Windows / Re: Most frames all black after reinstall
« Last post by utnik on May 18, 2018, 06:49:16 am »
hi ulfa

i have never seen this in scribus 1.5.4. but when i open a file from scribus 1.5.4 with 1.5.3 this is the usual behavior – at least with my files.
the way scribus deals with colors has changed in some way between 1.5.3 and 1.5.4 – there's no backward campatibility.

do you really see this in scribus 1.5.4?

Hello again!  I don't like to feel handicapped when trying to achieve  something interesting and will follow your advice and go for it.  So, Inkscape is installed and the manual on its way.  I wonder though if expanding my creativity horizon will complicate or simplify my existence before the little screen.  (I opt for complicate...)

UPDATE:
When I am making a new document and a frame I can set background colours as expected. Copy paste a frame from the "black and wrong" document adding a number of colours to select from. All these new colours have regular colour-names but shows black. They are all marked as a type "L in a square". What is the meaning of this L-type? Looks like the problem is there.

The work around is to make a new document and hope to stay away from "L-type" colours. My fear is however that this misbehaviour is ralated to the windows update in april. Both my fresh install of 1.5.4 and my collegues present 1.5.3 shows the same symtom after latest win 10 update.

Free discussion / Re: Imposition Plugin for Scribus ?

Thank you all for these answers, will check them out.

There are still some decisions to make regarding the format. It will be most likely printed on a A1 or A2 sheet, not at home, so want to have the document set right. I am trying to get the whole workflow clear before start designing

Cheers

you are already burdening yourself with one more activity:

- gimp is for bitmap / photo editing
- scribus for layout tasks

and now you want to do some vector editing...

you can do that in gimp or in scribus, but both are not great tools for it.

Beginner Talk / Re: Cover and internal not of the same size?
« Last post by a.l.e on May 17, 2018, 09:47:27 am »
i scribus you can have pages of different sizes, so you should be able to create the project in one file.

but, since the cover is very different from the content, i would probably create two files and send to pdfs to the print shop. if they allow it.

I use GIMP as well as SCRIBUS and didn't want to burden myself with one more activity.  Since you recommend INKSCAPE I will give it a try although I am not much of an artist and the two aforementioned programs keep me quite busy in my leisure time.  Thanks for the suggestions.

Beginner Talk / Cover and internal not of the same size?
« Last post by jlmalet on May 16, 2018, 07:35:48 pm »
Hello!
I just discovered scribus and it's exactly what I was looking for!!!!!
my editor says me to use these settings :

6x9 inches (15x23 cm)
Hardcover, ImageWrap
Standard Trade Paper, matte finish
40 pages
Page Specifications   Centimeters
Final, exported PDF should measure (w x h)   15.557 x 23.495
Page size / trim line (w x h)   15.24 x 22.861
Bleed (top, bottom, and outside edges)   0.317
Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (Top, Bottom, Outside Edge)   0.635
Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (Binding Edge)   1.27

Cover Specifications   Centimeters
Final, exported PDF should measure (w x h)   34.289 x 25.047
Total Page size / trim line (w x h)   32.737 x 23.495
Bleed (all edges)   0.776
Flaps (w x h, measured from trim edge to fold)   none
Gutter / Spine (w x h)   0.635 x 25.047
Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (from edge of trim)   0.635


so the cover is different from the internal and I have to create only one big page of 32.737cm x 23.495cm then have a document of facing pages (I want to have some pictures overlapping on both pages) starting with the right page
since I want also to export it as pdf/ebook I would like to have this display :
Code: [Select]
|----------------------------------|
|                                  |
|                                  |
|            cover                 |
|                                  |
|----------------------------------|
                |------------------|
                |                  |
                |    R Page        |
                |                  |
                |------------------|
|---------------|------------------|
|               |                  |
|               |                  |
|               |                  |
|---------------|------------------|
is it possible? or must I do a cover project, then a internal project and merge the resulting pdfs?
thanks and regards!
