Beginner Talk / Re: How to spell check in USA English?
« Last post by richardpaulhall on May 22, 2017, 04:50:49 am »
The topic was spell checking and not hyphenation.

I ran a number of experiments trying to get spelling dictionaries to make sense.
Nothing made sense, so I made a hack.

Beginner Talk / Re: Blured Image when pasting from Ksnapshot

ciao adriana

in such a case, it would be nice if you could attach the scribus file.

on the other side, if you paste an image into scribus, the image will be embedded in the document.

if you want to check the quality of the image, you can right click on it, disable the embedding of the image, save it on your disk and open it with gimp...
you will then see if the image is good enough...

also, you might want to check the quality of the preview resolution in the context menu...

General Discussion / Story-Editor open at current page
« Last post by mikolaskova on May 18, 2017, 06:34:10 pm »
Hi,

is there a possibility to open the story-editor somewhere close to the text of the current page?

It's somehow difficult to search the spot to edit some words, sentences...I thought maybe i missed some feature.

Thanks and regards,

Adriana

Beginner Talk / Blured Image when pasting from Ksnapshot
« Last post by mikolaskova on May 18, 2017, 02:55:50 pm »
Hello,

when I paste an image from Ksnapshot, it's inserted very blured, bad quality...images copied from elsewhere are alright.

This happens with Scribus 1.5.2 on Kubuntu, with 1.4.6 it pasting images from everywhere works as expected ...

Is this a know problem in 1.5.2?

Thanks and regards

Adriana

hi,

yes, it covers it- there is another request https://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=14549 that comes close to this subject.
In general I'm often asked about moving, resizing, rotating the image within the frame (by mouse- numericaly it's possible via image properties palette)

ciao,

Adriana

hoi adriana

i really don't know (anymore) what this circle was meant to do... but i would also expect to be used as the center of the rotation and to be draggable.

after having found this old ticket of mine

0008977: respect frame's basepoint when rotating a picture in the frame
https://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=9799

i would guess that the feature has never been implemented.


btw, this even older ticket:

0008979: use mouse delta for inline image rotation
https://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=8979

seems to cover the other issue you have been having with the rotation...

...maybe there is some misunderstanding about my question

you can rotate the imageframe (R, Toolbar-Rotate-Icon oder numerically in the properties palette)
there you can change the origin of rotation - at least for the numerical entry of degrees this does work, so you can rotate around one of the corners or the center...

my question was about rotating the image (that is loaded into the image frame)
on kubuntu, scribus 1.5.2 I can double click the image and move it within the frame
or - when pressing shift and move the mouse rotate it

there is a blue icon for the origin- I thought, maybe you can somehow move this to change the origin of rotation for the image (not image frame)

Beginner Talk / Re: Scribus hide file operation and edit toolbar

hoi adriana

here is my incomplete tutorial on "cleaning up" the scribus interface:

https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-manual-first-steps/blob/master/content/clean-user-interface/clean-user-interface.md

among other things, it explains how to show/hide the toolbar (the screencast is still missing...)

and, yes, garry, that part of the user interface needs a rework!

You're welcome but I think the "problem" may be with the OS you are using.

There should be a visual clue - in this case, on Windows, a "bar" made of short lines - that shows there is something you can manipulate but it isn't shown on your screenshot. If the visual clue isn't there then most people will not know that there is something they can use.

Or maybe it's just not shown when a menu is open, I don't really know.

Apologies, my memory isn't very good. The linked post is for something a bit different than this.

On WIndows, I've just changed the basepoint for an image frame to the centre point and the frame rotates about its centre, so that looks right. However, I can't use the SHIFT key to do anything with the image within the frame, no rotation, no effect at all and I think I've tried every combination of keys/drags/scrolls/clicks.

Adriana, can you explain exactly what you are doing, on what OS, and what you expect it to do please?
