Title: import all images from a Word or Open Office doc?
Post by: rumple on June 21, 2019, 03:30:20 pm
Can I import all the images from a Word file in one hit?
It will be a struggle to import all 50 one by one!

I did try adding an image box on the master page so I get boxes in place as a start. But then I can't import into that on the actual pages.

I'm a former QuarkXPress professional user and instructor so know QXP inside out even after 20 years of not using it - that's so you know my knowledge base!

Is there a command to push text into the next column or next page if I have a multi column text box?

Thanks

I think you would have to do some rebuilding, might be possible to save your doc as a .pdf then open in Scribus, you then would only want to replace the text via cut and paste
Scribus 1.5xx

Thanks - does it need 1.5 for this? Open PDF failed with 1.4.8
>> OK - works great with 1.5
