Paragraph" feature, which you can check in the attached image, but I am not finding this option in Scribus, I am using the latest version 1.5.3. Help me please!!!

ale: you've asked the question in two languages. i've removed the portuguese version of your question... so that we have only one thread with your question...

if i understand you correctly, you want to add a line below your paragraph.

if this is what you want to achieve, scribus cannot do it yet.

you can manually draw a line, of course...

Depending on your needs, what's here,2362.0.html might be useful, but keep in mind that they're all tricks (or hacks, if you prefer) and may not produce good results.
You could also try making a repetition of line-shape glyphs - see attached SLA - but that's awkward to get right and probably not advisable for professional documents. (There's a mini-tutorial about this somewhere on this forum but I couldn't find it.)
