General Discussion / Re: The year 2018 in review
« Last post by a.l.e on January 07, 2019, 11:27:26 am »
so, the post is published:



http://impagina.org/news/2018-12-31-year-review

sadly, without any screenshot for projects done in 2018: there are none in the wiki, the one submitted here by rodney were not (in my eyes) very typical for scribus... and -- somehow -- i did not feel comfortable with only showing samples from one user (plus eventually the ones of mine... but they are not really representative for the scribus usage, either...).

i still need to create the "showcases" section on https://impagina.org (http://scribus.martinreininger.de/showcase.html) and it would be nice to feature your work, rodney, but it would be more worth if it was not just a screenshot of a cover.
a glimpse in the inner parts... if possible as a photo on a neutral background.
as an example, here is a collection i have created a few years ago:
http://write.flossmanuals.net/scribus/examples-using-scribus/

and what did other poeple do in 2018?

nermander? utnik? mnawij? dragonfly? (and others who regularly post in here...)
do you have any recent work that would be suitable to be shown in a showcase?
if possible, combined with a short description of the workflow : - )

Text and Typography / Re: Editing text font over multiple text frames (pages).

hi john

the usual (and best) way would be to change the font in the style definition. but i don't know if you worked with styles.
if you didn't, the 'story editor' (ctrl + t) is the way to go. here you can select text across the frames.

…in the future i recommend the use of paragraph styles.

Text and Typography / Editing text font over multiple text frames (pages).
« Last post by JohnJR on January 06, 2019, 09:00:49 pm »
Hi Folks,

I constructed a 56-page document close to a year ago with LibreOffice, Scribus 1.5.2, and Mac.  Everything went fine with the print shop and ebook.  However here it is a year later and I want to change the font (typeface).  Stumbling around back then, I must have created linked left and right pages because if the text hadn't magically flowed automatically from start to end I would have remembered the tedium.

Now I have decided the change the font (typeface) in the body of the text.  After some recall, I discovered how to do this text frame to text frame (select and properties), but not to accomplish this change across, must have been linked, multiple left and right text frame pages.  I hoped the automatic flow from page to page would happen, but the selection highlight does not progress beyond one page's text frame, it stops.

Is there a feature that will allow me to select the text over the entire document's text frames and edit the font in one swoop or is it text frame by text frame?  For this small document it is possible, but what if this was a novel?

Thanks,

John

It is a warning I can't ignore. The PDF of the magazine is simply not made after this message.
Even if you click the buttojn in the bottom right corner that says (in the English version) Ignore errors?

Ah, it is an Indesign drawing, I honestly don't know how well Scribus supports these in an image frame (or even at all). Are you sure the file is not named with an incorrect suffix? (Since the image seems to import.)

Hi Nermander and Mnawij,

It is a warning I can't ignore. The PDF of the magazine is simply not made after this message.
I only can open the pictures in Acrobat reader and don't see how many pixels really are there.

I tried to do what Mnawij suggested and enclose the two pictures. Sadly this did't work because the max size for an attachment is 2MB and mine are about 3.6 each.
Is there a way to send you these PDF's?

I use Scribus 1.4.7 on Windows 10.

The moment I make my choise I receive an answer that the document cannot be saved for the images are
too small (less than 144 DPI, rsolution is only 109 x 109 DPI.

What you get is a warning, you can ignore it to generate the PDF.


Resolution is a function of the number of pixels verus the printed size.

The warning says the image is 109 DPI, this could be an 109x109 pixels image printed as 1x1 inch, or it could be a 1090x1090 pixels image printed as 10x10 inches. Or something in between.

An image that is 1090x1090 pixels and uncompressed bitmap would become about 3,5 MB with 3 bytes per pixels (24 bit RGB).

So open the image in an image editor or viewer and check how many pixels high and wide it is.

HarrieJ,

Your choice, you upload them to the post, someone else might be able to preflight them for you before I can on Tuesday or you can email me, either way is fine.  Also if you could post which version of Scribus you are using and on what operating system. Thanks!

Hello mnawij,

Thanks for your help. I sure don't mind to upload the two pictures. They are two advertisements that should be placed full page in our club magazine.
Can I attach them to a message to your emaildress that I find at the leftside of your answer?
I will gladly wait until wednesday, no problem.

Hi HarrieJ,

File size does not always correlate to correct resolution.  The only way to be sure is to use a .pdf pre-flight software to verify the resolution of the original pdf files before their placement into Scribus.  The problem might not be with Scribus at all...  If you do not mind uploading the original pdf's, I can run them through acrobat professionals preflight as well as enfocus' pitstop editor if you do not have access to preflight software, it will not be until Tuesday when I return to work though.

Cheers!

I'm new to Scribus and I have created a magazine. But when I want to save a PDF (export --> save as PDF)
I have problems with two PDF-images that I used in the magazine, full page in two frames.
The moment I make my choise I receive an answer that the document cannot be saved for the images are
too small (less than 144 DPI, rsolution is only 109 x 109 DPI.
The two PDF on my PC are in fact about 3 MB so where it goes wrong?
Thanks.
