Beginner Talk / Re: Import character formatting while keeping own styles
« Last post by GarryP on May 05, 2017, 05:06:23 pm »
Hmm... I seem to have been mistaken about applying paragraph styles overriding character styles. Oh well. Live and learn.

I'm sure it would be possible to map LibreOffice styles to Scribus character styles but I've no idea how difficult it would be to code or how easy it would be to use. I imagine a lot of people will have different ideas about how it should work depending on what they want it to do (and that's a discussion I want to keep out of).

Thank you!
It seems it's related to design decision:
https://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=8772#c43878
But:
Quote
- applying a paragraph style reset direct formatting applied on selected paragraph and direct formatting applied on paragraph characters. Applied character styles are preserved.
So maybe there is way to somehow map "LibreWriter bold" into scribus character style...?

Thank you, got it!

Text and Typography / Re: Show text control characters setting does not work
« Last post by utnik on May 04, 2017, 09:16:18 pm »
hi southwindows
…I went to File/Preferences/Display and placed a check next to "Show text control characters".  They were not visible when I returned to the document…

with 'preferences', you define your standard settings for new documents.
the settings of an existing document can be changed with 'file' → 'document setup → '…'

…the two different menu entries can be a bit confusing for scribus beginners.

Text and Typography / Show text control characters setting does not work
« Last post by southwindows on May 04, 2017, 07:04:41 pm »
I just installed Scribus 1.5.3svn on a Windows 7 machine.

I prefer to see tab and paragraph markers as I work, so I went to File/Preferences/Display and placed a check next to "Show text control characters".  They were not visible when I returned to the document I was working on, so I quit Scribus and restarted; but the change did not take effect even with a restart.

Am I missing something?  Thanks!

Beginner Talk / Re: Has my trim line moved?

You're welcome Les.

I don't use bleeds or get things printed so I don't really know what effects(s) changing the gap between pages has on the final product but it would make sense to me that Scribus should export what you can see so that if what you can see on-screen looks right then what is exported should be right.

The amount of bleed depends on the printing process and print shop - as far as I know - so it should be changeable regardless of what's on the page, as long as you account for the change.

Maybe an expert in this area can give more information if I've not given a full account of what happens.

...it's probable that you will need to change the distance between your pages.

Go to "File -> Document Setup / Display" and change the "Gap Between Pages / Horizontal" setting to be the sum of whatever your left and right bleed values are (or greater if you need a bigger gap for whatever reason)

Thanks Garry, now it looks better. I just hope it's still going to have the right page setup when it hits the publisher's desk as I had to change the inside bleed to 0.125in, as per that for the outside, top & bottom bleeds (it was 0.000in on their template.

User Interface / Re: Scribus UI/UX improvements

micker, i don't want to turn your offer down!

just warn you, that getting scribus to compile on windows is hard work, since very few people have done it (for the scared one: one of the guys in the team does create the .exe! so it's that scribus can and will be compiled on windows!), the process to get all the pieces together is rather tedious and you have to know a bit visual studio to get there.

if you have those skills (or want to acquire them), you're very welcome to try it out (and improve the documentation on how to get Scribus to compile).

the starting point is here:

https://github.com/scribusproject/scribus/blob/master/BUILDING_win32_msvc.txt


on the other side, the easiest way to test scribus with "indigodock" patches to run on a windows computer is:

- install the latest ubuntu in a virtualbox
- install the development scribus from a ppa
- fetch and run the indigo scribus appimage created by the continuous integration (travis)

i / we can help you a bit with both ways... but it's you who will have to do the hard work : - )

have a wonderful evening

micker, do you know how to compile on windows with visual studio (or eventually with cygwin)?

if not, sadly windows is often the hardest platform for compiling many open source projects...
