There should not be if you do everything right.

Good idea. But there is no loose quality?

i have to dig into this.
(normally, i only use the "designer" part of qt creator... and not even that often...)

Export to PDF, then use for example Ghostscript to generate one image per page from the PDF?

Beginner Talk / Bleeds ad export to image

I'm not English, so it doesn't help to understand technical words...

I have to realize a photobook for my child and I need to export a image file for every page. I'm thinking to use the bleeds of 3 mm to avoid cut on important parts and to see a quick preview of the probably final result after the print.

My problem is: I'm not able to export the pages to image with the bleeds part (bleeds are cut during the export). It doesn't happen in the export to pdf (I can export to pdf also the bleeds part).

I have also tried to change dimension page and put bleeds to 0 after the work, but the elements in the page don't remain in the correct position.

How can I do to resolve?

Thank you so much

hi jhamond987

direct printing is not the standard procedure with scribus – and it doesn't work on all systems.
the usual way is to export a .pdf file and print it from a .pdf viewer.

I cant get the debug build working in qt creator.
Do you have a guide on configuring the options to get the debug mode working?

I get the following error:

This does not seem to be a "Debug" build.
Setting breakpoints by file name and line number may fail.

Section .debug_info: Not found.

General Discussion / Scribus and Printing?
« Last post by jhamond987 on October 13, 2018, 02:11:58 am »
Wow, just started using this awesome program just a week ago. It is incredibly nice layout program for desktop publishing. I do wish it came with a bunch of little graphics to use, but you can't get it all for the price! Anyway, it won't print. I have an HP 1310 printer and every time I try to print something directly, it sends it to the printer, I click on the little printer in the icon tray to see what is going on, because it claims to be printing, but nothing happens. When I double click the little printer icon, it opens my printer, and says there is a document for print, but that it is stopped? I don't stop it, so why is it stopped? I end up clicking on cancel document, because it never does anything? Anyone have any ideas?

Found this post ...

pnmtopng is a Unix library and there are some binaries for Windows.

and more from Lilypond forum.

I'm sorry I still can't answer your exact question, but I can give some pointers.  pngtopnm is a standard image file format converter on unix boxes, and so I guess Lily assumes it's there for some of its operations, and it isn't on Windows.  Hence the error message.
 
In my experiments, using --png with -dresolution=nnn gives exactly the same output as -dresolution=nnn/3 -danti-alias-factor=3 - so it appears not worth using the anti alias factor at all.  Accepting that you will never get an image file as good looking as PDF, since PDF scales, then something like lilypond --png -dresolution=900 should give you a better image than you need.

Thus this explains why I can run error free (in Unix) but you cannot (in Windows).  Try dropping -danti-alias-factor entirely.  And finally have you tried importing pdf into Scribus?

That 3.5 gig file size comes from Lilypond's attempt to process my .ly  source file which is only about 4 kilobytes.
I didn't make an  .ly file that big! And without the anti-aliasing command it exports to a .png at 191 kilobytes, no problem. The huge files are all artifacts of the process generated by the extra command:

-danti-alias-factor=10

I though that the GNU program I installed a little while ago had included pngtopnm, but running

pngtopnm --version
 
from the command line gives me the error message, "not a recognized command"... my goof some way, I will look at this some more. The program is on my computer and installed, see screenshot. I also put its directory in the path, but still get "unrecognized command" from the command line.

I have been considering Lily-book, it does appear to be Lilypond's own in-house way to do what Scribus does, but as I am still dealing with basic input code in Lilypond, it will probably be a while before I am ready to tackle it.
