Title: [Solved] Unable to print an A6 Postcard
Post by: humphrey on November 20, 2015, 09:01:21 pm
Hi

I have put together an A6 postcard, but when I try to print or go to print preview there is nothing there.

hi humphrey

just a shot in the dark:
you probably marked the layer as 'non printable'. (the box under the printer icon in the layers palette (f6))

Thank you so much Utnik.

That is exactly what I have done. I am a complete novice at Scribus, but I am sure I will get better as I go along.

Maybe warning about items set to non-printable should be an option in the pre-flight verifier? (I can see a settings to ignore non-printable layers, but no setting to warn about them.)

some time ago, my proposal was to add a warning, if there is a mismatch between printable and visisble...

i checked: it's in 1.5svn but it's not enabled by default...

Ah, well, that one would probably capture most errors.
