hi ale

'dejavu' is widely spread under linux, and even some windows and mac users work with it.
but as a lot of win and mac users don't care about extending what the os provides, you won't find a common font across the usual plattforms.

well, yes, it was about good (free) fonts that are likely to be installed on somebody's computer...

i guess that the last ones should be (good but not free) fonts that are pre-installed on windows and/or mac...

Hi!

I am using scribus 1.4.6 on Lubuntu 16.04 to create an encrypted pdf file.  I am using adobe reader 11.0.17.9 

In scribus I have created javascripts that create most of the details of my 9 page pdf document form.  The javascripts all work perfectly when I do not use a password.  When I use an owner password with allow changing the document and allow copying text and graphics, I get the following error when I open the document in adobe reader: "SyntaxError: syntax error 1:Doc:open.  I've tried with a few different options, user encryption, owner encryption, . . ., but I always get an error and my javascript does not run.  I have javascript that is supposed to run when the document is opened - that is the javascript that creates all the elements of the form.

When I remove the password, everything works again.

I have tried compatability with pdf 1.4 and pdf 1.5

Would someone please explain this.

I have attached my scribus file, as well as different versions of the pdf (with respect to how passwords are applied).

I thank all in advance for any help you can provide.

Phil

Are upcoming versions of Scribus going to support OSFs, small caps, discretionary ligatures...that sort of font feature?

yes, since the end of last year, the development versions have support for these otf features.

hi leonard

btw, where would ya'll recommend picking up some more good quality fonts?

yes, it's sometimes hard to find free high quality fonts…
the 'linux libertine' and 'biolinum' can be found here.
as i don't know your needs, i can't recommend any specific font. but fontsquirrel is a rich source of partly really good stuff…

Out of all the ones you mentioned utnik the only one installed on my system (Lubuntu 16.0.2) are the Dejavu ones, but those do seem pretty good.

If I recall correct there is no easy way to input them in Scribus, unless the font in question have them for normal numbers.

So if the font has both tabular numbers and old style figures there is no easy way to choose the latter.

How to use text figures (also known as non-lining, lowercase, old style, ranging, hanging, medieval, billing, or antique figures or numerals)?

hi ale


scribus might look for:
  • 'linux biolinum'
  • 'linux libertine'
  • 'linux libertine mono'
  • 'open sans' or 'dejavu sans'
  • or the whole 'dejavu' series ('serif', 'sans', 'mono')
