Features / Re: Suggestion: a good start for footnotes Insert > Char > Footnote#
« Last post by dragonfly on September 22, 2018, 11:39:44 pm »
I have been studying how to build the final leg of the pipeline from Atom to Scribus.

All roads lead to Rome.

But I read here from post#3 ..

Quote
All of my many files (accumulated last 3 years) are made with 1.4.6, and I understand that 1.5 uses a new file format not backwardly-compatible; this and the report that the footnote functions are still incomplete has discouraged me from making an experiment.

From my reading through the forum there are many users still using the stable version of Scribus 1.4.x.

I have been experimenting on Scribus-trunk 1.5.5 (daily build) which has the ability to exploit python scripting to move pre-processed content from Atom (or LibreOffice) into Scribus.

However Scripter is not available on early version 1.4.x.

This leads me to consider developing two pipeline routes for different users.

(a) Atom accessing Scribus through methods in Atom which leverage the Scribus XML (.sla) format. This approach should work for both 1.4.x (stable) and 1.5.x (development).

(b) Atom driving Scribus through command line and leveraging Scripter.
This will not work with 1.4x but I can see should work with 1.5.x.

I'm not sure about the relative populations of 1.4.x users vs 1.5.x users.

My personal preference is the XML route which should support both 1.4.x and 1.5.x including legacy documents.

Installation and Setup / Re: no menu bar after installation
« Last post by Sachkh67 on September 22, 2018, 10:44:19 am »
Good morning all. I just installed Scribus 1.4.1 to my new Mac Pro. It seemed to install correctly, no warnings, etc. It also seems to start quickly and brings me to the document setup dialogue boxes, which is great.

However, once the document is set up, and I am ready to begin, I noticed I am lacking a menu bar - the bar with "File, Window, etc." drop-down menus. The tool bars are there, but I cannot see any menu bar anywhere. I also cannot find any place to turn the menu bar on, no Options or Preferences place I can access, and right-clicking does not bring up anything in the context menu.

Any ideas? It feels a bit like an incomplete setup.

Russell

have you got any solution? I am encountering the same error

Hello Raymund, could you please attach your scribus file to look at, to see if the same problem(s) occur on other scribus apps?  Thanks!

Also note that there are two different justifications, they treat the last line differently.

Text and Typography / custom colors for text broken in 1.5.4
« Last post by Raymund on September 21, 2018, 08:35:46 pm »
Hi, I recently upgraded to 1.5.4 on Manjaro Linux running the 4.14.70-1 LTS kernel. I opened a file created under a previous version of Scribus that had some custom colors for text fill and shadow. Those custom colors appear normal in existing text objects. When I created a new text object and tried to apply the same custom colors, the application of the colors failed, and the text fill and shadow are both white.

I attach an image. The words "TO ALL" are original, with custom black and blue. The letters "CON" should have the same custom black and blue, but instead appear white.

I created new custom colors with the same RGB settings as the prior ones using the Edit > Colors and Fills > Add dialogue box. The new custom colors also failed to be applied to the new text object.

I've activated color management in both File > Preferences and File > Document Setup. After doing so, applying both the earlier custom colors and the new custom colors also fails.

Did you [url https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syllabification]hyphenate[/url] your text?

If you did it and you still get "holes" in your text, you might want to play with the tracking and the glyph widths in the properties palette > text > advanced settings.

Since I don't know if you already know about those concepts, I'll let you ask further questions, if you need more details...

Beginner Talk / Help needed with paragraph justification
« Last post by rajarshimotilal on September 21, 2018, 10:06:21 am »
Hi,
I have recently started using Scribus.
While justifying a paragraph, there are unnecessary text spaces for few sentences. I cant remove them, can someone help?

Thanks in advance for solving this (may be) silly question :(
