Scribus 1.4.0 RC3 and the default colors
« on: April 12, 2011, 05:17:58 pm »
Hi all,

I remember Scribus having a LOT of colors predefined in the 1.3.x aera. I am now using 1.4.0 RC3 (because Suse 11.4 delivered RC1 which was quite buggy and I wanted to stay within that release now) and I only have like 5-8 colors defined in the color menu. I am not too willing to define another 100 by myself and the question is: Will the final release bring all the colors again? What is the current schedule for 1.4.0 final?
And: Is there a way to move over the old color definitions from somewhere? Which file is required? Does someone know how to provide this file?

Kind regards,
Martin

1. Start Scribus
2. Do NOT open a new document
3. Go to Edit Colors
4. Change "The current color set"

is that what you are looking for?

1. Start Scribus and set colors.
2. Create a new document and save it.
3. Import colors from this newly created document to your document.

OK, Thank you. I'l be giving it a try.
Is there a chapter in the manual describing that procedure? Is this done in the same dialog where I select the default pallette when no document is open?
Kind regards,
Martin

Yes, Edit > Colors > Import.
