Text and Typography / Re: Re-create font cache?
« Last post by a.l.e on May 24, 2017, 09:12:06 am »
uninstalling/reinstalling scribus is the solution to no known problem.

i personally, don't know how to get the fontcache to be rebuild on windows, but what you can do is:

- close scribus
- delete the settings
- start scribus

now, you have to find out how to remove the settings in your version of windows...
Text and Typography / Re-create font cache?
« Last post by southwindows on May 24, 2017, 12:39:52 am »
I made some changes to a font and re-installed it.  Windows programs other than Scribus 1.5.3 are using it OK.

File/Preferences/Fonts shows that Scribus is using the old version.  I know that it's supposed to check for changed fonts on startup but somehow it's not picking up this change.  Is there a way to force it to re-create the font list?  Or some other way way to deal with this, short of uninstalling/reinstalling the program?

Sorry if a recover this old thread.

I tried to run the script with Scribus-svn under linux and with Scribus-dev under Mac OS.... but crashes on both systems.

I really need the Pantone palette to use with scribus.

Any idea or workaround?

Tnx a lot,

yes, my bad.

i probably wrote hyphenation and was thinking of spell checking.

my suggestion not to follow your hint still holds.
please, don't follow that advice and do not rename files that have been installed by the application or the system.

you can do it -- of course! -- as part of your personal research or hack (as richard was doing!), but don't do it because somebody wrote about it in the internets!

The topic was spell checking and not hyphenation.

I ran a number of experiments trying to get spelling dictionaries to make sense.
Nothing made sense, so I made a hack.

ciao adriana

in such a case, it would be nice if you could attach the scribus file.

on the other side, if you paste an image into scribus, the image will be embedded in the document.

if you want to check the quality of the image, you can right click on it, disable the embedding of the image, save it on your disk and open it with gimp...
you will then see if the image is good enough...

also, you might want to check the quality of the preview resolution in the context menu...

General Discussion / Story-Editor open at current page
« Last post by mikolaskova on May 18, 2017, 06:34:10 pm »

is there a possibility to open the story-editor somewhere close to the text of the current page?

It's somehow difficult to search the spot to edit some words, sentences...I thought maybe i missed some feature.

Thanks and regards,

Beginner Talk / Blured Image when pasting from Ksnapshot
« Last post by mikolaskova on May 18, 2017, 02:55:50 pm »

when I paste an image from Ksnapshot, it's inserted very blured, bad quality...images copied from elsewhere are alright.

This happens with Scribus 1.5.2 on Kubuntu, with 1.4.6 it pasting images from everywhere works as expected ...

Is this a know problem in 1.5.2?

Thanks and regards

yes, it covers it- there is another request that comes close to this subject.
In general I'm often asked about moving, resizing, rotating the image within the frame (by mouse- numericaly it's possible via image properties palette)

hoi adriana

i really don't know (anymore) what this circle was meant to do... but i would also expect to be used as the center of the rotation and to be draggable.

after having found this old ticket of mine

0008977: respect frame's basepoint when rotating a picture in the frame

i would guess that the feature has never been implemented.

btw, this even older ticket:

0008979: use mouse delta for inline image rotation

seems to cover the other issue you have been having with the rotation...
