Scribus forums / Re: Italian Scribus community?
« Last post by moresun on February 20, 2018, 08:36:28 pm »
Do you think you can open a general discussion this forum for italian speakers? It will be great for Italian to have a place where find official answers! Maybe we are not so few ;) The scribes Italian version is very well made and I think more and more Italians will use it as now adobe indesign is in suite...
User Interface / problem with applying master page
« Last post by moresun on February 20, 2018, 08:26:43 pm »
If this is no the right place to warn you and ask for fixing, sorry and please move to the right place in the forum.
When I was applying the master page to a certain number of pages, logically I wrote first "from" which page and then "to"...
when typing in the field "to", automatically the field "from" changes as the "to" one... so i had to come back to the "from" field and change anew the infos...

Can you fix this problem or there is a version that has still this bug fixed?

You can:
 - type the coordinates in the Propriety window, using any unit you can think about (and by the way, the current unit you use in the document might influence the displacement you make with direction keys) including arithmetical operations using keywords as "pagewidth", "pageheight" and such.
 - use the window "Espacer et aligner" in order to organize any object(s) in relation to other(s)
 - add "repères" (probably "guides" in the english interface) and use magnetism to stick objects to them.

Garry Thank you for you suggestions! I noticed the problem with mastro because i was drawing a square in a page with a scheme...  I have solved the problem by doing a 3 left or right arrow shift on every page... it was really important for the layout cause it's a book and I have to mantein margin for printings... ( sorry for my english, I never practice it..  :-X )

Thank you, Garry;

I downloaded 1.4.6 via Portable. IS here doesn't support Scribus, so I'm on my own there. I have a new HP running Windows 7 Enterprise, and while it makes some difference what my document units are (inches versus pts) I still can't get fine control when dragging an item by hand.

It's almost as though Scribus is respecting a pixel grid that I can't see and that bears no relation to the design grid I've laid out.

Adobe Illustrator and some other apps have this feature/benefit, but I don't see anything like that in

So, here's my scenario:

8-1/2" x 11" sheet, landscape, with a .35" margin on all sides. I have boxes with borders and I need to line other elements up with the boxes' borders. I can get pretty close with the numeric field, but not perfect and its VERY tedious to use this method.

Thank you for any help!

Hmm, I tried CTRL+D in the one with Fjalla and Arial with Roboto on other pages - I see Arial and Roboto are not embedded (and looks awful).

I changed the Arial back to Open Sans and then set all fonts to embed in the PDF export. This looks perfect! I think I missed the embed step when I was testing Open Sans yesterday.

Thank you! Now at least I know what to look for in Acrobat if it looks wrong.

As has been said above, if you have a double-sided, 3-fold or 4-fold document, you should add and remove pages by 2's, 3's or 4's respectively.

It might help to think about it like this: If you remove one page from a double-sided document you are effectively removing one side of the sheet of paper - or even just part of one side - and that's not something that you can do in reality.

You can add/remove single pages - and Scribus allows this because it's being flexible - but you shouldn't.

Always add/remove the number of pages that make up a "physical unit".

Off-topic Note: While the grid can be useful when drawing geometric shapes it should never be used for page layout. The grid should normally not be displayed and snapping to the grid should be switched off. Learn to use guides instead, they're much more useful for page layout and you can get Scribus to create them automatically according to your requirements.

yes you got it, i've deleted one page during the process.. but applying new page mastro doesn't shift the text frame, as you can see in the image...

You should remain consistent with your choice of document:
 - if it is "simple page" (page simple in the french interface) you can insert whatever number of pages wherever you like
 - but if you're in a "pages en regard" (sorry, I don't know the equivalent in the english interface) you should pay attention so left and right pages don't go on the wrong side! So always add/delete pages in even numbers and in the right places.
