Beginner Talk / Re: variables or dynamic text frames
« Last post by a.l.e on Today at 06:07:14 pm »
variable text, in a few way (iirc) has been added to the development version but is not in the stable Scribus 1.4...

so it depend on which version you're using...
Hi everyone!

As a Linux user, I have taken the icc profiles for my Epson Stylus SX445W from its OS X and Windows driver installers.

- - -

What can I do to make Scribus recognize the printer icc profiles?

Thanks in advance.


I am in exactly the same situation.
* Linux
* Epson XP-860
* ICC files from Windows

Are not recognized... did you find a way to solve this?
Beginner Talk / variables or dynamic text frames
« Last post by roboPhil on Today at 04:33:59 pm »
Hello :)
I would like to know if there is a way to control text frame with dynamic content or variables.
I'm using Scribus for project documentation and I have a bunch of templates (scrapbooks I guess) and in the footer I want to put the name of the projet and I can't find a way to autopopulate that textframe so I don't have to go into every scrapbook layout to put the information.
hope you can help me !!!
thanks ;)

it is not worth, to spend the time needed to get scribus to directly print.

create a pdf and use a pdf viewer to print the file.
Beginner Talk / Printing A5 booklet problems
« Last post by gquick on Today at 12:16:43 pm »
I have created a 2 page A5 document in an A4 sheet.  When I print to my Epson Stylus DX7400 printer, using multipage printer option, it prints the two pages correctly side by side but the size of the printer document is approx 70% of the original size.  Any suggestions why it is not printing full size ?


When I export the document as a pdf file and print in the same way, the document prints full size !

Je suis en train de lâcher Adobe quand je me suis rendu compte que le logiciel créé un compte cloud et met notre travail en ligne voir public sans qu'on s'en rende compte :o

Le choix est entre lire la documentation Adobe sur le cloud... ou soit se faire la documentation Scribus et Gimp. C'est ce que je vais faire, quoi que racheter une ancienne version Photoshop n'est pas impossible non plus.

*** this is about the french "speaking" manuals linked in this thread ***
*** it's the original work having lead to ***

le pdf et le papier documentent la version 1.4 et devraient avoir le même contenu.
(je n'ai pas contrôlé, mais la couverture est la même... et je ne voies pas pourquoi le contenu devrait différent).

le manuel que tu linké et auquel j'ai fais référence n'est pas le manuel officiel, ni la version qui se trouve dans l'aide en ligne de scribus (F1)

ce manuel a été créé par flossmanuals francophone et l'association le vende en ligne et sur leurs stands (par exemple aux RMLL et au capitole du libre).

il est un peu daté mais très probablement encore relativement actuel.
pour l'instant je n'ai pas entendu des gens se plaindre : - )

et oui, les bouquin de flossmanuals francophone sont de bonne qualité!

Welcome to the forum dsigmon.

As a.l.e has already said, "Document Setup" should be used to change the settings for the current document and "Preferences" should be used to change future document settings. (If they don't work that way then they need to be fixed.)

Until today, when I have been in to confirm the issue, I've never tried to change the text settings (on either OSX, Windows or Linux) via Document Setup or Preferences because it's far easier to do it via the Properties Palette, or Styles as a.l.e also mentioned.

Some of the settings in Document Setup / Tools / Text - for example, fill colour - are applied but not all are - e.g. font. It's a bit of a mish-mash of both text and frame settings in there. Possibly a hang-over from before styles were introduced perhaps? Best not to use them unless you really need to.

Maybe, since the font and font size settings have no effect - and therefore no-one can be using them - a good idea would be to take just the font and font size options out - so the user has to change the default style - and leave the rest in place since they might be used by some people.

You probably didn't find anything on the web about it because nobody uses it much, if at all.
