PDF Generation / "Use Color Profiles" options in PDF export
« Last post by bymarion on September 16, 2017, 10:22:59 pm »
Hi !

I'm designing some greeting cards and my printer's file requirements state that:
1) they need pdf/X-4 files in CMYK only, output intent set to GRACol2006
2) color profiles should be embedded for images

I am using scribus 1.5.3 and am confused as to what I should choose in the pdf export settings:
My files contain RGB images with an embedded sRGB profile.
So, it seems that to meet the printer's requirement I should check both "use color profiles" (to meet point 1) and "do not use embedded color profiles" (to meet point 2).
Is that correct ?  ::)


I'm thankful for your insight !

Beginner Talk / Insight into import svg
« Last post by Zceebee on September 14, 2017, 08:17:34 pm »
Hello,

I could use some help understanding the import svg function. When I tried to import an svg file created with Inkscape, I get a blank image as the result. If I use the open file feature, the artwork is opened in Scribus.

In the imported file, I am able to ungroup and see all of the objects as outlines only, no color fill or other information is there. If i double click any of these objects, I can see a path and not sure if there is something I need to do to the path. Is there something I need to do in Inkscape for saving as an svg for import into Scibus so the objects are shown?

If I use the Open feature however, the file opens in Scribus. I'm a little confused by these things and want to send my thanks in advance for any clarity someone brings.

but this issue is in scribus itself and cannot (really) be solved in the scripter...

Thnanks :) works nicely. I hope new scripting functionality with a saner API (like the never-finished scripter-ng) will come, this feels so much like visual basic ;D

yes, the goal now is to see if the file is the issue or the cloud...

i would also check the names of the file and see if those that do not work have spaces or accents in there...

also, you could rename one of the files that do not work in the cloud to a.pdf and see if then works...

I have had problems previously with importing/linking files that were in a cloud drive. Another problem is the pdf version that is trying to be imported into scribus, I always try and save to pdf 1.4, if there are layers in the pdf, masks or clip paths in the pdf, etc...  Also have you tried the preview settings to make sure the 'image visible' is checked on for each image...  Just some ideas, let me ruminate and see if anything gets shaken loose from my brain.

Cheers!

Congrats for this project!
When thus will be included into scribus I think many people will change their opinion about scribus.

I only saw the screenshots, but as soon as I can I will test it
