Layout Issues / Re: Text Flow Around Frames
« Last post by enzogian on May 31, 2018, 11:43:05 am »
When using the arrow, it increases the path only from one side of the square and not the four sides... (?)

I really hope they could implement the text flowing action for multiple selection. I can see Scribus allows change of properties like shadows, line colors and box colors..in multiple selection..

Thanks a lot Ale, the arrow issues was something I did not catch (was not so evident to me as when I apply it it seems is taking effects only to one side of the frame and not all around the four sides.. I would keep checking why this happens but is certainly a big progress for me knowing the function of this arrow.. (Thanks really)

1. it is common in scribus that actions can only be applied to one item at a time...
    but you can create a group...

2. if i understand you correctly, it's the arrow button in the shape dialog:

Layout Issues / Text Flow Around Frames
« Last post by enzogian on May 30, 2018, 09:06:49 pm »
Hi, I wonder a couple of things related to text flowing around frames:

1- Can the "Text flowing around frames" action be applied to multiple selected frames ?  I can see it works only by selecting one frame at a time.

2- Where can I insert offset numeric values (separation space from text to frame's border). I have been looking intensively but I have been successful only by editing the contour line manually. (could it be related to the version and platform I am using ? I am using 1.5.4 in Windows 10)

Many thanks and regards,

This morning I've deleted three posts that I considered to be spam.

They were replies to older threads, that were copy pasted from other websites (the Scribus wiki, the Libreoffice forum, ...)

They were somehow on topic, but not really.

If such keep on showing up, I'll also delete the users that have posted them.

I'll try to be careful, and I hope that I won't delete genuine posts. If that happen, please pardon me and write a new post, in a way that it cannot be filled as spam.

Have fun

hi edradour...

well, i've tried to give you a hint ("put a column guide (see the guides manager)") ... but it's often hard to know, how much the reader already knows about scribus already, how long a post should be, and  how much time i should invest into it...

you have created a nice script, and probably learned a few things: i hope you will be able to create more script to improve your workflow!

ciao

Layout Issues / Re: Problem with Frame geometry reference point
« Last post by utnik on May 30, 2018, 01:55:30 am »
hi jc

check 'view' → 'rulers relative to page' and everything should be back to the standard.

Layout Issues / Problem with Frame geometry reference point
« Last post by JCPennywise on May 30, 2018, 01:21:01 am »
I have only been using Scribus for a few months and so far have not had a problem I couldn't work out, until now.

I am currently working on a 700 page document and everything was fine until I had my assistant proof read and error correct.

Now the reference point for all geometry (XYZ) coordinates throughout the document seem to relate back to the same reference point instead of being set to each page.

To better explain, what use to be the case is that no matter which page I was on the top left hand corner of the margin frame was at 60pt X - 60pt Y. Now the coordinates are different on every page, and since it is a large document I have page with coordinates like -682pt X - 465730pt Y etc.

I have looked but cannot find a setting to change this!!! How can I revert the document back to the previous setting where each page had the same coordinates?

Thanks in advance.
JC.

Yes, looks very similar - if I'd known it existed or where to find it.

The built in page > manage guides does more than my routine, and does it better.

"horrizontal" - if that's my only spelling mistake, I'm doing well ...

Thanks

i got it to run... you seem to have done the same as is already in "page > manage guides | columns and rows" ....



or am i missing something?

and for the small details:

- "horizontal", not "horrizontal" : - )
