Thank you for reply. OK. I can't hide them then. Transparency maybe works for objects but only if they aren't grouped.

you cannot really hide items (which is somehow logical) but you can use the main tab of the properties palette to disable the export to pdf.

(and yes, you can hide items by making them transparent...)

Hi,
Is there a way to hide objects on layer instead of hiding the whole layer?

Thank you so much,
Actually, after upgrade to version 1.5 in Windows, it seems that what didn't work before now does :
change color or other attributes do now work under section "frame content editiing"
(I can't be sure exactly if taht's its name, I've got the French version of Scribus)
One can highlight and modify what is highlighted only in that " Frame Content Editor"  which makes sense,
insofar as zooming focus on text is much easier there.
Scribus is going to let me forget about other progs, after some training, of course!

Scriborn,

1. Highlight the text that you want to change the color of in the original text frame.
2. Choose Color & Effects tab
3. Choose the color that you want.

Let me know if you need anymore assistance.

Cheers!

Beginner Talk / mixing text colors on page
« Last post by Scriborn on January 17, 2019, 09:25:16 pm »
As a plain beginner, coming from QXpress I tried to change text color of some lines inside a frame.

After a number of attempts, came up with this :
- creating a rectangular frame
-copy/paste a (mouse)  text selection into the frame
- modify this frame attributes to alter color text
- copy/paste text from the frame back into main paragraph,
adding lines.
- delete the frame that contained the selection.

Now you have a patch of red text wedged into a black text.
I wonder though if it can't be made easier?

interesting approach...

yes, reimporting the pdf file into scribus should work.

if you use multiple layers you can have:

- a layer with items that have transparencies
- a layer with the flattened items
- a layer with the rest of the content

in that way you can turn layers on and off to first create the pdf to be flattened or the final pdfs.

I will have to test that. Even if it doesn't keep the text in vector format, I can still use it to flatten the transparency and then to import the PDF to Scribus again and add the text. Would that work?
