Beginner Talk / French documentation with canadian work
« Last post by nantesweb on August 15, 2017, 01:30:28 pm »
Je voulais signaler aux débutants comme moi sur Scribus que la documentation en français est disponible grâce à un travail de nos amis canadien.

Je dois dire que la documentation est vraiment très bien faite, je dois dire que c'est typiquement pour ça qu'on aime le logiciel libre.

J'ai à titre personnel l'intention de mettre en forme plusieurs livres que j'ai écris sur Scribus.

Merci à la communauté

I wanted to tell beginners like myself about Scribus that the documentation in French is available thanks to the work of our Canadian friends.

I have to say that the documentation is really very well done, I must say that is typically why we like free software.

I personally intend to format several books I have written on Scribus.

Thanks to the community

those settings for the text tool in the document settings should probably be removed.

i don't think they have any effect.

on the other side, i think that the same settings in the preferences will be used to create the default styles for future documents.

in your case, you can change the default style in "edit > styles...".
this will correctly set the formatting used for new (and probably also the existing, where you have not applied any formatting) text frames.

Hello.  I'm using 1.4.6 on Windows 10 and have encountered a problem.  When I go to File -> Document Setup I am able to change the text under tools to what I want, but when I try to enter new text in the document it uses the default.  I have also tried to change the default text under File -> Preferences -> Tools to match what I want but that hasn't worked either.  I'd really appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction as I haven't yet found a solution here or on the web in general.

Thanks for your time.
I'll have my husband try that and see if it works. Thank you.

you should be able to do that with the scribus generator:

there are some details in the description and it promises that more is shown in the linked video tutorial.

is it what you are looking for?

I use Scribus to create labels for my jam business. My husband wrote a script that runs in the command line and generates my labels with the proper names, ingredients, and dates. But we haven't been able to figure out a quick way to insert the nutrition labels since they are pictures (.jpg) and not text. Currently, I'm going through and putting them in one at a time after the rest of the label information has been generated. But when I have really large productions runs in a specific week, that takes forever. Is there a way to either select multiple image frames and "get image" so that they all have the same image? Or even better, to use Scribus Generator to find the proper image files and put them in the correct places?

Hi all,

was there any discussion about some paid developers who will work permanently on Scribus? I think such developers can speed up the release cycle and allow a bit more planning if someone is working 8 hours per day on Scribus. Some big projects, like Blender or Mozilla are working with this model.
One other model would be like feature based crowd funding with freelancer. I think Krita dis something like that in the past.

It is also no big deal to create a wordpress theme out of this just to reuse the existing infrastructure.

I wrote my second book 2012-2013 in English and German in the same document (layer switching with general, english, german)
416 pages DIN A5 with many graphics. Sent the PDF direct to the printing company to China. All worked well.

This had been done by different 1.4 versions.

Last year, I moved from Windows 8 to Linux Ubuntu 16.0.4

Just had to install some fonts more and my book looked like in the Windows version of Scribus.
