PDF Generation / Re: Can't export to PDF

I remember that in the past there was as bug like that Scribus showed a path that was not correct (which prevented PDF creation because the current dirctory was write protected), so by just re-navigating to the correct directory you could then save the PDF.

Sorry a.l.e., our version of Scribus is 1.4.6. and GhostScript 9.07 32-bit.

Yes, I was sitting next to her - laptop next to laptop.  What is weird is the PDF files that will not display in Scribus will open up on her laptop in Adobe Acrobat Reader just fine.  Other PDFs, from the same directory location, will open in both Scribus and Acrobat on her laptop.

Next, I will try to Get Image from a USB drive and see how that works.  Also, I read in another post that someone ran their PDFs through a program called GIMP and the display issue was resolved.  I will try that after the USB test.

hard to say.

we hear what you tell us she told you she is doing...

from my experience in IT, i would first check if she is indeed doing what you think she is doing.
did you try to sit next to her, when she imports the file and see if she does something different than you?

if all looks ok, i would try to copy the files she cannot open to a usb key and try to open that file on your laptop.
or check if in her path there are special chars that are not in yours.

i would say that there is no reason why it would work differently on the same version of scribus and ghostscript and the windows version should not make a difference.
... up to the fact that there is no scribus version 14.5.6 all seems to be ok...

I am new to Scribus and I really like it - it is working well for my application - creating a weekly church bulletin.  I am using both Dropbox and Google Drive to share a Scribus file with our church secretary so we can update the file as new data becomes available.  I have a Windows 7 system with Scribus 14.5.6 and everything works fine for me. 

However, the secretary cannot "Get Image" of PDFs from a folder of hymns that I have loaded in either Dropbox or Google Drive.
She has a laptop with Windows 10.  Importing PDFs into Scribus from either location work for me, but only a few of the PDFs import into the common Scribus file for the secretary.  She is using the same version of Scribus and we are both using Ghostscript 9.21.  Does anyone know why some of the PDFs pull into Scribus for her, but not others?

very unlikely but not impossible that it is a scribus issues...

i would tip on a full disk or a locked file / directory... but hard to say without seeing your monitor...

I have now changed the directory I am saving to. Instead of saving to My Documents I have saved to Downloads and amazingly IT WORKS. Not sure what the problem was. Thank you for looking.

Hello,
I go to File, scroll down to Export, then click Save as PDF.
The Pre Flight Verifier pops up.
I click Ignore Errors.
The large Save as PDF box opens.
I click Save.
A Warning box opens saying "Cannot write the file" together with the file path.

It has been working fine. I haven't done anything differently. I have been creating PDFs happily for several weeks.

i guess we need more details...

how are you exporting to pdf?

what does it mean "stopped working" in this case?
you cannot open the dialog?
you cannot get the pdf once it as been "created"?
scribus crashes when exporting?

ciao

I have been exporting docs to PDF no problem but today it has stopped working. I have exited and relaunched the programme several times but this does not help. The document is fourteen pages long and contains text and graphics. Any ideas how to solve this please?
