Layout Issues / First line offset - misaligned baselines
« Last post by eudoxos on March 19, 2018, 05:00:30 pm »
I am using trunk (1.5.4svn). I have several vertically aligned frames, containing alternately thai and romanized thai. I would like the baselines to be vertically aligned. The "First Line Offset" option has a few options, but not all of the mare useful in this situation.

"Line spacing" should have solved the issue (as I can set that one in style settings) but it is higher if the glyphs are higher than line spacing, such as in this example of stacked tone mark & vowel in Thai.

Is this a bug or is it expected? I read somewhere the first line offset undergone substantial changes in 1.5.x, maybe this went unnoticed? IMHO the spacing should be kept regardless of material sticking out.

What is the way to align baselines? Please don't suggest baseline grid (too inflexible, I have several rows of those and need to move them around). Table would be good? How is baseline computed there?


PS Related: how can I change first line offset for several frames at once? Multiple selection disables the option panel.

hi zorc

scribus doesn't 'have' any color profiles (except a generic one…)
if it doesn't show a specific profile, you have to put it into the directory where scribus looks for color profiles. the path varies a bit, depending of your os. but you can find it under 'preferences' → 'paths' → 'color profiles'

Installation and Setup / Re: Scribus doesn't pick up my printer icc profile

this might be the wrong question, does it work when printing to a .PDF?

It's not related to print-time, but to general print settings. In "Preferences -> Color Management -> Printer" you should theoretically be able to select whatever printer profiles you have installed in your system. In my case, as I say in OP, I put my manually installed ones in ~/.color/icc/, where allegedly Scribus looks for them. It looks like Scribus seems to honor the icc profiles I put in there, except for the specific printer ones.

Creating a TOC manually is a very different process to creating it using the in-built functions.

a.l.e's suggestion of "simply create a paragraph style with a right tab, with a dot filling..." doesn't give the user enough information.

If the TOC is being created manually then they need to apply the style via the PP. On the other hand, if they are creating the TOC automatically then they need to tell the TOC to use the style via Document Setup.

Just creating a style doesn't apply any formatting changes. The formatting must be applied and how you apply it is different in each case. So, in this rare case, a.l.e's advice does not actually do anything in a practical sense.

Does this answer your question?

hi whyz

your posts aren't easy to understand (at least not for me…)
if you really mean 'imposition' (booklet reorder), you should export your work as a .pdf file and process the resulting file in a simple .pdf handler.
i use 'jpdftweak' for such tasks (hope it works with win 10…)

I am using WIN 10, Firefox Quantum 58.0.1, and Scribus 1.4.8. I have saved the screen shot as a .jpg (and .png).

Screenshot to show the view you mention?  Which OS are you using and which version of Scribus?  I am confused, do you mean imposition of the pages after you create the pdf?

Hi, I am making a multi-page booklet that I'm needing to save as a pdf in order to print it correctly. However, I don't want to go to every single page and "select all" to each of them as it seems I must (I'd show the view if I knew how to put it on this msg). I'm sure many of you know a short cut since I can't imagine you having to do it to a book. Please help, if you can. (TAIA)
