Beginner Talk / Picture quality in pdf
« Last post by Edwerf on December 04, 2017, 11:49:48 am »
I just started with Scribus on Ubuntu but I am not able to get nice pictures in my pdf. The pictures are not sharp and too dark. On internet I read that you need 96 dpi only for documents printed on screen. But on my pdf I have to set 400 dpi to get sharp pictures on screen.

Could you please inform me about the minimum resolution/settings for the picture size of 572.50 pt x 246.56 pt?

Text and Typography / Re: Nested Listing and Numbering

Welcome to the forum Googly Googly.

As far as I know, this sort of thing isn't possible with Scribus, except when done manually. Bullets and numbering are very basic in Scribus.

You could get the text how you want it using LibreOffice and import it but that's not a very efficient solution.

These comments relate to the current stable version of Scribus - 1.4.6 - but I have no idea if later (developmental) versions do anything different. Maybe one of the 1.5.x users can advise differently. (This shows some promise: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfpZXmqrXRY)

You could try a script - e.g. https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Bullets_and_numbered_lists - but you would probably have to mess around with it to get it working the exact way you want and that might take more time and/or effort than just doing it manually.

P.S. You might be able to wrangle the method given here https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Sequentially_Numbered_Items_-_Basic_Method to do something like what you want but I don't have high hopes.

Text and Typography / Nested Listing and Numbering
« Last post by Googly Googly on December 04, 2017, 05:45:00 am »
I want to create the following type of nested numbering in Scribus, not manually.
Main points:
--> I want a list which continues independent of any other style, section, page etc.
--> If desired the list must depend on some variable like other style, list, heading, page, section, form etc.
--> There should be an option whether this list has any bearing on the numbering pattern of any Heading or listing.
--> It should be possible to restart the list anywhere and with any starting number.
--> There should be an option by which one can include more such lists nested inside any of the Heading or Listing.

Here is the sample output which I want:

1. Heading-1 Chapter Name

1.1 Heading-2 Topic-1 name

Paragraphs- Scribus is a great sofware. Scribus is a great sofware. Scribus is a great sofware. Scribus is a great sofware. Scribus is a great sofware. Scribus is a great sofware.
The following benefits we derive:
1. Its free
2. It has strong community support
3. There are regular updates
4. There are regular upgrades

Paragraphs- Scrubus community is very helpful. Scrubus community is very helpful. Scrubus community is very helpful. Scrubus community is very helpful. Scrubus community is very helpful.

A wonderful tool.Styles is a speciality. A wonderful tool. Styles is a speciality. A wonderful tool.Styles is a speciality. A wonderful tool. Styles is a speciality. A wonderful tool.

Beginner Talk / Edit Image, Scribus says "Gimp already open."
« Last post by dezcat on December 03, 2017, 08:05:09 pm »
which...good to know, but I'm not asking for the status of Gimp; I want to edit the image.

Is there a way to instruct Scribus that, whether the image editor is open or not, "Edit image..." means "open image in editor"  ?

thank you!

Text and Typography / Re: remove formatting from all text in document
« Last post by GarryP on December 03, 2017, 02:49:53 pm »
Welcome to the forum Christian.

Unfortunately I don't think it's possible to fully remove all formatting from multiple text frames at the same time.
Once you select multiple text frames the Text tab of the Properties Palette becomes unavailable and you can't do a Find/Replace across multiple frames.

You can change the line and fill formatting of multiple frames but there's no way that I know of to change the text formatting en masse like that. It's not something I've ever needed to do so maybe someone else has a solution that I've missed.

If you have been using styles you can delete the relevant styles - making a copy of the style first to keep it for later - but that's messy and might not work properly (I've not done any tests).

There might be a way to do it with a script but someone else would have to advise on that.

P.S. All of the above relates to 1.4.6, I don't know if 1.5.x is any different.

Text and Typography / remove formatting from all text in document
« Last post by caigner on December 03, 2017, 11:48:00 am »
Hello!

Is there a way to remove all formatting from all text frames?

I have several text frames and I would rather have an option to remove all formatting in one go than to select each text frame individually and remove the formatting from each text line within that frame.

Kind Regards,
Christian

Beginner Talk / Re: Scaling an image after cropping?
« Last post by dezcat on December 02, 2017, 09:16:09 pm »
OK..wanted to share this.I may have found a workflow to do what I'm talking about...

Since Scribus fields can execute math, you simply scale up the size of the image box, then apply the same multiplier to the image size.

In plain language, if I crop the image the way I like it, but want to enlarge or shrink that *crop,*, I multiply the size of the box, say by 2 (link the aspect ratio) then do the same for the image (aspect ratio also linked).

The only problem with this method is that the image moves relative to the box, but all you have to do is scootch it over.

The image doesn't always change position inside the image box after doing this procedure..I'll have to experiment more to see if there's a pattern.

Of course, mind the "center of change" when resizing the box..if you want the top left corner to stay put, click that radio button.

Not ideal, but way less fiddling around than what I'd been doing before, and the sizing gets nailed.

Yes, in most cases I think the scrapbook provides what many people expect from Master Pages, as long as they learn that you can doubleclick scrapbook items to insert them in their original position.
