Layout Issues / Re: Layer
« Last post by a.l.e on June 12, 2018, 12:20:19 pm »
so, i've had a look at the .sla and the .pdf you have created.

what sticks out from the .sla file, is that you have many layers that are printable but not visible.

because they are printable, they will be included in the pdf.

i don't have any adobe acrobat on this machine, and i cannot test it with this program, but from what i'm writing (and what i understand from it) it seems that both scribus and adobe are doing the right thing and respect the the printable / visible flags.

i guess that evince and other viewer only respect the visible flag.
i've checked with inkscape, and all the layers are indeed included in the pdf, even if evince only shows me the visible ones (and i don't find any way to view the hiddens one).

there is probably a way to get the adobe products to behave in the way you want them to, maybe someone will be able to give you hints on that part.

finally, in the "preferences > preflight verifier" you can indeed get scribus to warn you when there is a mismatch between the "printability" and visibility of a layer (iirc it was a request of mine... and i would have preferred to have it on by default... but not everybody agreed with me on that latter point...).

Here's a simple example with a Scribus file, a PDF, and a print preview with Adobe Reader.

When I print the PDF all layers are printed even if they are disabled in the adobe layer manager. With Evice on Ubuntu no problem.

With Autocad it works well. Except it's too complicated to handle the order of displaying layers. That's why I prefer Scribus.



Voici un exemple simple avec un fichier Scribus, un PDF et un aperçu avant impression avec Adobe Reader.

Quand j’imprime le PDF l'ensemble des calques est imprimé même s'il sont désactivés dans le gestionnaire de calque d'adobe. Avec Évice sur Ubuntu pas de problème.

Avec Autocad ça fonctionne bien. Sauf qu'il est trop compliqué pour gérer l'ordre d'affichage des calques. C'est pour cela que je préfère Scribus.

hi fairmiles,

i'm following your write ups and -- in parallel -- i'm creating a set of files for reproducing the single behaviors:

- with detailed instructions on how to reproduce
- a description of the current results and
- a list of improvements that are necessary or nice to have

i'm starting with the html import, since it's a bit easier to create the demo files. but i plan to do the same files for odt, too.

i'll make the repository public as soon as i consider that the structure is definitive and i will then welcome contributions!

and concerning @mnavij concern about importing xml files: i would first get the html import straight and then see if there is a real need for some solution for custom xml...
what exactly do you want to do with xml wthat cannot be done with some python scripting (python can read xml and there is a scribus API for python) or with html?

bonjour michel

if the problem persists, please consider uploading a sample scribus file (collected for output with the font in use) and the pdf you have generated from it.

may i ask you what are you using the print preview for?

the tool you are looking at is not a print preview (despite its name) .

the print preview most people are looking for is:

view > preview mode (alt-ctrl-p)

on the other side, if ghostscript is installed through your package manager, i don't see a reason why scribus would not recognize it... strange.

Welcome PeterLinux

Could you post a screenshot of what you are seeing and maybe post the pdf file if you do not mind.  Also which OS (I am assuming Linux), if so which Distro?  I just put a pdf in Scribus 1.4.6 in Linux Mint 18.3 with no issues.  Just guessing but it might be a font issue where the fonts are not embedded in the pdf...

Hello, I'm a total newbie to Scribus.

Scribus-Version 1.4.6
03 Januar 2016
Build ID: C-C-T-F-C1.14.6-64bit
Ghostscript-Version: 9.18

I open a PDF file with Scribus and in Scribus the text isn't shown. I can only see the first letter of each line. So I definitively haven't WYSIWYG!

Is this a bug? Or is it intentionally to save processor ressources?

How can I see the whole text and get closer to WYSIWYG?

Kind regards

Yes, but a file generated with Autocad works well with adobe.

It does not print a layer if it is disabled.

Oui mais un fichier généré avec Autocad fonctionne bien avec adobe.

Il n'imprime pas un calque si il est désactivé.

That's how I did, I select the print icon in scribus, but later with the PDF reader we can not choose. He keeps this value.

Even if we disable a layer in the pdf reader it prints anyway.

With the default Ubuntu Evince reader it works but not with Acrobat Reader or Nuance PDF Reader.


C'est comme ça que j'ai fait, je sélectionne l'icone imprimer dans scribus, mais après  avec le lecteur PDF on ne peut plus choisir. Il garde cette valeur.

Même si on désactive une couche dans le lecteur pdf elle s'imprime quand même.

Avec le lecteur par défaut d'Ubuntu Evince ça fonctionne mais pas avec Acrobat Reader ou Nuance PDF Reader.
