Beginner Talk / Re: How display image bounded by oval frame
« Last post by a.l.e on June 03, 2018, 07:25:37 pm »
if you have converted your oval to an image frame, you can simply load the image into the frame as you would do with a normal image frame...

where are you stuck?

Beginner Talk / How display image bounded by oval frame
« Last post by Ulsinus on June 03, 2018, 03:59:50 pm »

Grateful for the help and guidance of the forum members to resolve my query.

I know how to insert a rectangular image frame and import an image from file. Then how to manipulate the image and image frame to get the size I want.

All good and dandy.

Now I want to display an image not bound by a rectangular image frame but by an elliptical or oval one.

I've tried using Default shapes, manipulating the circle one and then converting it to an image frame and that is where I get stuck.

Am I going about it in the right way or should I be using a different approach?

Please lighten my darkness.

hi enzogian

in the opening post you're talking about editing the contour line. but as i learned from the files you provided with your bug report (.sla and screenshot), you are editing the frame shape instead.
just select the 'contour line' for the text flow and check 'edit contour line' in the nodes edit window and your problems should be gone.

as you see in the screencast above, here the arrow does increase the contour line in all four directions.
with a somehow up to date scribus.

and concerning multiple selections: the problem, i guess, is how to show values that are not the same in all the selected items.
probably, it's not that easy to get it right for all possible cases... and have a good ux / ui on top of it : - )

personally, i'd prefer to have styles for frames, so that you can apply the same formatting to multiple items (and being able to create / update a style based on the current selection).

When using the arrow, it increases the path only from one side of the square and not the four sides... (?)

I really hope they could implement the text flowing action for multiple selection. I can see Scribus allows change of properties like shadows, line colors and box multiple selection..

Thanks a lot Ale, the arrow issues was something I did not catch (was not so evident to me as when I apply it it seems is taking effects only to one side of the frame and not all around the four sides.. I would keep checking why this happens but is certainly a big progress for me knowing the function of this arrow.. (Thanks really)

1. it is common in scribus that actions can only be applied to one item at a time...
    but you can create a group...

2. if i understand you correctly, it's the arrow button in the shape dialog:

Layout Issues / Text Flow Around Frames
« Last post by enzogian on May 30, 2018, 09:06:49 pm »
Hi, I wonder a couple of things related to text flowing around frames:

1- Can the "Text flowing around frames" action be applied to multiple selected frames ?  I can see it works only by selecting one frame at a time.

2- Where can I insert offset numeric values (separation space from text to frame's border). I have been looking intensively but I have been successful only by editing the contour line manually. (could it be related to the version and platform I am using ? I am using 1.5.4 in Windows 10)

Many thanks and regards,

This morning I've deleted three posts that I considered to be spam.

They were replies to older threads, that were copy pasted from other websites (the Scribus wiki, the Libreoffice forum, ...)

They were somehow on topic, but not really.

If such keep on showing up, I'll also delete the users that have posted them.

I'll try to be careful, and I hope that I won't delete genuine posts. If that happen, please pardon me and write a new post, in a way that it cannot be filled as spam.

Have fun

hi edradour...

well, i've tried to give you a hint ("put a column guide (see the guides manager)") ... but it's often hard to know, how much the reader already knows about scribus already, how long a post should be, and  how much time i should invest into it...

you have created a nice script, and probably learned a few things: i hope you will be able to create more script to improve your workflow!
