Beginner Talk / Re: Automatic page numbering
« Last post by GarryP on January 18, 2018, 11:00:11 am »
I remembered that you're using WIndows 7 but I was writing with the understanding that most people who come to this thread will not necessarily have read your previous posts. Most people who come to the forum see the threads/posts out of chronological sequence so it's preferable to give them a reasonable amount of information as early as possible. (That's why I also gave Linux and Mac information.)

Can you confirm the procedure below please?

A. You create a text frame;
B. You double-click the text frame to invoke in-line editing;
C. You press the Ctrl key and keep it depressed;
D. You press the Alt key and keep both it and the Ctrl key depressed;
E. You press the Shift key and keep it and the previous two keys depressed;
F. You press the P key and then release all four keys;
G. When the keys have been released, the text "Ctrl+Alt+Shift+P" (without the quotes) is inserted into the text frame.

Is that what you are saying is happening, or is it something else? I just want to make sure we're both talking about the same thing.

if you try, you have to try the development version.

english, arabic and dari should work.
i think that chinese is should somehow work even in the stable version.

i don't know anything about tigrinya and amharic.

with a bit of luck, you could be able to achieve your goal.

if you're willing to try it out, please report here, what were the results.

I've never seen this happen.
I've exported lots of documents as images and the text has never wrapped differently to how it was on-screen.
Would it be possible for you to supply more information?
An SLA (or Collected For Output bundle), a PDF that's wrapped "right" and an image that's wrapped "wrong" would help.
It's difficult to say what's going on without being able to actually see it happen.

You're welcome.

It's worth noting that if you're going to be justifying text then you should also be learning about more serious typographical issues. Simply justifying the text will leave you with all kinds of big spaces in the text that will probably make it look worse than having a ragged edge.

Have a look at manual tracking and word spacing (and other related things) to see what you can do to make the text look much nicer.

Text and Typography / What languages work as of today (2018)?
« Last post by mondainai on January 18, 2018, 07:28:28 am »
Most info about language support that I've found seems outdated, so I thought I'd ask:

I need to make a leaflet in English, Chinese, Tigrinya, Amharic, Arabic and Dari (Persian).

Is it worth downloading Scribus for this?

Beginner Talk / Text re-wrapping upon Export>Image
« Last post by inkuser on January 17, 2018, 09:35:15 pm »
I hope there's a fix for this..when I export pages from Scribus as image, some of them have their text re-wrapped.

I've tried imposing hard returns to preserve the line breaks but this doesn't help.

Is there a setting to instruct Scribus: "keep the line breaks as they are!"  ?

As with my previous posts, GarryP, I'm working through Windows 7. I've set up the page numbering through the master pages in my file, and have been working through a tutorial. I tried using Insert>Character>Page Number, which put a hash # in place of the Ctrl+Alt+Shift+P, and when I closed Master Pages, all of the pages I had experimented on (FeatureL), had disappeared!

So I don't know what is going wrong, and would appreciate some instructions so that I can go about this in the correct manner.

It looks like the attached screen snip from the PDF.

With Scribus 1.4.6 on Windows 10 the Ctrl+Alt+Shift+P short-cut works just fine (as does the related menu item "Insert -> Character -> Page Number").
I've checked Scribus 1.4.6 on Ubuntu 17 and both methods work fine there too.
On Macs the key combination is slightly different but I remember the menu item worked on 1.4.6.

Personally I don't use the short-cut as I don't have to insert a page number very often - never more than once per page and usually only once per master page - and just use the menu item instead.

Have you tried resetting your Keyboard Short-cuts via Preferences and then restarting Scribus? Did that make a difference?

Also, what do you mean by: "Only the command itself is displayed."? What command and where and how is it being displayed? (This doesn't sound like normal Scribus functionality.)
