hi jim

i did some checks:

- you have the rights to upload attachments. (and this is confirmed by the fact that you did upload two PNGs)
- you have 4 contributions, which are the ones i see in this thread.
- i the logs i have access to, there is no trace of a failed upload.

and the screenshots seem to show that you correctly did setup the facing pages in scribus (but are wrongly using the grid... hint: never activate the grid, except if you're doing vector graphics... which you probably should not do with scribus...).
and it shows a pdf view that is not correct.
but i have no clue, how you did create the other view.

are you going through "file > export > to pdf..."?

if you upload the .sla and pdf i can:

- check that the pdf indeed shows up with facing pages / with the correct starting page
- check that the creator of the pdf is the scribus pdf engine
- check the document setup for the .sla
- try to produce a .pdf from that .sla and see what heppens

... all things that i cannot do with a png.

you might want to try to first zip the .sla and .pdf and upload the zip...

ciao

I tried to POST again and the two attachments upload for a couple minutes then the screen switches to some general screen and  there is no post....no explanation

I thought since you seem to be a knowledgeable forum moderator you might know what is going on.  I certainly do not.

I would have thought the post with the screen shots would have been some help .....did you look at them?


Thanks, Jim

It's unlikely that your computer is messing up.

... Computer are very rational beings and tend to do exactly what you tell me to do...

One possible cause could be that your font does not have the pilcrow (ΒΆ) sign... but it's a bit unlikely...

You might need to to look for support in your neighborhood (somebody who sees what is happening on your screen...)

I did exactly that, but it didn't work for me. Maybe it's my computer messing up?

Thanks for replying. Lets start with two  screenshots, the first is of the  top of my .sla file which shows the first page on the right at top. The second is the resulting PDF.

I have the top page which is page 1 set as a normal right page and as you can see it ends up as the first page on the left. The book printer has told me that the first page has to be on the right and of course that is the way it must be or the content is jumbled

Could it be related to page numbering? i am a real newbie at this so obviously I am not doing it correctly

Thanks and please let me know if you still need to see the .sla file

scribus does not support all svg features that inskcape inkscape does.

this having been said, the tutorial you're following is imo only useful if you exactly know which cmyk colors you will to replace the rgb colors in the svg.
(as an example, for a logo created with inkscape and you have graphic charter to follow...)
from the screenshot you have posted, i have a hard time believing that you will want to do that with that specific image.

if all you want is a pdf automatically converted to cmyk for printing purposes, going through an high resolution png might be an ok workaround.

i'm not aware that there might be a problem there...

can you provide a sample .sla and a .pdf generated from it that shows the issue?
