Beginner Talk / Re: Hyphenation in 1.4.6 after using Edit Text tool
« Last post by PemburySinger on January 17, 2018, 12:18:34 pm »
I have attached an image showing what the l-r justified text looks like in the example magazine that comes with the files that one downloads with the tutorial for Scribus. My "Forced Justified" text displays the paragraph ends as previously described. I would like my paragraph ends to look like the example, so need to know where to find the "Plain Justified" option, as this isn't obvious.

Thanks Nermander. Where would I find "Plain Justified"?

If you import the SVG, Scribus should create a new colour for each colour that is used in the SVG. You can delete the imported SVG - if you don't want it hanging around - but the colours should remain. You could otherwise try exporting from Inkscape to one of the formats supported by the "Import Colours" function on the "Colours" dialog and then importing just the colours using that function.

Once the colours are in Scribus - they should be copied exactly using either of the methods given - you can then look to see if there is a difference. If there is still a difference then more work will be needed to find out why. It could be one or more of any number of things.

Having said all that though, I am wondering why you are re-creating the graphic in Scribus rather than just importing it. Are you doing it for training/experience or was there a problem you are trying to circumvent? Of course it's entirely up to you why you're doing it, I'm just curious.

I don't think there are any rules against posting that sort of thing - I don't remember seeing any - but I don't think it is wrong to do so. If you have legitimate work that needs doing and there are people here who want to do it then why not? (I don't have any affiliation with the Scribus project so these are just my personal thoughts on the matter.)

If you can supply more information about exactly what output you want, with time-scales, payment details, language(s) etc. I'm sure you will have some responses (probably via private messages rather than in public).

If you do manage to get someone to do the work - or if it gets done by someone elsewhere - it would be appreciated if you could add a relevant post to this thread so people reading it later know that the opportunity is no longer open. (Less hassle for everyone in the long run.)

Are you absolutely sure you've used "Insert -> Character -> Page Number"?
The page number sometimes shows as an actual number when editing master pages - I don't know why - but it should always show as a red # in the Story Editor.

That's a shame; I've always found the raster export of Scribus to work pretty well. One or two features are "missing" but it usually does the job.
Can you explain - preferably with images - what you've been having trouble with? There might be simple fixes or workarounds.

There are two variants of the justified alignment.

The one you seem to be using is called Forced Justified, it seems you want the plain Justified.

I am recreating a graphic element - a shape - that I created in Inkscape,  and doing it in Scribus using Scribus' tools.

I copied the color recipes (RGB) exactly but they look darker than in Inkscape. I double-checked that everything is RGB.

Is there something else I can do to get Scribus colors to match the same ones in the inkscape file? Same computer/same monitor.

Thank you!

I don't know if this is allowed on the forums.  But I am looking into hiring someone with Scribus skills to do some restaurant menu design for me.

i just checked 'arrange pages' with scribus 1.4.6 on a windows 7 machine. as long as i don't try to move the last page, everything (adding new pages, moving existing pages) works as expected.

either your system is partly broken or you do something strangeā€¦

No, nothing strange. It simply doesn't work by using drag 'n' drop. I've got around it by other means, and it isn't the end of the world, so no matter.
