Text and Typography / Arial "I" & "l" strange rendering...
« Last post by 24Peter on November 13, 2017, 05:29:03 am »
I am new to Scribus. I am creating a photobook for CreateSpace. I have selected a basic 12 pt font Arial>Regular for my default paragraph character style. When I export to .pdf I get a strange rendering of capital "I" and lowercase "l" - it looks bolded (there are not bold or italics selected for the font). I definitely don't want it to print that way. (It appears in the Preview Mode in Scribus as well.) See attached screen grab.

PDF Generation / Re: Embedded fonts missing on PDF

a couple of updated fonts by the system, that, since then, no loger will be able to be embedded.... don't know...

Yes, that's what I meant by "Never versions of a font may have different licensing." But of course I meant "newer" and not "never"! Sorry, didn't notice the spelling error until now.

That you have Arial embedded in older PDFs does not mean that it is the same version of Arial that is embedded.

That is one reason why I always use a separate font directory for Scribus: I don't want the system to update to never versions of the fonts without me knowing it.

PDF Generation / Re: PDFs won't display in Scribus

I will try the search you recommend and see what I find.  I am not sure what to do with the information it returns.

I followed your recommendation regarding Collect to Output and placed the sla file in its own directory.  As I "Get Image" for each pdf, they were copied from their own directories into the same directory as the sla file.  I tested this on all three platforms (the two Windows machines and the Macbook) and everything works.  Both of us can edit the sla file and see all of the pdfs, since they are now local to the sla file.  Until I resolve the referential links, on my Macbook,  to the other folders where the pdfs reside, this will work for us.  Thank you very much.

Given that the 2 Windows machines have no problem with referential links outside of the sla file, I have to believe it is a problem with the path the Mac is expecting to find.  If I can solve that I won't have duplicate files floating around.

But hey, at least I can collaborate with my Macbook now!

hi danny

…a couple of updated fonts by the system, that, since then, no loger will be able to be embedded…

yes, this is a known problem with a lot of microsoft standard fonts. the font's licenses allow embedding in print files, but an internal flag is set that doesn't allow embedding (at least with software wich cares about such flags…)

you could either change the embedding allowance with a tool like fontforge, use an older version of the same font or move to another font family.

at the moment...

I've downloaded again an "impact" font... reinstalled.... and now the pdf properties worked for this font.

Unfortunately not for "verdana" and "arial" anymore.... so I'm changing these font inside my pubblication...  :'(

The only thing i saw (watching at the fonts details) is that an update of some files was around Sept.29, probably the days when W10 upgraded his system with the "creators fall updates" .... it's the only thing i'm assuming... a couple of updated fonts by the system, that, since then, no loger will be able to be embedded.... don't know...

Anyone experienced this situation?

Layout Issues / Re: How can I remove the line of a text/image frame?
« Last post by utnik on November 12, 2017, 04:23:16 pm »
hi igor

…here's a reasonable workaround. There's an option which allows the removal of all frames (right-click anywhere outside a frame and uncheck "show frames")…

if unchecking 'show frames' works, then there aren't any visible frames in your final document (in 'preview mode' you won't see them…)
the 'show frames' option is just to make the frames visible while working on the layout.

You're welcome.

You don't need a workaround. Find where you change the outline colour - in 1.4.6 it's the Colours tab of the Properties Palette, don't know where in 1.5.x - and set it to None. That's all you need to do.

Hi Garry,

Thanks a lot for taking the time to respond.

I haven't found the ideal solution but here's a reasonable workaround. There's an option which allows the removal of all frames (right-click anywhere outside a frame and uncheck "show frames"). Then, one can use the style option to add a line to specific frames when needed.

Again, not ideal but it works.

Cheers,
Igor

Beginner Talk / Re: paragraph spacing
« Last post by GarryP on November 12, 2017, 03:04:21 pm »
Welcome to the forum DeanEM.TFAD.

To change the paragraph before and after spacing you need to be using a paragraph style (PF3) rather than direct formatting.
Styles are easy to set-up and deploy so it's well worth getting used to them.
