How to use CxF3 palettes?
« on: July 07, 2018, 08:00:51 pm »
According to https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/1.5.4_Release, Scribus can now handle CxF3 colour palettes.

But I can't get them to work. I exported palettes from PANTONE Color Manager in cxf format, but they don't appear in my list of available palettes when I put them in ~/.local/share/scribus/palettes/ (Scribus XML palettes placed here work fine). They don't appear when I put them in the main directory with all the palettes that ship with Scribus. And I can't import them from the Colors and Fills dialog (error is *.cxf does not contain colours which can be imported...).

Am I missing something?

The files exported from PANTONE Color Manager basically look like this (all except one colour removed for brevity):
