Title: No Text and Weird Dotted Lines in PDF
Post by: randykorn on November 04, 2017, 08:46:29 pm
Hi!
I'm new to Scribus, and I'm working on a document that needs to be sent out in a few days.  However, when I tried exporting it as a PDF, odd dotted lines appeared around my colored shapes, and my text disappeared.  I've created a smaller sample document, and the same problems persist there.  I've also done a test print of the smaller document, and it prints as it looks - weird dotted lines and no text.  I can't tell if this is a problem with my computer (I'm using a mac), or with the process of exporting.

I've attached both the .sla and .pdf files for the sample document.  Thanks!

hi randykorn

select one of the affected items, go to 'properties' (f2) → 'colors' → 'stroke' and select 'none' instead of 'black' and the problem should be gone.
(unfortunately you have to do it for every element separately…)
