yes. i build and run it successfully. truly speaking i didn't expected this much fast response and fix. i totally wondered. and ofcourse  i will try to understand the code. expecting guidance from all of you



hi ale,

I tested the patch that andreas given with latest scribus code and it is working perfectly. I amazed about the solution. This was real life saver for us. Thank you for your quick response and patch. I think this will fix the problem for all indic langauges. Because Malayalam is the most complex indic language with lot of complex rules. So it may work for all.

Thanks for this amazing fix

Best,

You are welcome. I'll have a closer look over the weekend re. PostScript output and other cases.

I usually don't hang around here, so if you want a response from me, you either have to alert a.l.e or send a mail to scribus-dev :-)

so, as jean and andreas discussed in the bug tracker, the patch does solve a short term problem but is not a complete solution.

if you read a bit their comments in the bug tracker and try to read the code around the patch already proposed by andreas, you will already have an idea about how it works.

don't hesitate to ask for details... i might be able to help or can ask further...
(or somebody from the team might show up in here... or you might join also the irc channel for more interactive discussions)

just a side note: as far i can tell, for latin fonts it's very unusual to create condensed "text" by changing the width of the letters... you normally use a condensed variation of the font... and if you just try condense a font by 20%, you don't get a good result. of course, i cannot judge how good the result is for the noto / malayalm font.

if its just "Headlines" why not do a .svg in inkscape, scaling would be perfect

we suggested that. and the layout workers are little bit worried about the total shift from pagemaker. this migration plan is going on about 6 months. main problem was condensation. in news paper lay-outing last column shoud be aligned. to make this some condensation is needed in last paragraph of body text too.

hi mujeebcpy,

if you look at the patch andreas has put in the bug tracker you will notice that scribus uses cairo for the display on screen and its own library for creating the pdf.

the patch is "very simple" and studying it will help you understand a bit how scribus works in a part of the code that is very important for indic and arabic languages : - )

currently, i have to first get my own copy of the scribus code to compile again, then i can test if the changes proposed by andreas work for me!

i'll get back to you very soon

I think this really shows the power of Open Source development.
