Radu, thanks so much! The vertical gap was something over 10 inches. Restoring to defaults didn't help, but manually setting a gap of 0.2 inches worked just fine.

Thanks for the replies. When I wrote that the emoji 🎸 would show up everywhere else, I meant that indeed it was working in Libreoffice, my browser, and even in Scribus' internal text editor. However it wouldn't show up in the text box on the document when I updated the window.

I ended up testing the glyph by selecting the font in Google Fonts and pasting the emoji as sample text and sure enough the glyph wasn't working. So it's indeed a font problem and not a Scribus problem. The Open sans emoji font displays the emoji correctly. thanks for the help everyone!

That is a global setting which will apply to all new documents you will create. Some global settings could be overwrited by documents settings. Open your file and go to File > Document Setup >Display and adjust the gap.

Thanks for the quick reply. I never knew about that setting--never needed it.

Unfortunately, I tried to change things but nothing worked. It's still the same. I finally returned it to default settings (screenshot attached) but I've still got the problem.

PS: Your English seems fine  :)

You can adjust the gap between pages into File > Perferences >Display > tab Scratch space > and you will see Gaps between pages

General Discussion / SOLVED: Weird display problem
« Last post by MommaBear on September 09, 2017, 10:39:53 pm »
Background: A couple of years ago, I put together an anthology with Scribus. It came out lovely, but there were a few things I'd do differently. So now I've begun work on volume 2 and decided the easiest way to make the tweaks was to start from scratch.

Between the 2 anthologies, my old computer died. But I managed to save the hard drive, and I copied the files over to my new machine--both are Dell Optiplexes.

I'm using Linux Mint KDE 17.1, the same OS as the previous anthology, and Scribus 1.4.3, same (I think) as the previous anthology.

The problem: When I create a new document there are huge gaps between one page (one sheet?) and the next. I've attached a screenshot because I don't even know how to phrase this. Nor could I manage to fit 2 sheets on one screen, the gaps are so big. So what you see is the bottom of page 1 and the tops of pages 2 & 3.

Documents created before the switch to the new Optiplex open up fine, just tiny gaps between sheets. I've been using Scribus for years and never seen anything like this.

Scrolling the mouse between one sheet and the next is hurting my index finger, and this anthology will run about 300 pages.

I cannot fathom what's causing this. Has anyone any ideas?

Maybe a little more explanation can be useful:

In many programs, when you paste a glyph that is not present in the currently selected font, the program automagically inserts a "temporary font change" for that glyph.

For example, in MS Word, if you have a text in Arial and paste a glyph from Wingdings, that glyph will be presented using the Wingdings font, while the rest of the text remains Arial.

In Scribus however, only the character code of the glyph is inserted, so if the glyph is not present in the currently selected font the glyph won't shown.

I think you can try this for example in a text editor like Notepad. In a text editor only the character codes are stored (not the font), so which glyph is shown depends on the font that the text editor uses. This means if two users use different fonts, they may see different glyphs from the same text file.

well, that emoji is so well supported, that it even does not show in my browser : - )

anyway, it works in scribus and it's a guitar!
... i just had to copy paste the square from here into a scribus text frame and select an emoji font. of course.

i've used https://github.com/MorbZ/OpenSansEmoji

and https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/31625/are-there-any-free-emoji-fonts mentions a few more.

of course, you won't be able to use svg fonts in scribus. not yet. i think. so no colors. except black.

I doubt it works fine "everywhere else", what other places did you try?

My guess is that the problem here is that the font used does not contain emojis. Scribus i very strict when it comes to font use and only uses the exact font you have told it to use.
