Cool, yeah I think ill have a bit more of a play around in that code and I guess just start with commenting it all out and breaking it into smaller functions. That should help with the need for commenting too I believe!

A quick question. Ive changed QT to use tabs, but it still doesnt use them. So i had to fix my patch manually. Is Tabs working on QT Creator for you?
General Discussion / PDF Form event.change
« Last post by philou7168 on November 08, 2018, 04:37:03 pm »

Sorry for my bad english, but I don't find any Help in French.

I want to Make a presentation PDF Form but I will force the Format of the text field.

For example for the NAME I will the text field in Uppercase. I give this code in custom format:

Format: event.change = event.change.toUpperCase();
Strike: event.change = event.change.toUpperCase();

How can I fond the list of any fonction event.change.XXX.

For example for the Firstname I will force the first letter in Uppercase and all after in Lowercase (Philou).

Thank's for the Help

Have you tried re-saving the file with a different name?

I should say they did a further tweak of some sort which reduced the file size nicely but with no image resolution reduction and is now on Wargame Vault.

They did hint that they'd had enough of sorting out my 'corrupt, horrible files' so revisions and updates aren't possible for me to do, which as you can guess is a pain. Any other books I do for similar target vendor I will upload as and when I make progress because like you, if you are still using Scribus, I want to know if it's going to give me a pdf usable for my purposes before I get to the end of the project  ::)
Text and Typography / Re: Problem with missing glyphs

Restarting a program or the PC, or both is kinda ingrained I guess. So I just had to try it ;)
And to answer your question. Yes. It does show up in the list. And besides that, the rest of the font seems to work fine. Just not the the points, comma's, @'s etc.

Yes. My version of the font does. I know the one you are talking about though. There are a few downloads of the font online that dont include some of the symbols. The one I have does though. And I have tried several different downloads too. So its not one specific download that is causing me this problem.

Thank you for the replies.

hi menno

does your copy of the font contain your missing glyphs?
at least the 'ringbearer medium' downloeded from doesn't.

hi menno

first, (almost as usual) restarting scribus, your computer or even reinstalling scribus does not lead to a solution.
it might work with other programs but i (almost) never experienced that it solved anything in scribus.

now, for your specific matter: i have the feeling that you forgot to give us the most important infomration: does the "ringbearer medium" font show up in the list of fonts?

PDF Generation / How to define a JavaScript action on PDF openening
« Last post by LordYanaek on November 07, 2018, 03:35:48 pm »
Hello. I've looked at some tutorials on interactive PDF creation with Scribus and found how to create interactive forms and buttons but i havn't found how to define an "opening action" (that is, and action that will automatically be triggered when the document is opened rather than when the user clicks on some buttons). This is possible in most PDF creation software, usually through the document properties window but i havn't found a generic pdf properties window in Scribus, just item specific pdf properties and the pdf export window doesn't have any script tab either.

Is this possible, and if it is possible, how do you do this?

In case you're wondering, i just want to add some note that's visible by default and is hidden as soon as the document is opened. That note would explain that JavaScript is disabled and the interactive features won't work which is why i want to hide it using JS (trying to be as fool-proof as possible).

I can actually add it using the unregistered version of Master PDF Editor and it doesn't add a watermark but it would be nice to define this directly in Scribus.

Hi there, my name is Menno and I have been using Scribus frequently for over a year now. I wont call myself an expert, but I think I know enough about Scribus.... This was untill I got a new work computer. It has the same version of windows on it, and except for some hardware upgrades is identical to my old work PC.
I transferred all my old files to my new PC and was ready to get back to work, so I opened one of my ongoing projects in Scribus. And to my amazement half the symbols in the text arent showing up. Amongst them are the @ and the simple point (.).
I checked the font, but it is the same one I used for over a year now in Scribus. I didnt even download a new font since it was amongst the things I transferred from my old PC.
Next thing I did was to check out the file on a colleges PC. And it worked fine. This is when I started to worry.
Other things I tried were a new instalation of scribus, another version of scribus and change the keyboard language in windows. I have restarted my PC several times too.

I have been at it for a day now and havnt been able to find anything like this specific problem on the forums so I thought I would have a go at posting it. In the hope someone could help me.

The font I use is Ringbearer medium. Yes, I know, it is a free downloadable font. But I have used it for ages now, and it works fine with Scribus on other devices.

I am open for suggestions, so dont hold back.

Kind regards

and now to anecdotes:

i have probably  never tried to use the shift selection area to extend an existing election in scribus... until last monday... and was indeed surprised that it does not work. the biggest issue being that instead of having selected the item the "old" one got moved away... and it was not really easy to spot what was happening.

a second anecdote: i used to have a hard time with inkscape's shift-select tool... it took me some time to get used to it... but while i was trying the alt-select area in scribus to see how it would feel, i was missing the red path... and this even if i've almost never used that feature : - )
... i think that the inkscape folks did this spot right... even if it's a surprising solution (to me)...
