General Discussion / Re: Scribus in a workflow? (text issues)
« Last post by a.l.e on June 12, 2018, 11:28:28 am »
hi fairmiles,

i'm following your write ups and -- in parallel -- i'm creating a set of files for reproducing the single behaviors:

- with detailed instructions on how to reproduce
- a description of the current results and
- a list of improvements that are necessary or nice to have

i'm starting with the html import, since it's a bit easier to create the demo files. but i plan to do the same files for odt, too.

i'll make the repository public as soon as i consider that the structure is definitive and i will then welcome contributions!

and concerning @mnavij concern about importing xml files: i would first get the html import straight and then see if there is a real need for some solution for custom xml...
what exactly do you want to do with xml wthat cannot be done with some python scripting (python can read xml and there is a scribus API for python) or with html?

bonjour michel

if the problem persists, please consider uploading a sample scribus file (collected for output with the font in use) and the pdf you have generated from it.

may i ask you what are you using the print preview for?

the tool you are looking at is not a print preview (despite its name) .

the print preview most people are looking for is:

view > preview mode (alt-ctrl-p)

on the other side, if ghostscript is installed through your package manager, i don't see a reason why scribus would not recognize it... strange.

Welcome PeterLinux

Could you post a screenshot of what you are seeing and maybe post the pdf file if you do not mind.  Also which OS (I am assuming Linux), if so which Distro?  I just put a pdf in Scribus 1.4.6 in Linux Mint 18.3 with no issues.  Just guessing but it might be a font issue where the fonts are not embedded in the pdf...

Hello, I'm a total newbie to Scribus.

Scribus-Version 1.4.6
03 Januar 2016
Build ID: C-C-T-F-C1.14.6-64bit
Ghostscript-Version: 9.18

I open a PDF file with Scribus and in Scribus the text isn't shown. I can only see the first letter of each line. So I definitively haven't WYSIWYG!

Is this a bug? Or is it intentionally to save processor ressources?

How can I see the whole text and get closer to WYSIWYG?

Kind regards

Yes, but a file generated with Autocad works well with adobe.

It does not print a layer if it is disabled.

Oui mais un fichier généré avec Autocad fonctionne bien avec adobe.

Il n'imprime pas un calque si il est désactivé.

That's how I did, I select the print icon in scribus, but later with the PDF reader we can not choose. He keeps this value.

Even if we disable a layer in the pdf reader it prints anyway.

With the default Ubuntu Evince reader it works but not with Acrobat Reader or Nuance PDF Reader.


C'est comme ça que j'ai fait, je sélectionne l'icone imprimer dans scribus, mais après  avec le lecteur PDF on ne peut plus choisir. Il garde cette valeur.

Même si on désactive une couche dans le lecteur pdf elle s'imprime quand même.

Avec le lecteur par défaut d'Ubuntu Evince ça fonctionne mais pas avec Acrobat Reader ou Nuance PDF Reader.

Hi, everyone

I have fresh xubuntu 18.04  and install scribus, works perfectly but i can't see the 'print preview'.
I have installed ghostscript and on 'preferences>external tools' is set 'gs' as postscript interpreter, but i don't know what is the problem.


PD.: I attach a screenshot.
