Beginner Talk / Adding Pages
« Last post by LesCM19 on February 20, 2018, 10:32:29 am »
I need to insert some single pages here and there. I was hoping not to have to do this as the last time I did this I had to add two pages or the L & R pages got fouled up...or am I doing something wrong?

Beginner Talk / Re: Is there a way to move objects without snapping?
« Last post by GarryP on February 20, 2018, 10:06:42 am »
Turning the two snapping options off - both grid and guides - as suggested by tosca above should turn snapping off completely as they are the only snapping options that Scribus has (in 1.4.6, I don't know about 1.5.x). Without those two options set you should be able to drag things by the pixel.

Can you describe the problem you're having in a bit more detail please? Particularly, which operating system type/version, which Scribus version and where you got Scribus from. If you can give a short work-flow that always produces the reported effect then other people can try it for themselves. A short video of the problem would help too if you can post one.

hi kanjigirl

did you check which fonts are really embedded in the .pdf file? (in acrobat reader: 'ctrl' + 'd') – could be interesting…

some of my fonts with a straight 'l' and without embedding problems are:
  • cantarell
  • catamaran
  • fira sans
  • lato
  • liberation sans
the mjority of my font embedding problems i had with microsoft standard fonts (which i never use with my own files…)

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, you can use the cursor keys, alone or with ctrl or shift to, move objects around.

PDF Generation / Re: Over Ink Coverage Issue [SOLVED]

hi farland

…set Scribus to use US Webcoated SWAP 2…

…it shows all of the images as over 240 in ink coverage.

i don't know this profile, but it looks as it would limit the color coverage to something around 300%.
either you don't use colors with higher coverages than your printer can deal with, or you should use an icc profile which has the same low limit…

utnik

Thanks for the reply.  That was it-- the webcoated swop 2 made the ink limit 300. I googled and found a web coated swop 2 240 limit icc profile, installed that, and set scribus to use that profile.  It worked.

Text and Typography / New user, help with bold L's in PDF, not outlining fonts
« Last post by kanjigirl on February 20, 2018, 02:10:07 am »
This is the first time posting here and the first time creating a PDF form. I made a big form, I used the TT fonts Fjalla One and Roboto (regular and medium) for the fonts.

I used the print functionality for Nitro Pro, my PDF editor, to export to PDF. Everything looks great in Nitro, but in Acrobat (DC or Reader) the lower case l's are all ridiculously bold. I understand from my reading that this happens when fonts are outlined instead of embedded and that some fonts can't be embedded. I set all three to embed and not subset in Scribus fonts settings, and set them to embed in the Nitro dialog. Same results.

I also tried using the Scribus PDF exporter with all fonts embedded, same results.

Then I tried changing out fonts. Fjalla looks perfect, so I kept that, but I switched out Roboto for both Open Sans then Arial. Exact same results - I ticked the box to embed all fonts in both Nitro and Scribus PDF export, the lowercase L's are still extra bold and wide.

I don't know what to do now - what font or setting do I have to use to get this to look right when viewed online? They look bad (but not as bad as Acrobat) in Chrome's PDF viewer too.  :(

Thank you, Tosca...these items were already un-checked. So, this is the best it can be?

See the last two lines of the Page menu. In french, they are "Grille magnétique" (Magnetic grid?) and "Repères magnétiques" (whatever...) You need to uncheck both if you want no magnetism at all.

Beginner Talk / Is there a way to move objects without snapping?
« Last post by inkuser on February 19, 2018, 08:56:26 pm »
I don't see any snap-to ____ controls in Scribus, but objects seem to be behaving as though snap is on; in other words, I don't have fine control over where I move objects.

Is there a way other than the Properties bar to gain fine control over the positioning of objects?

Thank you!
