Beginner Talk / Re: Vertically expanding bounding box for text
« Last post by utnik on March 31, 2020, 10:09:37 pm »
hi sidetrail

you're right, my solution doesn't work with scribus 1.4.8 (afaik you need a recent version of 1.5.6.svn…)
your solution doesn't look bad. but i would extend the lines a little bit to match them with the header and footer lines.

Thanks very much for taking the time to get back to me. I wasn't able to make your suggestion work because that option doesn't seem to appear in my version (1.4.8), but I'll try it with the latest dev version. In the mean time, however, I think I've come up with an acceptable workaround by using a line of em dashes before and after the special text section (see attached).

hi sidetrail

it is not as easy as with word…
i would set the desired text distances and after inserting the text use the command 'item' → 'adjust' → 'adjust frame height to text'.
this works well in the latest development versions of scribus. but it was buggy until recently.

Beginner Talk / Vertically expanding bounding box for text
« Last post by sidetrail on March 31, 2020, 02:05:27 am »
I've just gotten started with Scribus and after watching some good video tutorials and reading through the manaul, I haven't found an answer to this question.

I'm trying to create a special paragraph style that includes a bounding box that will expand vertically down and over to the next column (by linking text frames) based on how much text is entered. I can do this in OpenOffice, but I'd like to use Scribus to take advantage of the more sophisticated layout options it has.

The attached image shows an example of what I'm trying to do - the text with the faint blue background and the frame around it, specifically. I don't want to have to manually resize a separate text frame to accomplish that, if possible.

Is this possible in Scribus?

Thanks in advance.

hi andy

your link should be at least 'www.andrewscottmusic.com', not just 'andrewscottmusic.com'.

PDF Generation / Can't Add Link in PDF Export
« Last post by AndyScott53 on March 24, 2020, 01:23:12 am »
I am using Scribus 1.4.8 on a Mac.
I'm trying to add a link in the bottom of the attached file.
i want the link to go to https://www.andrewscottmusic.com.
However, when I generate the PDF, the link tries to find a file on my site.
A developer can get it to work from the attached SLA with Scribus 1.4.6 on Windows.
Is this a bug or am I missing something?

General Discussion / Re: How to Recover My Files

i've sent you a link to the "rescued" file in a private message.

it's all in one single document, but i'm able to open this as "fast" as the backup from january, so you should also be able to open it.

if you can't open it, just say so and i'll split it in multiple files for you.

for splitting it, you can simply open the file, save it as a copy and then delete the pages you don't want to keep in that part of the document.
repeat until you have small enough chunks you can comfortably work with (most of the time the limit is by 50 to 80 pages...)

later, i'll upload the script i've used for extracting the images from the .sla... if somebody is curious or for those who will have a similar issue in the future.

ciao

Thank you! You really saved the day here.

How long did it end up taking you? And is the email you sent it from connected to your PayPal?

hi mark

it'shard to tell the difference between pages one to 30 and the last two pages…
did you insert the pagination via master pages?
