General Discussion / Re: Problems?
« Last post by jed7@cox.net on January 15, 2020, 09:45:53 pm »
I just redid a part of the post.  One suggestion would be to increase the time out.  I know an hour seems like a long time, certainly time enough for one little post; however, some of us have a life.  Throw in a few phone calls and people stopping by with questions and suddenly it (and my post) is gone.

Regards,

General Discussion / Scribus 1.4.8
« Last post by jed7@cox.net on January 15, 2020, 09:42:24 pm »
I have been a Scribus user for the past 4 or 5 years.  I made the mistake of downloading 1.4.8.
"Use this branch if you want to work with a thoroughly tested software without any unpleasant surprises."  This is a joke, right?
Just try to open a .pdf file.  You can get it into a Scribus document by treating it as an image file but the result is useless.  It's ragged and blurry.
Also, can't get postscript to load properly.  The pdf standard has been around since 2008 and Postscript has been around for 30 years.
I also can't get Inkscape .svg files to load correctly.  A beautiful Inkscape file is reduce to useless rubbish.
Is there any hope?
I think I hear the violins in the background!
regards,
jd

yep, that's sad...

happens often to me too.

most of the time because the login has expired.
(when i notice that there is a risk, i tend to copy the text to the clipboard before posting... on the other side, most of the time, when i've lost my message, then i tend to write a shorter one, to the benefits of everybody else : - )

this having been said, if you have practical suggestions for improving the forum, we will listen...
and pray that things will change one day...

I just lost my complete message when I hit the POST button.  No, I'm not going to retype it.  This on top of the problems with Scribus.  At least Scribus used to work.  Let's start by fixing  the forum software.

hi rodneylee

yes, this is a known problem when different text styles are applied to the frame and to the last paragraph. (there should be an old bug report somewhere…) – but is this really what marc calls 'so much hassle'?
i would be glad to get rid of this issue, but in my workflow (with apropriate style settings) i almost never notice any signs of it…

hi yichuang

Very strange~
Linux and 1.5.5 svn?

my first test was with macOS and scribus 1.5.6.svn.
but now i did the same with lubuntu and 1.5.5 and everything works as expected.

hi yichuang

i took a look at your file. as 'jfl' already said,  there's no problem with the font or the styles. but if your indent (and lefthand tabulator) doesn't provide the space for your numbers, the text will begin at the next standard tab stop (which is every 1/2" or 12.7mm by default…)

ps:
I tested the original file with 1.5.6 svn, and another test in a virtual machine(debian/stretch 9.11/xfce4) that has never run scribus before, the results are all NG~

Beginner Talk / Re: Grid not behaving as expected
« Last post by core on January 15, 2020, 03:14:03 pm »
I had totally forgotten about this thread until these most recent of posts.
I am a long time Inkscape user and picked up Scribus because I wanted to make a PDF booklet.
I achieved my goals and put Scribus back down.

Ironically I picked it back up again because the need for a booklet once again arose.
But I can understand the comments about the grids.
There seems to be 2 issues here:

Mine in which I found that the grids, the way they were implemented, are pretty limited in their use.
Grids are not the ideal tool for achieving alignment in Scribus (?, not a power user at all so hard to comment at this point)

I suggest to the dev team to quietly remove this function. It will save a lot of time for the newbies like me screwing around trying to get a similar behaviour as grids in Inkscape.

my 2c worth

Thanks everyone for pitching into this. I learnt something today

Here is the link(with fonts):
Maybe I'm missing something but I didn't have any problem adapting your styles. See attachments (screenshot plus modified SLA file).

Cheers,
JFL

Wow!

I downloaded the .sla file you uploaded and open it in my system, it's OK as your screenshot. Why?
I opened my original file, it's still NG, like the screenshot 115.png.

My scribus version is an appimage, version 1.5.5, the same as yours. And, 20190731, svn version:23095; Build ID: C--T-F-C1.15.10-64bit, Ghostscript version:9.26.
Os: Debian Stretch 9.11/ gnome 3.22.2

And yours?
