Beginner Talk / Re: Linking text frames redux
« Last post by a.l.e on Today at 07:58:27 pm »
personally, i never had big issues with the chaining of text frames...

but, as i wrote, i've never used the automatic frames.
i've even made a proposal for removing them... and implemented myself a patch to make it easy to achieve the same result, by duplicating a (group of) frame(s) on multiple pages (and getting them automatically chained).

... the patch is still waiting for being commented and or approved...
still, if you don't really needed it, don't use the automatic text frames...

Your suggestion that I fool around with empty text frames to get a 'feel' for linking and unlinking is a good one, and I'll certainly give it a try. A pity this one element as such a bother; the rest of the programme is pretty intuitive. Thanks.
Text and Typography / Re: Primarily configure Bangla / Bengali texts
« Last post by a.l.e on Today at 05:30:02 pm »

you need two think:

- scribus 1.5.4+ (the development version... how to get it, depends on your computer)
- a  font with the needed glyphs.

then, it should just work...

I learnt from a post ( by muhammodmasum that "Now Bengali text is working ok" in Scribus.

That is a great news for someone like me, a newbie.

But, as a newbie I don't find how to primarily configure Bangla / Bengali texts in Scribus.

Someone please help me in this regard.

Thank you.

i don't know how long your document is and how long your text frames chains are... but as long as you're not 100% comfortable with the way scribus works, i would not suggest you to use the automatic linked text frames.

it looks handy for filling lot of pages but, as you have already noticed it easily gets hard to use, when you want to do things that are in a different flow...

a suggestion: create a new document and and a few text frames, chain them unchain them... test a bit how the chaining tool does work.
in that way, without the extra care you have to put in, when editing your production document, you should easily get the needed skills.

I wrote earlier about problems I was having linking text frames. Since I'd created a document -- a novel -- I needed to separate the chapters within the document, and I was getting errors saying, to the effect, that I was trying to link a frame that was already linked. It was suggested that unlinking frames would be the best solution, and it worked -- once. Now I can't seem to do it. In the attached image I need to sever the connection between 'A' and 'B' but for some reason I am unable to figure out the sequence. Do I select 'B', hit the unlink button and then hit 'A', or vice versa? It's driving me nuts. Neither seems to work. I might add that When setting up the document, I elect to automatically insert text frames.

if you can start scribus from a terminal, you might be able to see some messages.

which version are you trying?

Scribus stops to react on the startup and slowly a while later crashes/closes itself on my Mac. Any assistance folks?

General Discussion / Frequency of svn builds

I reported a bug yesterday and within hours it had been fixed :-) The response says 'Fixed in Version 1.5.5.svn'.
How often are svn builds done? When should I expect to see a new Windows build? Currently the latest files that I see on SourceForge under scribus-svn/1.5.5.svn are a Mac build from 2 days ago and Windows builds from a month ago.
Thank you.
User Interface / Re: Scaling group of shapes doesnt work?

If this happens in 1.4, you should probably accept it as a restriction related to the way groups are implemented there...

If it happens in 1.5, i'd be interested in knowing more about it...
can you share a sample .sla with instructions how to trigger the issue?
or show a screencast?
