Inserting new chapter
« on: August 02, 2019, 07:09:49 pm »
Instead of inserting my document into Scribus one chapter at a time, I imported the entire document into Scribus. But now I need to separate the chapters. How do I move a new chapter to a new page? Is using a hard return good enough, or will that mess things up when making it into a PDF later?

hi woman writer,

i would create one chain of linked text frames per chapter.
for practical reasons, but also because scribus does not perform that well with very long text flows.

on the other side, what you see is what you get in the pdf: if you get it right on screen, it will be the same on paper.
(or at least it should be that way... and if it's not it's probably a bug)
