Text and Typography / Re: Nested Listing and Numbering
« Last post by Googly Googly on December 04, 2017, 08:31:37 pm »
Am using scribus-1.5.3-linux-x86_64.AppImage on Ubuntu 16.04. Its not installed from the repository. Hence, there said path to paste the Bullets.py file is not working.

I could figure out the solution very much in the Scribus itself. You may get the file attached below. It can be downloaded and styles nesting may be viewed to know what all is done there. Finally, my faith in the engineer and technologist is intact.

Beginner Talk / print is off center
« Last post by Dominican on December 04, 2017, 05:50:51 pm »
Hi,

This is my first attempt at a Scribus document - 2 copies of a Christmas card - and it looks like everything is lined up nicely.  However when I print, everything is moved to the left approximately 1/16", so neither the logo on the "back" (after folding in half) nor the text & photo on the "front" are centered.  I tried this on two different computers/printers and the same thing happened on both.  What is wrong?

Computers are Windows Vista and Windows 8; printers are Xerox 5660 and Canon mp560, if it matters.

I was hoping to move to using Scribus instead of Adobe PageMaker, but not if I'll have to manually compensate for this issue in every file I make.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I am not sure how easy it is to do in Open/LibreOffice.

In MS Word you can have different "counters" for numbering, and decide when they should reset or continue.

But as Garry said, Scribus doesn't currently have features like this.

I just started with Scribus on Ubuntu but I am not able to get nice pictures in my pdf. The pictures are not sharp and too dark. On internet I read that you need 96 dpi only for documents printed on screen. But on my pdf I have to set 400 dpi to get sharp pictures on screen.

Could you please inform me about the minimum resolution/settings for the picture size of 572.50 pt x 246.56 pt?

Welcome to the forum Googly Googly.

As far as I know, this sort of thing isn't possible with Scribus, except when done manually. Bullets and numbering are very basic in Scribus.

You could get the text how you want it using LibreOffice and import it but that's not a very efficient solution.

These comments relate to the current stable version of Scribus - 1.4.6 - but I have no idea if later (developmental) versions do anything different. Maybe one of the 1.5.x users can advise differently. (This shows some promise: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfpZXmqrXRY)

You could try a script - e.g. https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Bullets_and_numbered_lists - but you would probably have to mess around with it to get it working the exact way you want and that might take more time and/or effort than just doing it manually.

P.S. You might be able to wrangle the method given here https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Sequentially_Numbered_Items_-_Basic_Method to do something like what you want but I don't have high hopes.

Text and Typography / Nested Listing and Numbering
« Last post by Googly Googly on December 04, 2017, 05:45:00 am »
I want to create the following type of nested numbering in Scribus, not manually.
Main points:
--> I want a list which continues independent of any other style, section, page etc.
--> If desired the list must depend on some variable like other style, list, heading, page, section, form etc.
--> There should be an option whether this list has any bearing on the numbering pattern of any Heading or listing.
--> It should be possible to restart the list anywhere and with any starting number.
--> There should be an option by which one can include more such lists nested inside any of the Heading or Listing.

Here is the sample output which I want:

1. Heading-1 Chapter Name

1.1 Heading-2 Topic-1 name

Paragraphs- Scribus is a great sofware. Scribus is a great sofware. Scribus is a great sofware. Scribus is a great sofware. Scribus is a great sofware. Scribus is a great sofware.

Beginner Talk / Edit Image, Scribus says "Gimp already open."
« Last post by dezcat on December 03, 2017, 08:05:09 pm »
which...good to know, but I'm not asking for the status of Gimp; I want to edit the image.

Is there a way to instruct Scribus that, whether the image editor is open or not, "Edit image..." means "open image in editor"  ?

thank you!

Text and Typography / Re: remove formatting from all text in document
« Last post by GarryP on December 03, 2017, 02:49:53 pm »
Welcome to the forum Christian.

Unfortunately I don't think it's possible to fully remove all formatting from multiple text frames at the same time.
Once you select multiple text frames the Text tab of the Properties Palette becomes unavailable and you can't do a Find/Replace across multiple frames.

You can change the line and fill formatting of multiple frames but there's no way that I know of to change the text formatting en masse like that. It's not something I've ever needed to do so maybe someone else has a solution that I've missed.

If you have been using styles you can delete the relevant styles - making a copy of the style first to keep it for later - but that's messy and might not work properly (I've not done any tests).

There might be a way to do it with a script but someone else would have to advise on that.

P.S. All of the above relates to 1.4.6, I don't know if 1.5.x is any different.
