Text and Typography / Re: another Interesting Issue

Sorry, I can't read the SLA as it was created with 1.5.3 and I only use the stable version.
(The release notes for 1.5.2 say "The text layout engine has been rewritten from scratch" so this might be contributing to the issue but I don't know.)
Maybe someone who uses 1.5.3 can help.

Text and Typography / Re: Saves as PDF, Fonts to embed

Welcome to the forum MistrYpsilon.

You can either use the "Embed All" button or you can select a font on the left and use the right-arrow to tell Scribus you want to embed it.

Note that some fonts are not embeddable but the reasons for this can get quite technical ( http://forums.scribus.net/index.php/topic,2523.0.html ).

If Scribus won't put the font in the embed list then you generally just have to accept it.

Well, I certainly wouldn't have guessed I should be looking for "complex script functionality" to tell me if Scribus worked with a certain language.
At least this thread now has a link which might make it easier to find.

Without being able to look at the original document I would guess that this is something to do with how the text is formatted.

It looks like Scribus is drawing the dots using different fonts on different lines and, because different fonts/variants have different character widths, the dots have different widths.

Try changing the formatting of the frame as a whole - to "refresh" it to a standard format - and then re-formatting the characters of the text where necessary rather than the paragraphs. (You might lose the tabulator settings while doing this so make a note of them first just in case.)

Scribus has loads of little quirks when it comes to the details of certain functions and the tabulator isn't immune. It's usually just a case of knowing where these quirks lurk and working around them.

this is the document i was mentioning:

https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Complex_Script_Functionality

it's probably not up to date and it does not make much sense to mention how complex script languages work before 1.5.3,

i still don't find many references of chinese and japanese (which are not complex script languages...)... but if you go to the chinese section in

https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Made_with_Scribus

you'll find a pdf that has chinese text that (probably) go top down, right left... no idea if it was really done in scribus and how it has been done...

afaik, the biggeset issue with chinese is to get the input system to work well with scribus...



sadly, i cannot type or read any non latin language, so i cannot judge how well scribus works with them...

Welcome to the forum tamskinner.

I might not be understanding your predicament correctly but is there any reason why you can't just resize the PP dialog?

If you can say which OS you're using and which version of Scribus then someone might be able to give you more help.

If you can attach a screen-shot that would help with diagnosing the problem.

Installation and Setup / Properties dialogue

My properties dialogue box contents appear to have spread out! Previously I could use the drop downs and spinners in the box ok but now I have to scroll across to see them. If I want to see width without scroll, the dialogue box is a bout 1/3 of the width of the screen with masses of dead space!  I've had a dig a round and cant see this answered anywhere, sorry it's very basic!
