Unfortunately I can't replicate the problem you're getting (I've only checked with Scribus 1.4.6 64-bit on Windows 10 though).
See my attached SLA where I've used styles to make things easier to format.
It might give you some idea of what's going wrong with yours.

One thing to keep in mind is that what you're doing with this technique is quite unusual and probably not something that the developers of Scribus were thinking about. It's more of a hack than a recommended practice so this area might not have been thoroughly tested.

looks like something went wrong internally.

if you get it again, you should fill a bug report.

i'm mostly left aligning and/or manually hyphenating, so i have not much experience with the hyphenation tool...

Alright, I restarted scribus now and everything works fine by itself. An explanation would be appreciated, though...? ;)

if you have issues when printing from scribus, just don't do it.

create a pdf and print it.

the "print" menu entry should simply be removed. scribus is not a software made for printing directly, but for creating pdfs that will be professionally printed (and of course you can also print them on your office printer too!).

sorry, if i keep this as short as possible, but it has been discussed so many times before and it won't change in the foreseeable future.
Beginner Talk / Printing Images with transparent Backgrounds
« Last post by Pittini on October 09, 2017, 02:21:23 am »
If i try to print images (png or psd) with transparent background, the transparency is replaced with white (not on screen, just on the print). If i export from scribus (1.5.3) to pdf, everything is fine. How can i print those images directly from scribus? Tnx.

Use \input{myfile} in your LaTeX snippet and put the actual code in myfile.tex (\input is a TeX primitive, which basically just puts the file right there). See for a discussion. HTH, edx.
General Discussion / Getting rid of endless "Possible hyphenation" dialogues?

I am running 1.5.3 svn (1.5.3svn~r22185~20171007 from ubuntu PPA) and IIRC some months before I could hyphenate English text by Extra/Hyphenate Text, and it would just do the hyphenation. Now when I go to hyphenate, the "Possible hyphenation" dialogue will pop up for almost every single word in the text. I tried both with Document Setup / Hyphenator / Hyphenation suggestions on and off, same behavior.

How to just do the hyphenation without any further dialogues? Or is it a regression? Thanks!
General Discussion / Re: How using Lualatex in scribus?
« Last post by eudoxos on October 08, 2017, 11:20:19 pm »
What version? This is 1.5.4 (svn): File/Preferences/External Tools/Render Frames , set LaTeX to "lualatex --interaction nonstopmode". HTH.
That does the job.

The thing I don't get is why, when I add more of these formatted lines, that the amount of text my box will display gets shorter. When I made the first strikeout, the bottom quarter of the text in the box disappeared. Now (after placing it in a couple of spots), only a quarter of the text box will fill with text. It's there, and if I delete the strikeouts it will reappear. I can't make the text box any bigger (it already fills the page).
(I checked: switching to something default like Times New Roman doesn't fix this at all; thought currently I'm using TexGyre Pagella. It shouldn't be overflowing if 3/4 of the box is still empty and available for text. I don't get it.)
(also checked: if I link multiple pages' text frames, it might show one or two lines per entire page of this... I'm not sure this formatting method agrees with Scribus)
