The most common issue is trying to change it for the wrong object.

You are supposed to change it for the image frame, not the text frame.

Text and Typography / Text Flow Around Frame

I am just beginning with Scribus and am currently stumped with one of the tutorials that I am watching.  I have inserted a text box then an image box and the video says to go to text properties in the "Windows; Properties" pull down.  When I go the the "Text Flow Around Frame" it has it "DISABLED"  How do I enable this option?

PDF Generation / Re: Grayscale export
« Last post by utnik on May 15, 2019, 05:17:37 pm »
hi sten

first the most essential part: every .pdf/x-1a file is a valid .pdf/x3 file (but not the other way round…)
  • the specifications for .pdf/x-3 allow mixed content (i.e. cmyk and rgb parts in the same file). that's the reason, why scribus won't convert any color while creating x-3 files.
  • in a .pdf/x-1a file all the content needs to be converted to the output profile. in this case scribus needs to care about the color conversion.
as your placed image is an 'rgb' file, there's no such thing as 'pure black'. (in the 'rgb' model 'black' means no color at all! – wich might be best represented in a rich black when converted to 'cmyk'…)

Exporting PDF/X-1a with image effect grayscale actually works! But as soon as I try PDF/X-3 the color is back. Colud You please explain this in some more detail? Why the difference?

hi sten

…Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? My intention is to export grayscale only.

i don't think of a bug here. as scribus doesn't convert any colors while exporting to .pdf/x-3 (the standard allows mixed color systems), your grayscale image will still be an rgb file…

what happens if you use 'item' → 'image effects' → 'grayscale' and export as a .pdf/x-1a? (i can't check it here – sorry!)

Using Scribus 1.4.8 on windows 10:

Create a new document, 2 pages
Enable color management with default settings
Create a text box and insert sample text on first page
Create image box and insert grayscale image on second page
Export to PDF/X-3 with standard settings

Check PDF with Ghostscript inccov
 0.00000  0.00000  0.00000  0.02364 CMYK OK
 0.08084  0.08091  0.08091  0.02423 CMYK OK
The second page with the picture now contains color channels!

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? My intention is to export grayscale only.

Text and Typography / Re: Primarily configure Bangla / Bengali texts

OMG, it's working now! 
:D
I've been waiting for this day for the last few years.

Thank you very very much a.l.e.

Today I downloaded the Development Version 1.5.4 as per your suggestion and discovered it's working.

Is there any risk in using this version? May I confidently begin creating a book with this version of Scribus?

Well, I'm using Linux Mint 18.

-----------------

Somehow I missed the notification and thought no one replied to my message. What a fool I am. Sorry pal, for this foolishness.

hi salim

all you need is the latest development release of scribus (1.5.4 at the time of writing) and a good otf font that supports your language...

since i only read and write "latin languages" i can't help you much with the font choice.
does anybody in here have any hint?

Please tell me how did you do that? How did you configure Scribus to write/display Bangla texts.

Thanks a lot.
