General Discussion / Help with text drop caps
« Last post by DP01 on July 06, 2018, 11:03:41 pm »
Hello,

I am using drop caps with each paragraph, i need to add another paragraph without the drop caps showing. I am not sure what i need to do as it wont let me do this.

Can any explain this, thanks.

hi founder   

the low resolution is from the source file.but you might have exported to a .pdf version without support for transparencies (1.3, x/1-a or x/3)…   
either you use .pdf 1.4 or higher or you have to reduce the transparencies in an image editor.

Thanks, that was the solution, just created the PDF as 1,4 and it looks now fine.

Here a screenshot from the produced PDF.

It looks terrible compared to the original pictures.

hi founder   

your .png files look good as long as you show them in small scale.depending on the preferred print resolution you may use them in post stamp size. with 200 ppi the length of the tesla will be around 4 cm (1.65"). for high resolution prints it will go down to sess than  2.5 cm (1").
you might need better images for your project.

the pictures are really small!

if you're printing them at a size bigger than 1 or 1 1/2 cm you will get a really tiny resolution!

Raster and Vector Graphics / PNG looks good in preview but terrible in PDF output

I have attached PNG graphics which look good on the screen, but complete unuseable in the PDF output.

The PDF output looks like 2 colors black and white and lower resolution.

It is of course possible to do in Scribus, but for the task you described I personally think it's to much manual work.

This document was actually used by the author in the second edition of his game!

Enjoy!

Extremely helpful - thank you!
I'll probably go ahead and use Libre Office then-- it appears to have the needed tools.
