Beginner Talk / Re: Set/display percentages in rulers
« Last post by Edradour on May 24, 2018, 08:04:19 pm »
Thanks
"fyi, in scribus you can set the measurement in percents, which is very handy from time to time... or use guide columns (which is often a very useful feature!)"

I think that's what I intended asking for, how to set measuments in percentages.  It is something I often did in InDesign, reading the percentages from the rulers to measure where to set my guides.

(e.g. full page height = 100%, full page width = 100% - but they are not necessarily equal in fixed length measurments (mm, inch, pixel &c))

In scribus you can use the tabulators in the same way as you do in other programs.

I would do that, by creating a paragraph style (edit > style manager) and define a tabulator with dots in there...

hi edradour

i think, i've already seen your question somewhere else but i cannot recall where... and if i replied to it.

basically: i don't think that your wish makes sense.

can you explain us why you would do that?

fyi, in scribus you can set the measurement in percents, which is very handy from time to time... or use guide columns (which is often a very useful feature!)

Beginner Talk / Set/display percentages in rulers

Hello
Is there any way to show percentages of page size in the rulers?
Personally, I find it easier to relate to a page width of 100% rather than (say) 280.63 pt or 99 millimeter.

Text and Typography / Making a list of Items with Prices

Specifically the items would be left-aligned and the prices would be right-aligned and the dots between them would be filled in automatically. I could have sworn there was a program that did that, but I'm not sure how to do that with Scribus

I think the wiki has a page with resources, I learned much terminology from books at the library (and books bought at sales).

Googling "graphic design terminology" gave me this page, which contains the term "imposition".

On prepressure.com I know I've read a lot of good information, theres a dictionary there too.

Prepressure.com even has a full page about impositioning.

PDF Generation / Re: PDF not PDF X/1-a

I’ve gotten this warning when trying to upload to DriveThruRPG. For me, opening the PDF in Adobe Acrobat and just saving it with Acrobat solved it. If that doesn’t work, saving as an optimized pdf (make sure you select ‘retain existing pdf version’ and unselect things you don’t want the optimization process to do) fixed it.

Raster and Vector Graphics / Re: Underexposed image regions are marked green

I saved all my images used in the content as CMYK but then, that's what the printers demanded anyway. It made the 'out of gamut' highlighting go away, which was nice.

Text and Typography / Re: Linking Render Frames
« Last post by eudoxos on May 22, 2018, 03:45:14 pm »
Hi Florian,

it is not directly possible, but you can use a workaround... I just used it. One problem to watch for is that the pseudo-linked frames (which will display pages of the LaTeX document) must have exactly the same size. Of course direct support for this in scribus would be excellent, but... you know. Do like this:

Create same-sized render frames (anywhere in the scribus doc) with the following content for the render code:

Code: [Select]
\def\scrPageNumber{1} % change to 2, 3, ... in every render frame
\def\scrPaperWd{$scribus_width_inch$in}
\def\scrPaperHt{$scribus_heigh_inch$in}
% you have to use absolute path (latex is run in a temp dir), see https://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=15332
\input /absolute/path/to/document/latex-content.tex

Create latex-content.tex (call it whatever is suitable) like this (it will be included after \scrPageNumber, \scrPageHt, \scrPageWd will have been defined by each frame)
Code: [Select]
\documentclass[...]{article}
% PAPER SIZE: set same as the render frame, leave 1mm on each side for protrusion, see https://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=14873
\usepackage[margin=1mm,papersize={\scrPaperWd,\drPaperHt}{geometry}
% PAGE SELECTION: output one page per frame only!!!
\usepackage[\scrPageNumber]{pagesel}
\usepackage{atbegshi} % avoid warning from atbegshi, include after pagesel: https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/219255/atbegshi-warnings-printed-as-part-of-output
%% COLORS: if you use colored text, make sure to include luacolor (and run w/ lualatex) otherwise you end up with bad color on pages after the first page
%% see https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/431090/how-to-discard-pages-from-pdf-output-without-affecting-text-color
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{luacolor}
% FONT AND OTHER PACKAGES
\usepackage{fontspec}
\setmainfont[...]{...}

% DOCUMENT BODY

\begin{document}
   \color[cmyk]{.4,0,0,.6}
   your text here
   which can span several pages
   where each page goes to its respective
   render frame
\end{document}

Now if you want to test your document outside of scribus, create another main file, like latex-main.tex:
Code: [Select]
\def\scrPageNumber{-} % output all pages
% use some values for testing
\def\scrPaperWd{48mm}
\def\scrPaperHt{151mm}
\input latex-content.tex

FYI

It works with the new Scribus (1.5.4.)
