Raster and Vector Graphics / "The program gimp is missing!"
« Last post by PeterK on January 18, 2019, 06:25:47 pm »
Brand new to Scribus, and finding that attempts at image editing are thwarted by the message "program gimp is missing!"

In line with advice I found in older threads I ensured that gimp (which is installed) is selected in file >> preferences >> external tools >> imaging processing tool, which it is. But when I go to "edit image" by right-clicking image or via the edit menu, I am still stopped by the same error message. Any help and advice would be appreciated.

I have to produce number of labels and I have few objects which I use on different group of labels.

This user case is similar to producing a number of business cards.

I suggest one route is to explore https://github.com/berteh/ScribusGenerator as a python script and create VARS for your label (aka business card) objects.

i don't think that's a good idea...

- you can keep the item in a separate file.
- put the items in the "window > scrapbook".
- you can put the items outside of the canvas.
- or, as you already mentioned, on an hidden layer.

if you hide them, you will have a hard time finding them again...

I have to produce number of labels and I have few objects which I use on different group of labels. So I thought about creating the first label with all objects and then to Save As the label for another version which might need the other object. With hiding labels I could have all objects present in all files and keep them turning on and off depends on the label I have to create. Anyway, I kept them in hidden layer instead and added another, visible layer, where I move the object I need for that particular label.

Thank you for reply. OK. I can't hide them then. Transparency maybe works for objects but only if they aren't grouped.

you cannot really hide items (which is somehow logical) but you can use the main tab of the properties palette to disable the export to pdf.

(and yes, you can hide items by making them transparent...)

Hi,
Is there a way to hide objects on layer instead of hiding the whole layer?

Thank you so much,
Actually, after upgrade to version 1.5 in Windows, it seems that what didn't work before now does :
change color or other attributes do now work under section "frame content editiing"
(I can't be sure exactly if taht's its name, I've got the French version of Scribus)
One can highlight and modify what is highlighted only in that " Frame Content Editor"  which makes sense,
insofar as zooming focus on text is much easier there.
Scribus is going to let me forget about other progs, after some training, of course!

Scriborn,

1. Highlight the text that you want to change the color of in the original text frame.
2. Choose Color & Effects tab
3. Choose the color that you want.

Let me know if you need anymore assistance.

Cheers!
