Beginner Talk / Re: Only first letter of each line visible

Welcome PeterLinux

Could you post a screenshot of what you are seeing and maybe post the pdf file if you do not mind.  Also which OS (I am assuming Linux), if so which Distro?  I just put a pdf in Scribus 1.4.6 in Linux Mint 18.3 with no issues.  Just guessing but it might be a font issue where the fonts are not embedded in the pdf...

Cheers!

Beginner Talk / Only first letter of each line visible
« Last post by PeterLinux on June 11, 2018, 10:28:01 pm »
Hello, I'm a total newbie to Scribus.

---EDIT:---
Scribus-Version 1.4.6
03 Januar 2016
Build ID: C-C-T-F-C1.14.6-64bit
Ghostscript-Version: 9.18
------

I open a PDF file with Scribus and in Scribus the text isn't shown. I can only see the first letter of each line. So I definitively haven't WYSIWYG!

Is this a bug? Or is it intentionally to save processor ressources?

How can I see the whole text and get closer to WYSIWYG?

Kind regards
Peter

Yes, but a file generated with Autocad works well with adobe.

It does not print a layer if it is disabled.

Oui mais un fichier généré avec Autocad fonctionne bien avec adobe.

Il n'imprime pas un calque si il est désactivé.

Hello,

That's how I did, I select the print icon in scribus, but later with the PDF reader we can not choose. He keeps this value.

Even if we disable a layer in the pdf reader it prints anyway.

With the default Ubuntu Evince reader it works but not with Acrobat Reader or Nuance PDF Reader.

***********************************************
Bonjour,

C'est comme ça que j'ai fait, je sélectionne l'icone imprimer dans scribus, mais après  avec le lecteur PDF on ne peut plus choisir. Il garde cette valeur.

Même si on désactive une couche dans le lecteur pdf elle s'imprime quand même.

Avec le lecteur par défaut d'Ubuntu Evince ça fonctionne mais pas avec Acrobat Reader ou Nuance PDF Reader.

Installation and Setup / No generate print preview on xubuntu 18.04
« Last post by ancpress on June 09, 2018, 06:21:31 am »
Hi, everyone

I have fresh xubuntu 18.04  and install scribus, works perfectly but i can't see the 'print preview'.
I have installed ghostscript and on 'preferences>external tools' is set 'gs' as postscript interpreter, but i don't know what is the problem.

Thanks.

PD.: I attach a screenshot.

Part 3.

Workflow C1
: LibreOffice Paragraph & Character Styles (no direct formatting) + Scribus

2 - Document opened/imported in LibreOffice Writer, direct formatting replaced by Character Styles with Find+Replace [e.g. (a) search all instances of Format=italic, (b) remove direct formatting for selection, (c) apply "Emphasis" character style], remove direct formatting for all text [does not remove applied character styles], Paragraph Styles applied, saved as .odt. [example: MStest_C.odt]

3 - Template in Scribus with master pages, paragraph/character styles and text frames [example: Hornero artículo.sla]

4 - Text inserted into Scribus text frame (Get Text…; styles imported with odt name appended)
      -> Character styles are lost + some Paragraph Styles differ from those in .odt version (e.g., imported as "P1" instead of "Título"); some characteristics lost (Caps in "Título" when imported as "P1"); styles names do not import correctly with special characters ("EpÃgrafe" instead of "Epígrafe"; "Filiación" instead of "Filiación")

5 -  Scribus Paragraph styles must be applied in Story editor [see Workflow A]

Workflow C2: LibreOffice Paragraph & Character Styles (no direct formatting) + Scribus, based on .html

2 - Document opened/imported in LibreOffice Writer, direct formatting replaced by Character Styles with Find+Replace [e.g. (a) search all instances of Format=italic, (b) remove direct formatting for selection, (c) apply "Emphasis" character style], remove direct formatting for all text [does not remove applied character styles], Paragraph Styles applied, saved as .html [example: MStest_C.html]

3 - Template in Scribus with master pages, paragraph/character styles and text frames [example: Hornero artículo.sla]

4 - Text inserted into Scribus text frame (Get Text…)
      -> All Paragraph and Character Styles from Writer are lost (only "HTML_p" style is added to the list of Scribus styles) but italics, bold and superscripts preserved (Caps and SmallCaps are lost, and some spaces were lost in text originally in SmallCaps).

5 -  Scribus Paragraph styles must be applied in Story editor [see Workflow A]

Part 2.

Workflow B1: LibreOffice Paragraph Styles + Scribus

2 - Document opened/imported in LibreOffice Writer, Paragraph Styles applied [keeping direct formatting for italics/bold] and saved as .odt. [example: MStest_B.odt]

3 - Template in Scribus with master pages, paragraph/character styles and text frames [example: Hornero artículo.sla]

4 - Text inserted into Scribus text frame (Get Text…; overwrite/merge styles; styles imported with odt name appended)
      -> Direct formatting is recognized, but some Paragraph Styles differ from those in .odt version (e.g., imported as "P1" and "P2" instead of "Título" and "Texto"); some characteristics are lost (Caps in "Título" when imported as "P1"); styles names do not import correctly with special characters ("EpÃgrafe" instead of "Epígrafe"; "Filiación" instead of "Filiación")
   
5 - If Scribus Paragraph styles are applied to correct Writer Styles not/badly imported, direct formatting is lost if done in main window (through Properties). It has to be done in Story editor. Some characteristics may not be applied to texts with direct formatting [see Workflow A]

Workflow B2: LibreOffice Paragraph Styles + Scribus, based on .html

2 - Document opened/imported in LibreOffice Writer, Paragraph Styles applied [keeping direct formatting for italics/bold] and saved as .html. [example: MStest_B.html]

3 - Template in Scribus with master pages, paragraph/character styles and text frames [example: Hornero artículo.sla]

4 - Text inserted into Scribus text frame (Get Text…)
      -> Direct formatting is recognized except Caps and Small Caps (some spaces were lost in text originally in SmallCaps), including italics and bold (i.e., using substitution fonts as defined in Preferences). However, everything imports as "Default Paragraph Style" (only "html_p" style is added to the list of Scribus styles)

5 - If Scribus Paragraph styles are applied to correct Writer Styles not/badly imported, direct formatting is lost if done in main window (through Properties). It has to be done in Story editor. Some characteristics may not be applied to texts with direct formatting [see Workflow A]

Layout Issues / Layer
« Last post by michel56 on June 08, 2018, 04:15:00 pm »
Hello,

When you open a PDF file created with Scribus and you want to print, all prints even the disabled layers.

Why when we generate PDF we do not have the option "Print when visible"

PDFs created with Autocad print correctly. In property of the layer of the pdf file, one has in printed "Print when visible"

Thank you.

************

Bonjour,

Lorsque l'on ouvre un fichier PDF crée avec Scribus et que l'on souhaite imprimer, tous s'imprime même les calques désactivés.

Pourquoi quand on génère le PDF on n'a pas l'option "Imprimer lorsque visible"

Les pdf créés avec Autocad s'impriment correctement. Dans propriété de la couche du fichier pdf, on a dans imprimé "Imprimer lorsque visible"

Merci.
