if you can share the image (in public or private), it's easier to give you further help...

Thanks for the reply.

This is the first photo I am putting into the newsletter.

The photo could be 4 MB but the newsletter at that point is only 177 KB.

Features / Master Document for long works?
« Last post by joesber on September 19, 2017, 03:45:21 pm »
Good day everyone,

as a user of Scribus (currently using the development version) I'm very proud of all its features, which are really professional. The version 1.5.4 suits the most of my current needs.

There is just one major problem when I'm working with it, because I want to layout books (which, sometimes, can be really long).

At this moment (09/2017) it is quite problematic to work with long documents and chains of text. The solution would be quite simple: to have two types of documets: -regular documents, and -master documents. By master document I mean an archive which includes and syncronize the regular documents. That's possible in InDesign (they call it "Book"), and even in LibreOffice (master document).

Does someone knows, if Scribus will have (someday in the medium future) such option?  Or if the team are even interested in the improvement of Scribus working with long documents?

Right now I used Scribus for simple designs and for finishing other projets from Gimp or Inkscape. But Scribus would have, in my opinion, much more potential if it would have any kind of master document, to split the long documents.

Thanks for your answers in advance  :)

(P.S.: I made a small research to see what Scribus Trunk or Indigo are developping right now, but it seems to me that most of the work are about Scribus' front-end)

 I amusing SCRIBUS 1.4.6

Windows 7

I created a 10-page newsletter. Nothing fancy or exotic.

I have created image frames. I am using a photo layer.

I go to the page I want to add the photo. I draw an image box. I right click the image box, and then select get image.

The image I want is in the folder that I keep the newsletter files- images, text, etc. In this instance it is a JPEG.

I select the image and I click on it and get the load hourglass.

Then the hourglass stops and no image fills the image frame. Nothing.

I don't understand. Is the file too big? why does it cut out?  Is there a max size to the newsletter.

I can open a new document, make an imagine frame, get image and one pops into the frame, mo problem.

Why won't it work on my newsletter file.

I have two different newsletters and now that's happening on both of those files.

Please help, I am confused by this and lost.

thanks for your "insight" on pybind!

i'll open a topic about the "pybind11 based scripter" in the forums, as soon as i've cleaned up the repository in a way that helps understanding what i am up to : - )

Wow, very happy you chose pybind11. I have a LOT of experience with boost::python and have liked pybind11 from the very beginning (still know only from docs), it is solving a lot of boost::python's issues, plus is much more lightweight. I will look at it. Good luck and thanks for the thorough information! vaclav

you cannot get scribus to do that for you (since scribus does no imposition).

but you can of course draw yourself the marks or write a python script that draws the marks for you.
