Beginner Talk / Scrivener integration
« Last post by Dewdman42 on Today at 06:08:36 pm »
New potential Scribus user here, so please forgive me if this is too obvious of a question.  what is the best way to integrate Scribus with Scrivener?  I'd like to write my words in Scrivener and in many cases apply as much formatting as possible in Scrivener, but then flow the results into Scribus for more advanced layout.

What are people doing to achieve an automation for this?

I notice that with pandoc, scrivener can produce ICML.  Does scribus understand ICML yet?  Or perhaps people have found a better way?

PDF Generation / Re: Failed to embed the PDF file
« Last post by ajytojen on Today at 04:39:36 pm »
Thanks for your reply.

I compiled the latest version from svn (1.5.5 r22550). I can import the pdfs as vector files and it works, although for some pdfs the text is missing...

If I try to embed the pdfs as previously, it still fails. However, there is more debugging output in the terminal and it seems that the problem is indeed linked to podofo:

Code: [Select]
embed list: ""
subset list: ""
outline list: ""
PoDoFo error, falling back to raster!

I have podofo 0.9.5-2 installed and it seems to be working fine. If I try `podofopdfinfo test.pdf` with the file that I embedded, no problem is detected (correct page count as well):

did you read the tooltip attached to the "embed" option?
do you fulfill all the conditions?
It just says that this will not take into account the colorspace of the pdfs, but I didn't enable color management anyway.

I have sent a file from March 2018 to a.l.e . That file was the base for next issue edited in May 2018. It is important to say that the error occured in 1.5.3 but in connection with the windows 2018-03 update.

i got jean to have a look at this thread and he noticed what is the likely issue:

"you" seem to have opened a 1.5.4 file with 1.5.3...
that might have triggered the issue!

please be aware that:

- there is no promise of compatibility between development branches (it mostly works ok, but there is no promise made! on the other side, much more effort is done for the upgrades from a stable version to the next...)
- it's not "possible" to add a warning in 1.5.3 when opening a file created with 1.5.4 (1.5.3 is a "dead" branch that does not get any updates anymore)

1.5.x can correctly include your pdf.
so the pdf is correct and scribus can use it.

did you read the tooltip attached to the "embed" option?
do you fulfill all the conditions?

i don't know the details about the embedding of pdf, but i could imaging it's done with podofo... is podofo installed on your system?

ulfa, it's about finding out what has happened and trying to identify the bug.

all colors in your .sla are in LAB format and the L and A values are zeroed.

it would be interesting to know if you always had the colors in LAB format or if they originally were RGB.
since most colors come from SVG files, i would guess that they used to be RGB...

that's way it would be interesting to see an older .sla and know from you if you did change any color setting inbetween.

I searched the wiki and the forum, but didn't find these terms.

You should have searched for "imposition", because that is the correct term for arranging pages onto a sheet.

Thanks Nermander.
     I also searched online for a terminology resource, but didn't find anything that seemed very detailed. Any suggestions for that?

PDF Generation / Failed to embed the PDF file
« Last post by ajytojen on May 20, 2018, 07:20:12 pm »
Hi all,

When exporting a project containing a PDF inserted in a Image Frame as PDF with the option "Embed PDF & EPF files (EXPERIMENTAL)" enabled, the resulting file has a rasterized version of the PDF.

During the export, scribus outputs: "Failed to embed the PDF file" in the console. I have scribus 1.4.7 on arch linux.

I tried with several pdfs (I attached a test pdf and the resulting export) and the problem persists.
I also tried to export the project on a different machine (Linux Mint) with scribus 1.4.6 and it works fine...

Any ideas of what could be the problem and how I could debug it?

Thanks

I have been doing manual "printer spreads" for years (early 90's Amiga DTP), two years ago I sent in a project and the printer printed in "reader spread" and I didn't notice it on the proof, that really sucked.
I had never known the term Imposition or that software could do it for you
