Layout Issues / Layout image over image
« Last post by Wido on September 20, 2018, 02:26:08 pm »
Hi all! I just registered, because I've been having troubles to understand how to layout image over image.

What I've done is pretty simple, in the same layer, I have two image frames, and I put one over the other. Now, to make it on nice, I've added a 3mm line to both image frames, to give some space.

The thing that bother me is that the line goes in both directions from the frame bother, so the aliment against the grid is offset by 1,5mm. And the added text, which is indeed aligned to the grid, makes things look worse

Now, the other problem is that I already have a 190 pages doc with this same issue, so editing one image at the time to add frame will be to much pain

The question would be, how to make lines grow to the inside of the frame? Is that's not possible, is it possible to have a separating line when overlapping images?

Cheers!

hi p_persson

you need to split the poster on pages 2 and 7 and place it in two different frames.
the other one shares a common spread – no need to split…

Thanks for replying to my question.

I was just thinking that the company who prints the broschure wants a complete 8-page, one pdf-file and not individual pdf-pages that they have to put together as one broschure.

In Scribus you can mix pages of different size.
Just pick the isze when creating a new page...

Concerning the colors: in page layout most people have to use a specific set of colors, which they can import or create in Scribus.
"Edit > Colors" lets you create your colors.

In the preferences, you can also pick a different set of color that will be created by default... but i'm not sure, it's a good idea to use bigger sets...

Are there any images in this file? If so and they are large and resized this may be the cause.
Has there been any recent updates to OSX? Something may be broken (or fixed) in an update that causes this issue.

Layout Issues / 2 x A3-posters in an 8 page A4 layout
« Last post by p_persson on September 19, 2018, 07:01:20 pm »
How do I create a broschure that has 8 pages i A4 size and containing 2 x A3 posters ?

The posters should be on  page 2 and 7, 4 and 5.

Also how do I add colour pads in Scrubus, after installing the software there is only 10 to 15 colors to choice from.

Linux / Re: Weird ux scale when installing scribus 1.5.3 on debian 9
« Last post by a.l.e on September 19, 2018, 10:04:36 am »
well, i have to suppose that i have an insane resolution and you just have a higher resolution : - )

you can control the size of the widgets by disabling the qt autoscaling and setting a specific scale:

you can create a small script that starts scribus with a good scale:

export QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0
export QT_SCALE_FACTOR=2
scribus

where you can replace the 2 by the factor that best suits you. depending on your monitor,

Hey ! Sorry for the late answer and really thank you for answering !

I. Never. Thought, about putting the toolbar on the left, and it changes my life. Thank you !
But it doesnt change the fact that my icons seem wayyy bigger than yours.

If you say that it's a bug relative to high res support then I'll just wait : )
But isn't weird that older version did support my hq screen while the new doesn't ? (noob question)

Anyway thanks again !

We see a fertile mind at work. I don't know how long it will take me to catch up.
I will plug along in Dragonfly's dust trail. Hasta pronto.
