Beginner Talk / Re: How to find (and open) files location ?
« Last post by a.l.e on June 05, 2018, 05:17:01 pm »
ciao enzo

i don't think that what you are describing is a workflow that i would recommend.
copying all the images i use (sometimes excluding some "standard" logo) has proven to be a more work at the beginning, but much more pleasant when i consider the whole lifetime of the project.

still, i agree that scribus should be able to show the directory where the image is located and there is very little missing to enable it.

first: you can do that, but it's not comfortable:

- extras > manage images.
- click on the seach button.
- copy the path you have in "start at".
- paste the path in your file manager's "go to" command.

but, really, if this is easier than going through your files, than you should probably reconsider your workflow and/or the way you're managing your images...

second: i've created a patch that adds a button in the images manager:

we will see if it will be accepted...

you can use "Collect for Output" under file, it will put all photo's etc. that are being used in one folder

Beginner Talk / How to find (and open) files location ?
« Last post by enzogian on June 05, 2018, 11:46:48 am »
Hello,
I wonder if there is a way to find the folder where a placed file is saved (or even opening) an image or graphic file placed in the Scribus layout. I am trying to migrate projects I use to do in InDesign, these projects are plenty of folders and many times (while designing the layout) I need to add new elements or photos to that particular folder where the images have been taken from.. the project is plenty of folders and sub-folders of many different subjects and topics etc.. so, having to look manually for the folder where the images have been taken is quite a pain (so to speak) ..

I wonder if Scribus has some sort of method or similar way to do this as in Indesign I used to use a feature in that simply shows (from a links list) and even allows to OPEN  the folder where the placed image is located .. so I could go directly to that particular folder in order to add any new elements or items as needed...
(hope it makes sense)

PS: Not sure if these capabilities are related to the fact I'm running Scibus (1.5.4) on Windows 10 ??

Many thanks and regards,

it should also work per drag and drop...



it depends a bit on your OS / window manager and the file manager you're using, but there are several combination of them that do work.

Thank you A.L.E.

Worked a treat.

The learning point for me is not to stay up so late that you my brain stops working. For some strange reason I was trying to drag and drop the image rather than load the image in the way I had already done from the rectangular image frame. DOH!

Again many thanks from a grateful Newbie to Scribus.

if you have converted your oval to an image frame, you can simply load the image into the frame as you would do with a normal image frame...

where are you stuck?

Hi!

Grateful for the help and guidance of the forum members to resolve my query.

I know how to insert a rectangular image frame and import an image from file. Then how to manipulate the image and image frame to get the size I want.

All good and dandy.

Now I want to display an image not bound by a rectangular image frame but by an elliptical or oval one.

I've tried using Default shapes, manipulating the circle one and then converting it to an image frame and that is where I get stuck.

Am I going about it in the right way or should I be using a different approach?

Please lighten my darkness.

Layout Issues / Re: Text Flow Around Frames

hi enzogian

in the opening post you're talking about editing the contour line. but as i learned from the files you provided with your bug report (.sla and screenshot), you are editing the frame shape instead.
just select the 'contour line' for the text flow and check 'edit contour line' in the nodes edit window and your problems should be gone.

as you see in the screencast above, here the arrow does increase the contour line in all four directions.
with a somehow up to date scribus.

and concerning multiple selections: the problem, i guess, is how to show values that are not the same in all the selected items.
probably, it's not that easy to get it right for all possible cases... and have a good ux / ui on top of it : - )

personally, i'd prefer to have styles for frames, so that you can apply the same formatting to multiple items (and being able to create / update a style based on the current selection).

When using the arrow, it increases the path only from one side of the square and not the four sides... (?)

I really hope they could implement the text flowing action for multiple selection. I can see Scribus allows change of properties like shadows, line colors and box colors..in multiple selection..
