Text and Typography / Re: Style Manager Problem
« Last post by Ged on July 03, 2018, 05:55:12 am »
Encountered the same problem with an oversized 'Export to PDF'  I got around it by shifting my windows taskbar to the right hand side.  But its an annoying little glitch.   ???  Not complaining; just letting folks know.

Installation and Setup / Scribus 1.5.4 AppImage not able to run on Arch Linux
« Last post by apastuszak on July 03, 2018, 05:29:44 am »
I downloaded the 1.5.4 AppImage, because none of the Scribus 1.5.4 packages in AUR will let you run it alongside 1.4.7, like you can on Windows.  I was hoping that the AppImage would let me do that.  Just to experiment.

When I run the AppIamage, it gives me this error immediately:

./scribus-1.5.4-linux-x86_64.AppImage: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1: undefined symbol: FT_Done_MM_Var

Any idea what this is and how it might be fixed.

Text and Typography / Style Manager Problem
« Last post by Ged on July 02, 2018, 01:29:22 pm »
Im trying to create a new paragraph style but the 'Style Manager' goes beyond the limits of my screen.  I try to drag it up so that I can see the 'Done' button but it wont lift. When I press 'Enter' all sorts of weird things happen because I can't see what Im clicking.  Is there something I can do here?

General Discussion / Ligatures PDF export
« Last post by benberlin on July 02, 2018, 01:03:55 pm »
Hey there,

I noticed that scribus has ligatures. When I export a file with f.e. https://scribus.net and want to copy that adress out of the document it copies "h-8ps". Is there a way to export pdf without ligatures but keep them inside the document?

Vector graphics and postscript / Re: Possible vector graphic trouble pdf/x-1a
« Last post by LesCM19 on June 29, 2018, 01:56:26 am »
What’s the size of the file with vectors? Vectors can make the file very large. It is annoying how DTRPG doesn’t tell you what’s wrong when a file won’t upload though.

It was a fair size, I'll check when I touch base with home. I got the impression the website upload was 'timing out' or rejecting it as a false positive for...something or other. That was just my feeling as you say, no specific error to work with, I was just reading between the lines.

I would recommend converting the file to an image format at 400-600 dpi depending on your smallest font point size. jpg / tif / png file formats should work, double check with DTRPG.  Also vector files actually are smaller than raster/image files.  Another option if you have access to Adobe Acrobat is to resave the pdf file to flatten: see  https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/printing-complex-pdfs-acrobat.html  about 4 topics down from the top before uploading your file.

PDF Generation / Re: Won't show as a PDF
« Last post by Nermander on June 28, 2018, 10:41:28 pm »
Just to clarify.

Scribus has two options for layers. Visible and Printable. They can be used in any combination.

Layer is not visible but prints (ends up in PDF but does not show on screen in Scribus)
Layer is visible but does not print (does not end up in PDF, but is shown on screen in Scribus)
Layer is visible and prints (ends up in PDF and is shown on screen in Scribus)
Layer is not visible and does not print (does not end up in PDF or show on screen in Scribus).

Beginner Talk / Re: Total Newbie - importing from Microsoft Publisher - text boxes
« Last post by a.l.e on June 28, 2018, 04:48:49 pm »
nice that that got sorted out!

(btw, the "rant" about uploading the needed file was not target at you directly: i rather wanted to leave a trace and maybe help people in the future to get better and quicker replies by providing enough information and files : - )

hi

i got the the .pub file from the bug tracker and:

- there does not seem any content in there that needs to be hidden from the world!
  guys, please make our life easier and share your work, when you want help on issues that happen with a specific file!
- i could not find any issue in the file.
  what you are experiencing is probably: "grouping". a few text frames are grouped with rectangles surrounding them.
  just ungroup them and you will be able to edit the text below it.
  i'm not 100% sure of it, but from your description, this could be the issue.

if i'm correct with the diagnose above, this issue could have been resolved in a matter of minutes if you would have provided the file and other people could have seen it.

if you want to learn about scribus, the flossmanual is not a bad resource: http://write.flossmanuals.net/scribus/introduction/

and if you have further questions, just open a new topic : - )

have fun!
a.l.e

Sorry about that - just followed the suggestion in the original post to make it private not realising that it would be counter productive.

Will try and ungroup and report back by editing this post. I may be calling for help again, though!

Edit: yes, a simple ungroup made the text boxes editable. Thanks again for all the help.
Also, full marks for adding a working import mechanism for Publisher files.
As can be seen up thread, it is a nightmare without this feature.
