Title: Text vanishing in PDF export
Post by: mike.baehr on November 30, 2017, 11:42:22 pm
I'm creating a very simple document, a single image on each of 20 pages and a small field of text on each of the first and last pages. When I export to PDF, the text vanishes in the resulting file, even with properties all at default values. What am I doing wrong? There's obviously something very elementary that I'm missing.

hi mike

when i export your file, i can see the text on both pages.
the fonts are replaced by scribus, as i don't have exactly the same futura fonts as you do – so i lose your exact font settings.
even without any embedded font, the text should be readable (at least with 'acrobat reader') as the reader should usually display the text with a standard font – so i don't really know what happens when you export your file…
