It's probably not an ideal situation but you could create a document with the pages as you want them and then import that document into another document as many times as you want. You can create a two-page document and import it eight times to get a sixteen-page document, or you could import the two-page document twice to get a four-page document that can then be imported four times, etc. Create your "standard sections" in their own documents and then import the sections as you need them.

Many thanks for the reply, I did run through the menu prior to start and tried to read any info I could find, but trying to take in so much info is going to take time. If the wiki on the release notes would have given the path for the new UI i.e. windows/text properties or F3 I would have found it. It is the same with loading GS files, a recommendation to load them first would have helped.

I fully appreciate the work the developers, contributors give freely to these projects and hope that I may be able to contribute once I become familiar with Scribus.

as a user of a development version, you should at least flip through the main menu items once – and i would suggest to read the release notes as well…
by checking either of them you'll find the new 'text properties' palette.

Beginner Talk / V1.5.3 Text Properties
« Last post by icrhodes1 on December 16, 2017, 10:58:27 am »
I am new to Scribus having used Serif Pagemaker for a number of years. Changing mainly to have EPS options for sending to other design professionals. I find it strange not having docked control boxes, but when I get my second monitor operational it should help. I have a problem with text frame properties in this version, not having used the stable version, as I cannot see a Text option on the properties box? I have Drop, Shadow etc but no text. Is this a know bug in this version or is there a list of reported bugs anywhere to refer to. I like the new version because of it's layout and additional features, but feel I may have to revert to the stable version to get used to scribus first

Thanks guys, so much! I got the layers folder back. I'm not sure what I did, I just looked at the bottom of the view, and saw the top of it over the usual bottom of the program. I'll definitely come back to this page is I run into the problem again!
Beginner Talk / Re: Dotted leaders list

I got it!

I had to prepare the input txt file with the two columns (name and number) separed by a TAB.
In scribus create a new text frame and load the above textfile.
Select the above text frame.
Then near Colums and Text Distance select the "Tabulators button":
Now appears its poup up and it is possible to set a tabultaor just by clicking on the "ruler bar"...
And select filling character > dot or something similar, I have the italian version and I can read: "Carattere di riempimento", then I select "punto" (it should be point or dot in english).
Finally by pressing "OK" the result will be shown and applied, with few tries it became clear how it works.

So finally I solved.
Anyway I think it'is not explained enough how this "Tabulators" tool really works. A bit more detailed guide in the wiki would be greatly appreciated!  :)
Beginner Talk / Dotted leaders list
« Last post by scriber on December 15, 2017, 06:55:08 pm »
I have to write a list with each record is in the form

Name1.......................................... 2345
Name2.......................................... 6789

And so on...
Thanks to my bad english, I'm not sure this is correctly called a "dotted leaders" list. But hope the above example is self-explanatory enough.
How can I obtain a list in a such style?

Thanks in advance!   :)

Hello all,

°°°UPDATE°°° found a work around fix, though it would still be easier were
Scribus to have the copy multiple pages function.

Original message (now redundant):

I have a similar issue to JUSTFAX. My book bears the same text
frames and image frames throughout, I.E: the odd pages are more or less
but not quite, mirror images of the evens,
and this pair of pages I want repeated over all 300 pages of my book.

Making master pages of the
first two sides I designed,
I.E: pages 1 and 2
does not work as I cannot edit into them

So, the design of my pages is the same throughout
I just need to edit the text frames each and every page
with different text

So, I have designed my ideal mirror pages,
but now i want 150 pairs, each the same; 300 sides/pages.

I was surprised there is no copy multiple pages tool.
There IS a copy page tool, but for just 1 side(1 page)
In a mirror pages file this pastes 1 page at the end.
Good, yes, but then I have to paste a left,
then I go back and copy and paste a right;
then I go back an copy and paste a left... ad infinitum, ad 300.
Working with mirror pages it seems I have to do this.
Or is it just me being a novice?

 I have tried Importing pages but it tends to import 1 page and in a very skewed way
so that the text frames are moved and end up in a different position.

Kind regards to one and all
