200 pages is a lot for scribus.

chains of 20 to 30 pages are also rather long.

without further details, i would suggest to split the document in 50 pages sections and try to keep the chains at 10 to 15 pages...

but without seeing the file or having more details it's hard to say....

It will help to receive ideas if you clarify:

(1) PC you are using (Windows/Mac/Linux).
(2) Scribus version
(3) Are you writing your content directly into Scribus using native text editors or using external tools to pre-process content and import content?
(4) Large images embedded?
(5) Is Scribus still slow if you unlink textframes within any chapter?

Musing .. it would be a nice feature if Scribus could offer document statistics to diagnose why compilation is slow.

General Discussion / Scribus Very Slow

So I am working on a book.  It is up to about 200 pages and Scribus is killing me with the slowness.  Saving takes like 5 mins, and even scrolling to the next page takes like 30 secs.  It isn't my computer (plenty of RAM and power), and as far as linked text frames go, my chapters are separated; I am linking about 20-30 pages of text in each chapter.  Is there a way to get Scribus to speed up.  This is making my project take much longer than it should.

Hello, I am relatively new to Scribus and have made a book to be printed at a commercial printing house. They specify that black and white images must be adjusted by 20% for Dot gain. I have done that in Photoshop and inserted the photos in Scribus. But I understand that this adjustment is in fact stored as a profile embedded in the image and I need to be sure that this profile is kept and used when generating pdf. I wonder if I should use "printer" or "grayscale" at export for pages with b/w photos, especially whether this will have any effect on whether the embedded profiles (DotGain adjustments) are used or not.

  For embedded color profiles some other users here mention an option named "use color profiles" to be ticked at export, but I can't see such an option when exporting to pdf ? (Scribus 1.4.7.)
  Images for the cover of the book have been embedded with Fogra39 profile in Photoshop, but I am uncertain as to whether the embedded profiles or the scribus standard setting are applied. The printing house cannot see it directly in the pdf, but they tend to believe that the embedded Fogra 39 profiles are in fact not applied. So I would like to know where I can find the option to apply embedded profiles or not.

Thank you, good to know. I remember a time it was also the case in InDesign.  :D

For now i'm using a .pdf form .ods
Is there a way to do a "smart object" linked to an .ods for exemple ? I didn't find anything link that but perhaps I've missed something.

got the good hint on irc:

https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-manual-development/blob/master/content/qt-creator/qt-creator.md#indenting-with-tabs

you have to change the code style for c++, not the behavior for the editor...

my general hint applies: don't use the tables in scribus (except if you're 100% you want to use them *and* you know how to manage them).
in scribus  the tables are a primitive tool that is only useful in very few cases.

in you're case, you seem on your way to get stuck... if the first thing you want to do is removing the borders and you don't manage to do it.

you'd better invest your time in figuring out alternative ways of doing presenting the information:
use tabs, import tables as "images" from office, or do some real infographics!

one day scribus will get a real tables tool... but it's not there yet.

I'm running the Scribus Version 1.5.4. I try to manage a simple but I cannot get ride of the black lines around the table and the lines around the cells.

Even when I go to properties > table > solids ligns... Put it in White, earse the with the square on the right... nothing works...  :'(

I cannot understand why there is is always lines by default around every objects in Scribus ! And why it is so difficult to get ride of them >:(
