Out of curiosity, how old is the system you are using? I suspect your hard drive might be going.

I use Scribus 1.4.8. I want to import text, but I cannot find my text. The file (docx and odt) is not in the folder. I have the picture attached. Can somebody help me?
Looks like you dont have the right type of file in that directory.  If you note the File of Type drop down, in the file dialog it lists the type of files it can import. docx isnt listed there. You may need to resave that file in a format scribus knows how to import. That drop down should have an All Files option you can use to see if the file is really there, check to make sure it is.

hi michael

is the 'autosave' file showing the same message? – if it does, it might be hard to recover the file.
when you show me the file, i will take a look at it and try to recognize the error. if the damage is small, i might be able to just delete some affected objects. but there's no guarantee, as i'm not a coder and crashes can do strange things…

p.s.: the combination of 'a week of work' and 'no backup' should lead to the main lesson to be learned from this crash!

My file has crashed with no backup... I go to open it and it says "An error occurred while parsing file at line 845, column 70760235: Unexpected". There is a weeks work in this file I am hoping to recover.  Anyone have the ability to recover it from the last autosave or something similar? It would be greatly appreciated!  :o

hi ale
hi herrysusanto

this is the text import dialog! and if the path is correct and the text file is there, it should be listed…

hi herry

scribus cannot open .docx or .odt files. but it can load them into text files.

you need to first create a text frame and you can then use "file > load" (or similar) to load the text content of an odt (or docx) into it.

Tutorials, Tips and How-Tos / Re: Formatting tables in 1.5.5

Your reply makes it sound easy. And, there is a Scribus template that includes a table: https://www.scribus-templates.net/templates/boilerplate/ And, in the Style Manager of the template I can see the entries for "Table elements", "Table column titles" and "Table row titles". How do these work in practice? I'm trying to make a Scribus table. Read your reply several times but couldn't make a Scribus table!

Thanks for confirming - it's as I suspected then. Okay, I'll have a check of those other options and see which might be suitable.

Thanks for your time, both
