Leader Dots and Indesign Package Feature
« on: February 10, 2019, 08:08:59 pm »
Two questions in one, sorry guys!

So I read this forum post ( http://forums.scribus.net/index.php?topic=2737.0 ) in regards to creating leader dots. I followed the steps, but when I get to the Tabulators pop-up, I don't understand how I'm supposed to use it. How would I apply Leader Dots to this, for example:

" Peter Prescott . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Brother of the Groom "

----

My second question. On InDesign there is a Package feature, which allows you to retrieve all resources (such as text, images, etc) individually and place them into one centralized folder. Does Scribus have anything like this?

Thank you again for your time!

For the second part: "file > collect for output"

Just select a Fill char. See https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Help:Manual_Textframes#Tabulators
