Title: Cover and internal not of the same size?
Post by: jlmalet on May 16, 2018, 07:35:48 pm
Hello!
I just discovered scribus and it's exactly what I was looking for!!!!!
my editor says me to use these settings :

6x9 inches (15x23 cm)
Hardcover, ImageWrap
Standard Trade Paper, matte finish
40 pages
Page Specifications   Centimeters
Final, exported PDF should measure (w x h)   15.557 x 23.495
Page size / trim line (w x h)   15.24 x 22.861
Bleed (top, bottom, and outside edges)   0.317
Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (Top, Bottom, Outside Edge)   0.635
Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (Binding Edge)   1.27

Cover Specifications   Centimeters
Final, exported PDF should measure (w x h)   34.289 x 25.047
Total Page size / trim line (w x h)   32.737 x 23.495
Bleed (all edges)   0.776
Flaps (w x h, measured from trim edge to fold)   none
Gutter / Spine (w x h)   0.635 x 25.047
Inset for Margins / Safe boundary (from edge of trim)   0.635


so the cover is different from the internal and I have to create only one big page of 32.737cm x 23.495cm then have a document of facing pages (I want to have some pictures overlapping on both pages) starting with the right page
since I want also to export it as pdf/ebook I would like to have this display :
Code: [Select]
|----------------------------------|
|                                  |
|                                  |
|            cover                 |
|                                  |
|----------------------------------|
                |------------------|
                |                  |
                |    R Page        |
                |                  |
                |------------------|
|---------------|------------------|
|               |                  |
|               |                  |
|               |                  |
|---------------|------------------|
is it possible? or must I do a cover project, then a internal project and merge the resulting pdfs?
thanks and regards!

i scribus you can have pages of different sizes, so you should be able to create the project in one file.

but, since the cover is very different from the content, i would probably create two files and send to pdfs to the print shop. if they allow it.
