PDF Generation / Embed Font gets Outlined
« Last post by Xaphedo on June 19, 2017, 07:43:23 pm »
Hi!

When exporting my scribus file into a PDF one of the two fonts doesn't actually get Embedded, but Outlined.

In "Export" -> "Save as PDF" -> "Fonts" -> "Fonts to embed" I have both fonts, while "Fonts to outline" is completely empty. I'm not sure what's going on.

Once I export the PDF I can't select the text using the font in the reader, it's not listed in the embedded fonts in the file's properties, and it's definitely outlined (I checked via Inkscape). I can select the text which is using the other font though, which is embedded as it's supposed to be.

Any ideas? I've already looked around, and there doesn't seem to be any clear precedent to this :(

You're welcome Rupert. I look forward to seeing the next version. If it's used for something other than just your own experimentation/practice then maybe it could be added to the Success Stories on the Wiki.

As for the text justification, if you're replicating an existing format then, by all means, just do what they do. There is no right or wrong way but I thought it might look more fitting to the subject matter if it was justified.

Justification generally shouldn't be used by itself; as you have seen it usually makes quite a mess. (And I can't see any good reason for using forced justification which looks even worse.) You should only use justification in conjunction with hyphenation - manual or otherwise - and probably some manual typesetting which is the thing that takes some practice to get looking good. Good typesetting is, after all, an art.

I understand a.l.e.

All I was trying to do is give people some reasons for joining up.

Once someone registers a lot of extra possibilities opens up for them, if they want to take advantage.

P.S. I agree that just saying hello is nice and all but it's not particularly useful to other users. It's nice to hear from new users but I would much prefer to help them with something rather than just say hello back. (Also, I'd really like to see more new stuff in the Showcase area; there hasn't been much recently.)

hi map,

you can use a file sharing platform and post here the links...

something like https://framapic.org for images and https://framadrop.org for pdf and other files...

ciao

... that's true, garry...

anyway, i thought about my precedent post and, of course, it's nice if people post... but i'd prefer if they say something, about how the use scribus, show a screenshot of their work, say what they plan to use scribus for...

i don't feel disturbed by people just wanting to say hello (and thank you), but i don't want to promote that behavior either : - )

have a wonderful evening you all!

Hello and thank you all for your replies,
Unfortunately the files seem to be too large to send.
The .sla is 20kb which should be OK, and the .pdf is 2.7mb which isn't
Kind regards,
