PDF Generation / Problems embedding fonts
« Last post by lesleysprite on January 11, 2018, 05:33:04 pm »
Hi, I am getting a note back from my printer that fonts are not properly embedded in my pdf can anyone help? Here is what I am doing:

I am using mathjax fonts, I untick the subset box for them in the font section of the document preferences.
I export as a pdf, select pdf/x-1a compatibility as instructed by my printer.
I check all the fonts are in the embed box, not the outline box and they are.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Layout Issues / Re: Overlapping bleeds

hi lucanapo

as garry mentions, a gap between the displayed pages will fix the problem. but it will produce a new one…

but first: do you really need bleeds on the binding edge of your pages? (depends on the binding method…)

Probably not strictly necessary. Itsjust that we have some sort of sub cover inside the mag, one for each piece of literature, and we often want full page images. So I got the habitof bleeding.the.edges after the typography asked for it.

Thank you so much guys, I was going to work around it with master pages, but your solution is better and simpler. Thanks again :)

if you need bleeds on the inner edge, you could use the mentioned gap ('file' → 'documenrt setup' → 'display' → 'gaps between pages') – but take care with overlapping elements! if you insert an image which spans over both pages of a spread, you need two separate image frames to add the supplementary area for the bleeds (a part of the image covering twice the width of one bleed needs to be printed twice. otherwise you'll miss this part in the final product.)
without the gap, you could (in most cases) just place your graphics and images over your double page spreads. that's why i would ask about the need for bleeds on the binding edge.

Welcome to the forum lucanapo.

EDIT: NOTE: My answer here may be interesting to some people but - as utnik says below - bleeds along the binding (inside) edges of the pages should not normally be used for multi-page documents. Please read the rest of the thread before using bleeds.

I don't use bleeds myself but I think the solution is just to increase the gap between the pages in "Document Setup / Display / Gap Between Pages". Set it to the sum of the two horizontal bleed measurements, e.g. left + right.

By default, Scribus assumes a zero gap but when you apply bleeds it doesn't automatically change the gap so the right-hand page is displayed over the right-hand part of the left-hand page.

I think that's all you need to do but another form member - someone who gets stuff printed - might be able to give more information (or a better solution if mine is not good enough).

Layout Issues / Overlapping bleeds
« Last post by lucanapo on January 10, 2018, 04:36:57 pm »
As title says...i set up the bleeds and they overlap in the middle part of the layout, as you can see in the pic:


This results in images overlapping on the previous page as you can see:


What should I do to fix this?

Text and Typography / Re: Curvy Texts?

You're welcome.

Apologies for the delay in answering; for some reason your reply didn't show up in my list of updated posts.

I'm not sure what you mean about the lines around the text but - if they are what I think they are - you should find that they disappear when you go into Preview Mode or export the document (or you could use menu "View -> Show Frames" to switch them off). Those lines are just showing you where text could be and are not part of the document.

P.S. Don't forget about the "Path Text Properties" section that appears under the Text settings in the Properties Palette. They're easy to miss if you don't know what to look for.

the question has been answered in the mailing list by juraj:

http://lists.scribus.net/pipermail/scribus/2018-January/054841.html

Code: [Select]
import scribus
pdf = scribus.PDFfile()
pdf.pages = [21, 22, 23, 24]
pdf.file = 'fourpages.pdf'
pdf.save()

@sam / sergio / guests5114: you asked the question on irc, mailing list and in this forum (at least...).
if you get a reply, please consider following up on each channel, telling everybody that you got a reply elsewhere, and link / copy the solution.
(most of the time, it's useful to summarize the solutions you got, even if you're not 100% happy with what you got)

Layout Issues / Re: Alternating pages in one document
« Last post by Lekhak on January 07, 2018, 07:09:05 pm »
I would say you are doing things wrong from the start.


I would design the document with A5 pages.

Then I would export to PDF and use an impositioning tool to generate the sheets for printing.

In this simple case most likely the PDF viewer will have a booklet printing option, my second choice would be Quantum Elephant's Bookbinder java application.

For more complex cases I would use jPDF tweak.

Thanks Nermander. I found the booklet printing option in my PDF XChange Editor. I'll try this way.

Scripts and Plugins / Export to PDF via scripter

Hello.

The help system of scribus 1.5.3 is not clear about exporting a document to PDF via python scripter.

Say I have a document opened in scribus named "simpledoc.sla" with 55 pages;
I want to export to PDF pages from 21 to 24 as "fourpages.pdf".

Can you put down a chunk of python code that does what I have just said?

Just one or two lines of python code, not more.

Thanks.
