Beginner Talk / Re: Dupe styled objects = dupe styles!
« Last post by GarryP on Today at 11:39:09 am »
This is a tricky issue to replicate.

As I said above, I've seen it a lot but I only notice it when I open the Style Manager (not a regular thing once my styles have been created) so I don't know when - during all of the changes I make - it actually happens.

If I remember, the next time I get it I will close the document and re-open it to see if the duplicates disappear. At least that will give a bit more information for bug-tracking.

The document it's happening on is a work document and I'm not at liberty to share it, also, it doesn't always happen..only when I'm not looking.

The thing is...if this is a bug, I can truly see how it could be useful, but only if the user can have input...for example, if she/he holds a modifier key while duplicating an objects, then all of the styles in that object would be duplicated as well; else, styles are not duplicated.

If you have a document where you can replicate this issue after having closed and reopened it, please share it on !
most of all if it happens with 1.5.3.

peraonally, i've not experienced any issue with duplicating styles for a long time... but i still would love it, if scribus did not use internally the names that are shown to the users (and can be modified by them... but the team seems not to have any interest in making the change).

I've seen this loads of times but I have no idea why it happens. If you keep on top of it and delete/replace as you have done then it's not a major issue, just a weird thing that Scribus does.

There are various Mantis tickets about duplicate styles which say that the problems is fixed but the problem is still there so it looks like we just have to put up with it.

P.S. They're called "Styles", not "Style Sheets". A "Style Sheet" would be a different thing.

I just registered an account here, so I thought I'd say hello.

in working with the document I'm developing in Scribus, I've noticed that I will suddenly have multiple copies of the same style sheet, eg: 

Body (1)
Body (2)
Body (3)

I can get rid of (1) through (4) by selecting them all, clicking "Delete" and (usually) I get to choose which style to replace the deleted instance with.

Might this be an experimental feature? I am using 1.4.6...

Thank you. That makes sense. I'll try it.

Personally I don't like the idea of having sections of the forum that are just for people who speak specific languages (except for the pages about language support). That kind of thing tends to create little "walled gardens" that don't contribute to, or benefit, the rest of the forum.

I have no problem with forums that are predominately for a specific language - E.g. - but I think all of this forum should be for everyone no matter what language they type in.

I can only read English so I generally ignore most non-English posts. This is because I don't trust machine translators to be able to give me the information properly translated given the technical nature of what goes on here. In other words, if I can't trust the translation then it's difficult to know if I'm answering the right question so I just don't try.

If people want to post in a non-English language then I have no problem with that either, it's just a bit of conversation that passes me by and I don't worry about it.

Maybe one of the administrators of can help with setting up an Italian site. (A lot of the set-up can probably be copied across wholesale with only a few small tweaks here and there.)

P.S. scriber, I agree with a.l.e. Your English is good - actually better than some English-born people I've known over the years!
