you're right – i forgot about this microsoft 'special feature'  – sorry!
i never use microsoft standard fonts, but as you use 'arial', this strange inconsistency between licensing and programming could be the source of your problem.

Hmm, I just noticed that one of the posts I googled on PDFs not coming out as text are commented by you, utnik, so I'm a bit surprised by your surprise...?

Thx for the answers. I'll look at the patch tomorrow.

I don't use text chains, the boxes are individual. (It's text-based cards for a game).

As far as I can tell from my googling, the PDF-problem is something to do with incompatible fonts, but some of the problem text is in Arial, and I have a hard time believing that that isn't compatible with most functions anywhere.

there is a patch for a find and replace on the whole document.

…or you can use the 'story editor' to search a whole text chain.

…if I export the document to a PDF, it comes out as picture-pages, not as searchable text.

strange! – when i export my projects, the resulting .pdf files contain serchable text.

if possible (that is: you can compile the host repository: https://github.com/HOST-Oman/scribus) please do so!

Beginner Talk / Can't you search the entire document?
« Last post by nikmielche on May 15, 2018, 02:13:19 pm »
Can it really be true that I have to select each text-box and do individual searches to find and replace a word? My documents have probably about 200 boxes, not counting the ones that are used as numbering-icons. And if I export the document to a PDF, it comes out as picture-pages, not as searchable text.

Help, please!

Are you just interested in n-up imposition or also other imposition such as making booklets?

Thank you a.l.e

I'll check that pdfsam out. Also will check pdfnup if this could add functionality? I am on a mac. Although it is not the same, I have some experience with ffmpeg using terminal for video compression, so I can give it a try I guess. Anyways it would be great if you know of any tutorial or so, to get me started.

Cheers

Beginner Talk / Retain formatting copying from one scribus document to another

This must be simple but I can't see a reference to it within the archives.

I can make an SVG but can't see how to just copy some text boxes with their formatting from one Scribus to another.
