Title: 1.44 columns
Post by: Bill N on August 17, 2014, 08:13:48 am
I do not see where to edit the number of columns under text frame (F2) shapes?

hi bill

try 'properties'(f2) → 'text' → 'columns & text distances'

Thanks, How do I find 1.4.4 documentation? I seem to have found the old stuff.  Thanks so much.

hi bill

yes, the official documentation is partly outdated. but search engines will lead you to newer manuals…
in the download section of learn-creative.com (http://www.learn-creative.com/) you'll find a scribus guide for the version 1.4.0 (http://www.learn-creative.com/downloads/Scribus_Guide_UK.pdf) – almost the same as the actual version. (the great new feature in 1.4.4 is the export as .pdf/x-1a…)

Hi utnik,
               Many thanks for that, even tho' I'm working in Linux not Mac., there's much good information in that guide.  I had figured out most
of the pdf export details myself and am pleased to see that I was on the right path.  Got a bit confused until  I realised  that the pdf file page numbers were not necessarily the same as my document's page numbering because I am printing  the 'doc in sections.  The ability to easily
pdf export each page as a separate file in one run is very very useful when working with the proof stage.

Tuxford.
