Layout Issues / Re: Import/Open InDesign .idml or .indd files
« Last post by GarryP on November 16, 2017, 10:43:49 am »
If Scribus can open a file of a certain type then it should be listed in the "Files of type" drop-down box in the Open dialog. If the type of file isn't listed then you can be fairly sure that it can't be opened.

This might be of some use: http://forums.scribus.net/index.php?topic=767.0
And here's the same question answered elsewhere: https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/96032/export-from-indesign-for-scribus

the feature is in 1.5.3 but is still experimental.

in 1.4.6 you have to do them manually. but it's almost as fast as using the automatic ones...

Layout Issues / Vertical Hanging Wall Calendar for MagCloud
« Last post by 24Peter on November 16, 2017, 08:51:02 am »
I am creating a vertical (the pages are square) hanging wall calendar for printing with MagCloud. It is laid out with a photo on top for each month and the monthly grid on the bottom. It looks like the MagCloud wire bound square products are set to print left to right like a book. I noticed in the Document Setup for my Scribus document, the default is binding on left. What settings do I use for the calendar I want the binding on top of the bottom page and bottom of the top page. Would I need to rotate the Frames on each page 90 degrees for the correct printing orientation?

And is it a single page or doubled sided setup? Anyone know?

Beginner Talk / Get File > Dialogue Box > settings?
« Last post by dezcat on November 16, 2017, 06:07:24 am »
when I get a file, like an image, I like to have list view.

But each time I get image, I have to click that icon, drag out the dialog box so that I can see the files..is there a way to set that up and have Scribus "remember" the last config until the User does something different?

Thank you!

Beginner Talk / Re: Advice for Newbie on printing and PDF outputs inc CMYK

I would recommend looking at the conversion with Krita beforehand, it will save color shift headaches later.…

…unless the printer request color profiles, I would recommend against using it.

here i disagree!
with activated color management, you'll see a simulation of the printer colors on screen. this might not be as accurate as with a hardware calibrated monitor, but it is as accurate as it will be when you work in a cmyk workflow with a tool like krita on the same monitor. but you will have the same dull colors in the .pdf file for screen use. (even the widest cmyk color space is much smaller than srgb…)

You would have to color calibrate your monitor with a calibration tool…

yes, that's the best! – but there's a wide zone between hardware calibration and just looking, what happens. i have a professionally printed testsheet and the same document as a .pdf file to optically adjust my screen, and i work quite a bit away from any window. with this arrangement i'm set good enough for my needs – at least much better than with deactivated color management…

…there are options for 
Simulate Printer on screen
&
Convert all colours to printer space.
If my ICC is set to FOGRAS39 won't this display on my monitor as an approximation of how it prints?

i think, you got it right!

Hi mnawij thanks for your reply.
Yes there is a big difference in those examples, thanks for those.
In Settings, Colour management, Rendering Intent, there are options for 
Simulate Printer on screen
&
Convert all colours to printer space.
If my ICC is set to FOGRAS39 won't this display on my monitor as an approximation of how it prints?
If that works it would save me having to convert each individual jpg to CMYK with that all being done in the save to PDF.
That way can I also produce a PDF for viewing on a screen by re-running PDF production with the RGB instead of CMYK rendering (I need to be able to produce both)
Thanks, Tony

Installation and Setup / Re: Delete standard Printer becouse of priner margins
« Last post by mnawij on November 16, 2017, 12:17:20 am »
Hi bufu, do not click on the printer margin button, you set the margins right above that button.  That button is only if you have a specific printer that you know you are going to use and would like Scribus to set those defaults for you.  I agree it is a bit confusing.

Cheers,

mnawij
