Layout Issues / Re: Text overlapping in same frame despite link with next page
« Last post by theophny77 on January 13, 2019, 06:06:17 pm »
Hi Nermander,
Sorry for not being accurate enough.
So after the copy from the pdf (selection + Ctrl+C), I click to put the cursor
at the end of the text frame after the following text : "Que rien ne peut le contenir ?" then I just
do a Ctrl+V in Scribus.
Then the selected text appears at the top of the current frame.

Hi utnik,
Yes they are two distinct text frames !
Texte7 (the former) and Texte8 (added after the paste).

If I add manually some text, I got the same result that the paste :
the text is added in a new frame ...

Is it related with the "action" mode ?

Thank you.
Jean-michel

hi jean-michel

the arrows indicate three text frames!
i recommend to grab the left frame and move it – just to see what part of the text will move with it…

How do you paste it into the frame? Do you click to place the cursor or do you double click? 

You should describe every step, like "click on this, double clock on that, select this menu item" etc.


What happends if you type something on the keyboard instead of pasting?

Hi Nermander,
I copy the text from a pdf selection then I paste it in my text frame.
I am going to try a copy from a simple notepad to see the difference.

This seems strange, my first guess is that you are accidentally inserting a new text frame on top of the current.

Can you describe the actions you take when trying to insert new text?

Hi,

First of all, happy new year for 2019 from France !

Secondly, I would like to get some help regarding an overlapping text problem encountered in the same frame, under scribus 1.5.4
Details :
When I try to add some text to the end of a text frame, even though the current page is linked to the next one, the text systematically overlaps in the same frame, at the beginning of the frame. Any new text inserting occurs then at the top of the frame.
Furthermore, I need to activate the VerrNum key to begin any inserting in my text frame, even when the document is reopened.

Thirdly, I would like to appreciate Scribus. It is really a fantastic tool and I rarely encountered crashes on my windows 10 laptop.
I decided to move from Serif PagePlus to Scribus and I can tell you that the speed, the memory use, the easyness of any functionality (even the TOC that I use for every song title in my song book and not for a limited number of frames) are outstanding.

Thank you for your help.

Jean-michel, Nemours, France

PDF Generation / Re: Error message in Preflight Verifier - what does this mean

PDF versions lower than 1.5 (I think) cannot handle transparency.

it's just .pdf 1.3 (and the 1.3 based versions x-1a and x-3).
.pdf 1.4 and above can handle transparencies.

Whether this is a problem or not depends on how your are using it, but in most cases it means that transparent or semitransparent objects become solid color.

When I export to PDF in the Preflight Verifier everything has green checks except:

Layers
   Layer "Background - body text" Issue(s):  1
          Transparency used

I have no idea what that means. Is it a problem to printing this out from my PDF?

It's been a while not since I did this so I am not sure what solutions still apply.

There is a page in the wiki giving a few examples of programs to use for imposition (which is the term for what you are doing).

https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/PDF,_PostScript_and_Imposition_tools

I think Bookbinder is the easiest one (it can only manage simple impositions though).

I used Multivalent in the past but I think they have made changes to newer versions don't have the impose command in the free version. Also Multivalent needed you to craft a command line for the imposition, which was sometimes not easy.

jPDF Tweak is another decent alternative, it gives you some assistance with creating the "command" at least (it has a somewhat GUI).

The page on the wiki mentions Adobe Reader, but I think that for n-up printing Adobe Reader adds borders to the pages which makes the page size wrong (but this may depend on version of Adobe Reader).
