Beginner Talk / Re: Remove Page shadow from PDF output?
« Last post by GarryP on April 11, 2018, 12:13:56 pm »
It's an easy mistake to make when you're starting out so please don't worry about it.

It's probable that the "annoying white ring" that you mentioned is also something to do with your PDF reader. (I'm still curious as to what that was/is.)

The general rule is: "If you can see it while viewing the PDF, Scribus didn't put it there." There are some exceptions - crop and registration marks are two off the top of my head - but, normally, if you can see it on the PDF then either you put it there yourself or your PDF reader put it there.

It's always a good idea to have multiple PDF readers installed and to periodically check that your documents look okay with them all. If you're creating documents that you expect to be read on-line then it's also good practice to have multiple web browsers installed and to check that your PDF is properly displayed in those too.

For example, I have a simple newsletter that looks just fine in Adobe Reader (and Chrome, if I remember correctly) but looks awful in Firefox because of an issue with embedding one of the fonts I use in it. I have to outline that font to get it looking right in Firefox but that means that the text in that font is no longer searchable. It's not a huge problem for me in this circumstance but you are better off checking before making anything major.

Anyway, if you have any other issues, please don't hesitate to bring them up in the forum.

Depending on your needs, what's here http://forums.scribus.net/index.php/topic,2362.0.html might be useful, but keep in mind that they're all tricks (or hacks, if you prefer) and may not produce good results.
You could also try making a repetition of line-shape glyphs - see attached SLA - but that's awkward to get right and probably not advisable for professional documents. (There's a mini-tutorial about this somewhere on this forum but I couldn't find it.)

if i understand you correctly, you want to add a line below your paragraph.

if this is what you want to achieve, scribus cannot do it yet.

you can manually draw a line, of course...

Hello friends
I've been using PageMaker for some time now, and I'm transitioning to Scribus, but I'm having a pretty hard time. In the diagramming that I work on the pagemaker I use the "Wire Below Paragraph" feature, which you can check in the attached image, but I am not finding this option in Scribus, I am using the latest version 1.5.3. Help me please!!!



ale: you've asked the question in two languages. i've removed the portuguese version of your question... so that we have only one thread with your question...

Well, my guess there is that in this case it is your PDF viewer that adds the shadow.

and, most of all: please share a PDF  with a shadow.

scribus does not automtically add any shadow to your document.
