PDF Generation / Registration marks for bigger canvas
« Last post by bartosek.petr@gmail.com on September 17, 2017, 09:06:10 am »
Hello all,

I am working on Billboard (340 x 173 cm). I need to prepare pdf file for printing.
There is just one registration mark on this big canvas on each side.
They need registration marks in span of 50 cm only for offset printing in the press service.
I cant find how to do it in Scribus.

Could anyone help me please how have registration marks on every 50 cm?
Thanks a lot!
Petr

my work on the new scripter was/is in this github repository:

https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-plugin-scripter

the most interesting information source is

https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-plugin-scripter/issues/3

as you can read in the (currently) last comment of mine, i'm right now testing a new approach using pybind11.

my tentatives can be followed here:

https://github.com/aoloe/cpp-pybind11-playground

it still looks a bit wild but i'm close to get a prototype that could be used for building a new scripter.
and, with a bit of luck, that repository will transform in a nice manual on how to embed a python interpreter inside of a c++ application.
(imo, this is something that is not well documented, and every project is creating its own solution)

the reason why i'm trying a new approach is this issue:

https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-plugin-scripter/issues/7
(we cannot get signals and slot to cross the c++ -> python boundary)

combined with the issue 3 linked above -- which states that the technology used by the scripter created by henning is not supported anymore (and have never really been supported) -- i prefer restarting from scratch, get much inspiration from the wonderful previous new scripter (really, it looks like a very clever solution... even if i could not understand everything!), and produce a new scripter with a very similar API as the so called scripter 2.

i hope to have my tentatives finished by the end of next week and then i could need work with defining the API and porting the code from the scripter 1 and 2 to the scripter 3

ah, please, forget as soon as possible the name scripter 3... if it gets into scribus, it should simply be the new scripter or the pybind11 scripter : - )

To cut a long story short: it's saturday evening,  time to party!

PDF Generation / "Use Color Profiles" options in PDF export
« Last post by bymarion on September 16, 2017, 10:22:59 pm »
Hi !

I'm designing some greeting cards and my printer's file requirements state that:
1) they need pdf/X-4 files in CMYK only, output intent set to GRACol2006
2) color profiles should be embedded for images

I am using scribus 1.5.3 and am confused as to what I should choose in the pdf export settings:
My files contain RGB images with an embedded sRGB profile.
So, it seems that to meet the printer's requirement I should check both "use color profiles" (to meet point 1) and "do not use embedded color profiles" (to meet point 2).
Is that correct ?  ::)


I'm thankful for your insight !

Beginner Talk / Insight into import svg
« Last post by Zceebee on September 14, 2017, 08:17:34 pm »
Hello,

I could use some help understanding the import svg function. When I tried to import an svg file created with Inkscape, I get a blank image as the result. If I use the open file feature, the artwork is opened in Scribus.

In the imported file, I am able to ungroup and see all of the objects as outlines only, no color fill or other information is there. If i double click any of these objects, I can see a path and not sure if there is something I need to do to the path. Is there something I need to do in Inkscape for saving as an svg for import into Scibus so the objects are shown?

If I use the Open feature however, the file opens in Scribus. I'm a little confused by these things and want to send my thanks in advance for any clarity someone brings.

but this issue is in scribus itself and cannot (really) be solved in the scripter...

Thnanks :) works nicely. I hope new scripting functionality with a saner API (like the never-finished scripter-ng) will come, this feels so much like visual basic ;D

yes, the goal now is to see if the file is the issue or the cloud...

i would also check the names of the file and see if those that do not work have spaces or accents in there...

also, you could rename one of the files that do not work in the cloud to a.pdf and see if then works...
