PDF Generation / Failed to embed the PDF file
« Last post by ajytojen on May 20, 2018, 07:20:12 pm »
Hi all,

When exporting a project containing a PDF inserted in a Image Frame as PDF with the option "Embed PDF & EPF files (EXPERIMENTAL)" enabled, the resulting file has a rasterized version of the PDF.

During the export, scribus outputs: "Failed to embed the PDF file" in the console. I have scribus 1.4.7 on arch linux.

I tried with several pdfs (I attached a test pdf and the resulting export) and the problem persists.
I also tried to export the project on a different machine (Linux Mint) with scribus 1.4.6 and it works fine...

Any ideas of what could be the problem and how I could debug it?

Thanks

I have been doing manual "printer spreads" for years (early 90's Amiga DTP), two years ago I sent in a project and the printer printed in "reader spread" and I didn't notice it on the proof, that really sucked.
I had never known the term Imposition or that software could do it for you

Preferences are for any new document created, Document setup is for the current document.

Many of the tools are written in java, they should work on Mac.

I searched the wiki and the forum, but didn't find these terms.

You should have searched for "imposition", because that is the correct term for arranging pages onto a sheet.

Yes, I do like that feature in InDesign for viewing the different spread layouts.  I can list out the imposed page layout numbers for printer spreads if you would like, all I need is the number of pages total and it needs to be divisible by 4 or you will end up with blank pages.  Here is an example of a 16 page imposed layout to help you visualize:

16  |  01
02  |  15
14  |  03
04  |  13
12  |  05
06  |  11
10  |  07
08  |  09

Windows / Re: Most frames all black after reinstall
« Last post by ulfa on May 19, 2018, 04:15:02 pm »
The backup file is much older and not with the final content. The colours looks however ok in that file. As you don't have a simple answer that explains the behaviour I believe the best way is to start with a earlier version next time and hope the black frames were created by our mistake and not something in the program code. Next issue is in the end of june. If this occur again I will be back. So far many thanks for your engagemant.

i would do the imposition stuff (rearranging pages for printer spreads) with a .pdf manipulating tool like 'jpdfTweak' – works on linux, macOS and windows.

See if this helps.  As far as I understand, Scribus only sets up documents in reader spreads or individual pages.  You need imposition software to create printer spreads unless you set it up manually in Scribus and only having four pages would be easy to do.  First 11x17 would be page four on the left and page one on the right, Second 11x17 would be page two on the left and page three would be on the right.

I see. I just assumed that Scribus would work similarly to inDesign and handle both at the click of a mouse...  I should've also mentioned in my original post that this is to be folded in the same way as a calendar.
