would you mind to reveal us what you are trying to do?

if you just want export to a file an image that was embedded into the .sla, well, just right click on the image and deactivate the embedding... you will be prompted for a name to save it.

Installation and Setup / Scribus 1.5.3 appimage - some issues
« Last post by asoftwareuser794 on Today at 07:19:30 am »
I'm running Linux Mint 17.3/KDE.  Scribus is at version 1.4.3.  However when I would load a one or two page PDF sent to me (vendor estimate), some of the text overflowed outside the text box. There were other formatting strangeness. When I saved the PDF, this strangeness was saved.

I installed the 1.5.3 appimage following the link here: https://www.scribus.net/downloads/unstable-branch/.

It loaded the same pdf document correctly. All good there.

Since I found Scribus, I wanted to try it out and I ran into a few things.

1. When I type scribus --version for 1.5.3. I get the same type of info as 1.4.3, by after it lists the version I get:
Scribus Crash
-------------
Scribus crashes due to Signal #11
Segmentation fault

2. I cannot open a pdf file like: scribus FILE.pdf without getting a Segmentation Fault. I can only open a pdf file via the dialog that is displayed after the splash screen and click the tab "Open Existing Document".

3. I cannot open large pdf documents. The progress bar sits at 66% and my machine grinds to a halt.

4. Last, I wanted to print  https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Knowing_Knoppix/Print_version to a PDF. In firefox, I select File -> Print and selected the PDF Cups printer.   I only printed 5 pages, because of the above problem (large pdfs). If I view the document with okular, it looks okay, but if I open the pdf with scribus 1.5.3 the fields on pages 2-5 are black. The PDF-Import dialog shows the file correctly. I even clicked the arrow to check each page, but when I hit OK....wait (the progress bar really liked 66%), only the first page is correct. The remaining 4 pages, every field is black.

I definitely feel 1.5.3 runs better.  Any thoughts, especially on #4.

Thank you.

PDF Generation / Re: Limiting ink coverage in pdf 1.5 export
« Last post by utnik on Today at 07:12:05 am »
hi agnisapaksa

as i anderstand it, exporting to 'iso coated v2' should limit the coverage to 330%. but i've never controlled it, as i never use cmyk colors with more than 300% in the first place – so i need to check this some time…

Hi Utnik,

Thanks a lot for answering this!

I am exporting in Printer mode, checking the box "use profile colors" under "images" , with Color management activated (and the iCC Iso coated set for CMYK and printer). 

The attachment is in Italian, sorry for that....

Can there be anything else that escaped my attention? I can't really think of anything...
Is there any other way to limit the ink coverage manually? 

Thanks a lot!

I copied what appears to be the Base64 portion out of the sla file and I used certutil in Windows to decode.  certutil states the command completed successfully.  However, when I try to open the file in different programs, the programs report the file has errors, is corrupted or damaged.

If it wasn't Base64, my guess is certutil would result in an error, which I have encountered in the past.

I can open the sla file without any problem in Scribus and the image is shown.  Image Info displays the image as Embedded.

Any ideas?  Thank you.

hi agnisapaksa

Is there a way to limit ink coverage to 340% when exporting to pdf 1.5?

…I was convinced that applying the ICC profile they sent me (ISO coated v2) it would automatically do so. Unfortunately it did not.

yes, it does ('iso coated v2' reduces the ink coverage to 330%) but you need to export your .pdf file for 'printer' – and the color management must be activated…

Hello,

Is there a way to limit ink coverage to 340% when exporting to pdf 1.5?
The Typography that is supposed to print my files has set this limit.
 I was convinced that applying the ICC profile they sent me (ISO coated v2) it would automatically do so. Unfortunately it did not.
 I installed a newer release of scribus 1.4.6, hoping to have the "total inc coverage" indication in the preflight window, but it is the same as my old version (1.4.1 - i kept them both, hope it's not a problem) and does not have that option.

Is there a way to manually reduce CMYK ink coverage before creating a pdf?

Thanks a lot.

Linux / UI oversized and unusable
« Last post by NickJOB on June 24, 2017, 06:13:35 pm »
Hello,

I have Scribus NG installed from the PPA (Scribus 1.5.3 on Ubuntu 16.10). I had been using version 1.5.2 without a problem, but now that it has upgraded to 1.5.3 the UI is scaled up so that it is very big, very pixelated and unusable. This happened previously when I tried to install the trunk version as well. Is there something that I can do to fix this?

Many thanks,

Nick

Windows / Re: Scribus can't find Ghostscript
« Last post by GarryP on June 24, 2017, 02:56:07 pm »
Welcome to the forum Drew.

Odd one that. Are you pointing Scribus to the gswin32.exe instead of the required gswin32c.exe?
Just as a check, mine is pointing to: C:\Program Files\gs\gs9.18\bin\gswin64c.exe (for 64-bit rather than 32-bit)

Windows / Scribus can't find Ghostscript
« Last post by Drew on June 24, 2017, 02:15:42 am »
I installed Scribus Version 1.4.6
03 January 2016
Build ID: C-*-T-*-C1.8.6-Windows
Windows Vista Home 32

I then downloaded and installed Ghostscript.
When I start Scribus I get an error message that Ghostscript is not installed on my system.
Went to File>Preferences>External Tools and set the correct path to Ghostscript using the change button.
Still getting the error message.
Any ideas?
