PDF Generation / Images move when exporting to pdf
« Last post by jrossjord on March 17, 2019, 04:00:26 pm »
I'm a bit lost. When I export to PDF the document looks exactly the same until I upload that pdf to KDP for a book cover. The image and text on one layer moves and isn't where it is in the Adobe opened file, or the original Scribus file.
Any ideas?

Thank you a.l.e. for all your help.
In the end, I had to redo the work from scratch for a few reasons, but I will save your suggestions for the future!

Hi jim78b,

Let me clear up somethings, pdf files can be either raster or vector.  If you import the file into Scribus as vector, then the artwork is now part of the Scribus file.  If you place the pdf file into an image frame, I believe it is considered a raster image, but I could be wrong on that and then it will be considered a linked file.  A linked file stays connected to the original image/file when modified those changes will be reflected.  An embedded image no longer has a direct connection to the original file, at least as far as I know so no updates would occur, you would have to replace each embedded image.

If you import the logo as vector, you can modify it within Scribus and then copy and paste it as you need it.  If you would like to update the artwork across multiple instances then linking would be the best option to do so.

Layout Issues / Re: scribus 1.4.7 Object is a placed PDF

This is mainly a warning and as far as I remember it relates to two issues:

1. Normally Scribus will rasterize a placed PDF during PDF export (there is however a function labeled as "experimental" that will include the PDF "as is" at export).

2. For a placed PDF Scribus will not apply color management.

Windows / 32-bit or 64-bit

I am just getting started with Scribus. I attempted to download the 64-bit version for Windows, and to install it on my Windows 8.1 PC. It chose to install it in the directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Scribus 1.4.7. This implies to me that it has installed the 32-bit version.

  • Is there any reason not to install the 64-bit version on a 64-bit Windows PC?
  • Assuming not, how do I do this?
Thanks - Rowan

I think that in the properties for the frame you can select the reference point. But maybe that is just for the frame, not the image inside the frame?

if you can manage using ghostscript directly, you can also try to resize the pdf.

this stackoverflow reply

gives a possible command:

gs \
 -o output.pdf \
 -sDEVICE=pdfwrite \
 -dPDFFitPage \
 -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 \

It's ok, I kept googling and finally found the answer. Need to remove all bleeds and then check 'use document bleeds' when exporting. Worked a treat!
