PDF Generation / Re: "Use Color Profiles" options in PDF export
« Last post by lcooper on Today at 03:22:10 pm »
Hi,

Did you find an answer to your question?

I am trying to create a PDF/X-4 with a coated ICC and all the images in CMYK but I can't seem to get the images to be created in CMYK, they are always in RGB (the printing company are telling me this). I am using Scribus 1.5.4 downloaded a week or so ago.

Any help please on which options I should use?

Windows / Re: User Interface Scaling
« Last post by a.l.e on Today at 10:13:35 am »
if you're using Scribus 1.4.x i fear that there will never be any support for hdpi monitors. (i don't even think Qt4 has support for it)
but it should be possible to manually scale it and nothing will interfere with your efforts to get a usable state.

for Scribus 1.5.x the support is a work in progress.
currently, i have the feeling that the scaling now works rather well... but there is no way to have a smaller interface...
it's not as nice as it could be, but it's definitively usable!

if you want an frame to fill a page, just shift+click (instead of simply clicking) when creating it and it will occupy the whole space around the cursor, up to the first guide or margin.

if you want to extend an existing frame to the right margin, just activate the snapping to guides (it should (almost) always be on... of cours) and pull it there.

if you want to regularly create frames that fills half of the page, you should of course put a column guide (see the guides manager)...
and if it's only about one single frame, you can use the shift-click to fill the page and then change the width of the frame to be "50%" or "width/2".
and if you want a 1 cm gutter in the middle, set it to "width / 2 - .5cm".

Windows / User Interface Scaling
« Last post by jasterisk on Today at 06:24:46 am »
Hello,

I'm trying to use Scribus on a Microsoft Surface Book, which has a resolution of 3000 x 2000. Because of this, in order for the device to even be usable, Windows upscales everything (the OS and all of my programs) by 200%. The only issue though is that the 200% scale that is defined in my Windows settings doesn't affect Scribus, which means that Scribus' user interface is almost unreadable and pretty much unusable.

Is there any way to scale up the user interface within Scribus?

Thanks!

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!)

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
« Last post by TheBladeRoden on May 24, 2018, 11:20:57 am »
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".
http://www.ucreative.com/resources/design-terms/

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.
