PDF Generation / Re: "Use Color Profiles" options in PDF export
« Last post by a.l.e on May 25, 2018, 05:17:17 pm »
i'm trying to find out if you can force scribus to do the conversion despite the fact that the required pdf version seems to have been created exactly for that reason: supporting color management!

if the printer wants CMYK images, there are then chances that you will have to convert the images before importing them into scribus... or use a pdf version that needs the conversion.

i will post a reply if i find out more...

Yes, that is correct. The printer has asked for PDF/X-4 with a specific ICC (which I have installed am using ok) but all of the images should be saved as CMYK. I have tried playing around with some of the settings but can't understand what I need to do to achieve this. So far I have had to try and send them the PDF for them to check - I also can't see which type of images my PDF has myself.

Thanks

pdf/x-4 allows rgb files to be in the resulting pdf...

so i guess, that your question is about forcing scribus to convert all the images to cmyk despite you using pdf/x-4...
am i correct?

Hi,

Did you find an answer to your question?

I am trying to create a PDF/X-4 with a coated ICC and all the images in CMYK but I can't seem to get the images to be created in CMYK, they are always in RGB (the printing company are telling me this). I am using Scribus 1.5.4 downloaded a week or so ago.

Any help please on which options I should use?

Windows / Re: User Interface Scaling
« Last post by a.l.e on May 25, 2018, 10:13:35 am »
if you're using Scribus 1.4.x i fear that there will never be any support for hdpi monitors. (i don't even think Qt4 has support for it)
but it should be possible to manually scale it and nothing will interfere with your efforts to get a usable state.

for Scribus 1.5.x the support is a work in progress.
currently, i have the feeling that the scaling now works rather well... but there is no way to have a smaller interface...
it's not as nice as it could be, but it's definitively usable!

if you want an frame to fill a page, just shift+click (instead of simply clicking) when creating it and it will occupy the whole space around the cursor, up to the first guide or margin.

if you want to extend an existing frame to the right margin, just activate the snapping to guides (it should (almost) always be on... of cours) and pull it there.

if you want to regularly create frames that fills half of the page, you should of course put a column guide (see the guides manager)...
and if it's only about one single frame, you can use the shift-click to fill the page and then change the width of the frame to be "50%" or "width/2".
and if you want a 1 cm gutter in the middle, set it to "width / 2 - .5cm".

Windows / User Interface Scaling
« Last post by jasterisk on May 25, 2018, 06:24:46 am »
Hello,

I'm trying to use Scribus on a Microsoft Surface Book, which has a resolution of 3000 x 2000. Because of this, in order for the device to even be usable, Windows upscales everything (the OS and all of my programs) by 200%. The only issue though is that the 200% scale that is defined in my Windows settings doesn't affect Scribus, which means that Scribus' user interface is almost unreadable and pretty much unusable.

Is there any way to scale up the user interface within Scribus?

Thanks!

"fyi, in scribus you can set the measurement in percents, which is very handy from time to time... or use guide columns (which is often a very useful feature!)"

I think that's what I intended asking for, how to set measuments in percentages.  It is something I often did in InDesign, reading the percentages from the rulers to measure where to set my guides.

(e.g. full page height = 100%, full page width = 100% - but they are not necessarily equal in fixed length measurments (mm, inch, pixel &c))

In scribus you can use the tabulators in the same way as you do in other programs.

I would do that, by creating a paragraph style (edit > style manager) and define a tabulator with dots in there...

hi edradour

i think, i've already seen your question somewhere else but i cannot recall where... and if i replied to it.

basically: i don't think that your wish makes sense.

can you explain us why you would do that?

fyi, in scribus you can set the measurement in percents, which is very handy from time to time... or use guide columns (which is often a very useful feature!)

ciao
