Title: Trouble in PDF exporting
Post by: soakedlontra on October 17, 2014, 06:52:47 pm
I have just created my first Scribus document. It's a cover for a daily planner. I have followed the tutorial that I found somewhere in the Scribus website.

I am trying to export this Scribus file as a PDF file but a window pops up and looks like this

I understand that there is something wrong but I don't know what it is.

Well the link to the photo did not work so I will try in a different way:

well maybe FB doesn't like Scribus.

hi soakedlontra

screenshot (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=297061440488921&set=a.297061430488922.1073741838.100005552012142&type=3&theater)
first you should edit your post (insert the deleted bracket by the end tag of the link…)

as the screenshot sais, there's some overfloving text on page 1 of your document. take a look at the text frame – maybe it's only an empty line…
if you just ignore the error, without checking it, you could end up with a .pdf file withsome missing text…

Thank you very much I missed the missing [ !

I clicked on the photo icon and added the same link but the photo doesn't show up:

I messed with the text and then exported the file as PDF  again the same warning window showed up but this time I ignored it and the file has been exported as PDF. I checked it and nothing was missing. Thanks!  :)
