Beginner Talk / Re: Scribus hide file operation and edit toolbar

You're welcome but I think the "problem" may be with the OS you are using.

There should be a visual clue - in this case, on Windows, a "bar" made of short lines - that shows there is something you can manipulate but it isn't shown on your screenshot. If the visual clue isn't there then most people will not know that there is something they can use.

Or maybe it's just not shown when a menu is open, I don't really know.

General Discussion / Re: Move center of image for rotating
« Last post by GarryP on May 15, 2017, 10:53:21 am »
Apologies, my memory isn't very good. The linked post is for something a bit different than this.

On WIndows, I've just changed the basepoint for an image frame to the centre point and the frame rotates about its centre, so that looks right. However, I can't use the SHIFT key to do anything with the image within the frame, no rotation, no effect at all and I think I've tried every combination of keys/drags/scrolls/clicks.

Adriana, can you explain exactly what you are doing, on what OS, and what you expect it to do please?

Odd. I find my images rotate around the center in my copies of 1.4.6 and in 1.5.1. I cannot see any place to change that - but I'm happy with the rotation about the center.

PDF Generation / Re: ICC and PDF X formatting

hi kat
The one print service wants everything submitted in PDF/X-1a:2001 or PDF/X-3:2002 for colour management reasons. Fair enough, except that the interior of my current edit is in complete grey scale. Scribus colour management menus will not allow you to select the X types of PDF because there is no colour to manage.

unfortunately i couldn't work out a way to use a grayscale profile with scribus so far – the following workaround did the trick:
  • first, you should upgrade to scribus 1.4.6 (or at least 1.4.4, the first version with support for .pdf/x-1a…)
  • apply the 'grayscale' filter to your images ('extras' → 'manage images → 'image effects')
  • activate the color management and scribus will offer .pdf/x-1a in the .pdf export window – select it!
the resulting .pdf file should be a cmyk file, but with three empty channels – at least if all your text and graphic elements are pure shades of black.

PDF Generation / ICC and PDF X formatting (Solved)
« Last post by katalia369 on May 14, 2017, 08:43:21 pm »
I have been working a side job for several years now as an editor and pre-press agent for a small publisher. Before I was in windows but finally was able to find a system of linux with apps that I could use for this purpose and converted everything over. YAY MINT!

I am running:
Scribus 1.4.3
LibreOffice 5.1.5.2
Mint 17.3
Cinnamon 2.8.8 64 Bit
AMD Athlon Dual Core 4850B
4GB RAM
All plugged into an Asus m2n68-se2

Its all older hardware but it is my nice stable workhorse.

So I create and edit files in LibreOffice, then load them over to Scribus for formatting to page size, printer bleeds, margins, etc. After this I attempt to use Scribus to convert the files to PDF for the printer.

That's where it gets tricky. The one print service wants everything submitted in PDF/X-1a:2001 or PDF/X-3:2002 for colour management reasons. Fair enough, except that the interior of my current edit is in complete grey scale. Scribus colour management menus will not allow you to select the X types of PDF because there is no colour to manage.  ???

SO I need to find either
A) another program to suit my needs for this print service or
B) a way to trick Scribus into bringing up colour management options for grey scale interiors

Any help/hope what-so-ever is greatly appreciated.

I'm slightly confused, how do you denote a new paragraph without a carriage return?

"Carriage return" is really not a concept when using Scribus, when you hit Enter you are inserting a "paragraph break", which means you are ending the current paragraph and starting a new.

Paragraph styles are applied paragraph by paragraph. This is not unique to Scribus, every Word processing application will work like this.

Thanks. It's still the same for 1.5.2 as you described.

Unfortunately, no. For images the rotation origin is always - currently, as for 1.4.6 - at the top left. This is something that has been asked for in the past: http://forums.scribus.net/index.php/topic,2233.0.html

On 1.4.6, you should be able to right-click at the left-hand end of the "file" toolbar and un-check "File" from the pop-up menu. (On Windows - and from what I remember on OS X too - there is a visual "bar" which doesn't seem to be showing on your screenshot.) Whether this still applies on 1.5.2 I don't know.
