PDF Generation / Re: Generated PDF prints garbage characters on Windows
« Last post by GarryP on October 23, 2017, 03:21:48 pm »
Unfortunately I can't help with the printing issue - I don't currently have a printer to test it on - but, in case it helps the diagnosis, I can confirm that the "garbage" does not show when the PDF is opened in (on Windows 10 Home 64-bit):
* Acrobat Reader DC 2017
* Firefox 56
* Affinity Designer 1.5.3
* Chrome 62
* Edge 40
* TeXworks 0.6.1

PDF Generation / Generated PDF prints garbage characters on Windows
« Last post by eggz on October 23, 2017, 01:39:58 pm »
Hi - I'm wondering if anyon has come across this problem before...

I'm occasionally asked to produce newsletters, menus etc for local businesses and groups, Scribus is naturally my tool of choice. However after generating the PDF I find that while it displays as expected on Windows 10 in the Reader App, in Edge, in Firefox pdf.js and Chrome, when I print to my Epson WP-4025 I get garbage/random charaters showing up where normal text should be.

This doesnt happen if I print the same PDF from Linux. So for a long time I've just written this off as an annoying printer driver quirk (especially as I sometimes send the PDFs away to be printed and never hear of any problems)

However today I tried printing one of these PDFs at a different location. Again Windows 10, but this time a HP Officejet 7500a. Once again, same random junk at the bottom of the page. Once again, printing using Linux on this printer worked fine.

I've searched the Mantis bug tracker briefly, but couldnt find anything that seemed relevant. I've got a workaround (print from Linux), so I'm just wondering if I'm doing something wrong/have discovered a Windows bug/have discovered a Scribus bug.

Text and Typography / Re: What should I do to hyphenate the text?
« Last post by a.l.e on October 23, 2017, 09:09:50 am »
file > document setup > hyphenator: and pick a language...

then you can select a single (linked set of) text frame(s) and hyphenate it with "extras > hyphenate text"

you have to first pick the right language for the hyphenation (it's not the same as the UI language).

how you do that, depends on the scribus version you're using: which one are you using?

What should I do to hyphenate the text within the text box? When I check the box in Document Setup -> Hyphenator nothing happened.

Thank you for the help.

I eventually found the right paragraph in the doc.
Sorry for inconvenience.

Hello!
I'm responsible for editing concert programs and posters for my choir.
For posters I use GIMP 2, and I would like to use Scribus for programs, instead of PowerPoint, a product I've used for years, but is not really well suited for that purpose.
I've installed Scribus yesterday on my computer and I'm really pleased to use it.
I have of course a lot of things to learn and I'll probably become a regular member of that forum to solve issues which are probably obvious for experienced users but not so easy for newcomers.


In a concert program, I usually present works the following way:
        Robert Schumann                    1810-1856
                Zigeunerleben           
                choir and piano

I cannot succeed to present the composer's name and dates with that format using Scribus paragraph and character styles, i.e.:
- how to have various font sizes and styles in the same paragraph
- how to set a right-tab at the end of a line

Thanks for your help!

MacOS / Re: gimp as plugin

tommylui, is there any specific reason why you're using 1.4.1?
The latest stable version - 1.4.6 - has been out for nearly two years and you can get it from here: https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Download (I would recommend the DMG installation route.)
