Beginner Talk / Re: Maximum "weight" of a Scribus file ?
« Last post by pierruel on December 14, 2018, 03:47:11 pm »
Hi a.l.e.
Thank you for answering.
I don't get the preview (I get a structured background) and if I click on it I get a blank (empty) image in my image frame. But the most funny (peculiar of course !) is that I imported successfully 135 pictures before the problem occured. The weight of the .sla file is 346 Ko, the reason why I asked about a maximum weight permitted.
The images are produced by my music notation software, which can export under .jpg, .bmp and .png formats, the best one beeing .png if I understand well.
What dragging from a picture browser is concerned, can I use Picasa to do it ?
Is it foreseeable that the same issue would appear (or not) if loading 135 and more pictures in .png format into my .sla file ?
Thank you for your patience !
Regards
Pierre
P.S. The weight of my pictures with the .jpg format is between 700 and 1100 Ko each but I see that their weight is not added to the one of the .sla file, isn't it ?

sal├╝ pierre

so, you don't get the preview when clicking on the image?
but can you load them in an image frame?
if it does not load in an image frame, can you upload one of those images so that we can test it?
if it does load, and your problem is that it's harder to see which image you're importing, you might be able to drag and drop your images directly from a file manager or picture browsers (depending on your setup it will work or not).

finally, converting the existing images to a different format won't help.
you would have to regenerate the images from the original software...
next time, try to export to png or tif instead of jpg...

Thank you a.l.e.,
My post wasn't clear enough, sorry: when I'm in the "import a picture" window, if I select a picture, a thumbnail of the selected picture normally appears in the small window on the right. In my case there is no thumbnail appearing, although the concerned picture exists (and occupies btw the whole space of the A4 format minus margins).
I wasn't aware about the picture's format: which one would be the best (unfortunately I imported already more than 100 pages/pictures ! Is it possible to convert them to another format inside Scribus or should I convert them in a picture editing software ?)
Thank you in advance
regards
Pierre

you're probably seeing the top left corner of the image...

- open the "window > properties" palette
- scale the content to the frame



you can change the preferences (for future documents) and the document settings (for the current document) to get the new image to automatically scale. it's in the "tools > image frame" section.

btw, you probably know that jpg is a bad format for content with sharp contours...

Beginner Talk / Maximum "weight" of a Scribus file ?
« Last post by pierruel on December 14, 2018, 10:04:09 am »
Good morning everybody,
I'm editing a music score and (for technical reasons) my contents are on .jpg format. Each A4 page = one jpg file. Since today the "import image" feature doesn't work correctly: jpg files I want to import seem empty. I checked them with my picture editing software and they are all right. Does it happen because there are too much pictures in my score ?
Thank you for any help.
regards
Pierre

I have found Scribus so valuable that I would like to make a monetary donation to its development.  Is this possible?

PDF Generation / Re: First page is no longer on right after export to "Save as PDF"
« Last post by a.l.e on December 14, 2018, 12:20:27 am »
you might have a look at the viewer tab in the pdf export options...

but, normally, scribus just exports the file as is shown... so it might rather be a setting in your pdf reader...

personally, i never had any issue there, the printer will (afaik) ignore that setting anyway and print it the way you ask for...

PDF Generation / First page is no longer on right after export to "Save as PDF"
« Last post by doowopshebop on December 13, 2018, 10:03:27 pm »
I created double-sided .sla.

The first page appears on the right in the .sla.

All middle pages (before the last page) are two-sided in the .sla.

The last page is on the left in the .sla.

This is what I want.

But I export to Save as PDF...

...and in the PDF all of the pages are side by side.

So printers I've been to recently can't print the booklet as a proper folded booklet.

I am able to generate a PDF in which all the pages are single consecutive pages. A tiny printer in Grass Valley California once took a PDF like this and used InDesign to get the first-page-on-right and last-page-on-left setup. But I'm not in Grass Valley and can't get there. And I don't know what he did. I do have InDesign and Adobe CS6. I don't have Acrobat. Just Acrobat Reader.

This is for a wedding and I have to catch a flight tonight. If I can just get the PDF ready, I can print when I get there.

Thanks in advance if anyone can help!!!

Thanks!

It looks like this is a quick way to install it via a .pkg file
