Hello,

I have text placed inside a text box which is a shape transformed into a text box.

A diagonal blank line appears in the middle of the text (see attachment).

I have tried copying the text from notepad and wordpad, and clearing formatting, but to no avail.

Also, it only does this on some shapes, but not on others.

I'd be very grateful for any ideas on how to get rid of this?

Beginner Talk / Re: Script or Method of Copying All Images?

Is there a specific reason you want to do this in Scribus? Are you for example going to add a lot of text too?

I guess it can probably be scripted, but there are likely other ways to "print" 200 images than importing them into a Scribus document.

Beginner Talk / Script or Method of Copying All Images?
« Last post by meowmix on February 13, 2020, 02:15:54 am »
Hello all,

Can anyone tell me the best way to copy all images from a directory, without adjusting scale, and then pasting one per page (doesn't need to be in any particular order) in an open Scribus document? Is there an easy way to do this, or a script? So far, I've only seen scripts that place multiple images per page, adjust the sizing, etc. I just want to copy about 200 images straight into a document. No bells or whistles.


Thanks in advance for pointing me in the right direction!

I know this is an old post, but I had the same problem and discovered something. I set up a line style for the first time because I was using lines to separate different subjects on the same page. Somehow I had the page text box selected when I clicked on the line style I'd saved, and it put a line around the text box. The line stayed when I was in preview mode, so it will print. I'm happy to discover this since it makes some pages look right for my purpose.  8)

1. Chinese input OK (v1.4.6)
The version of scribus 1.4.6 installed through command "apt install scribus" in debian stretch:
If the default font was set to English font, the Chinese input is NG; if set to Chinese font, Chinese input is OK.

2. Chinese input NG (v1.5.5svn)
The appimage version of scribus 1.5.5svn:
With the appimage version of scribus 1.5.5svn,  I cannot enter text directly regardless of the default font is Chinese or English.

--------
I guess that, with appimage 1.5.5svn, the system can NOT call up the Chinese input method(fcitx), and, with 1.4.6 installed through command "apt install scribus", the system can call up the Chinese input method(fcitx).
So, 1.4.6 is OK, 1.5.5svn is NG.

Congrats, you can upload a file here  or to a cloud service/file share and post the link other people may test it also

Check default Font, (before and after clicking inside text frame) can I assume you set computer language to Chinese?

Hi Rodney,

Yes, it does show errors (which I just ignored, and hit the export to PDF anyway).

I can't remember, but I'm pretty sure the error box also showed on the pared down version that I did manage to export to pdf (in which I just reduced the number of words on  the page).

You say you'd be willing to check my file? That would be much appreciated! How do we do that?

Ok, well I managed to save as a PDF!

Only problem is, I'm not quite sure what I did...

Could be one (or both) of these two things I did:

-I downloaded Scribus 5 (I was using 4.8) and opened the sla file I had done in 4.8
-I toggled around with the Font subsets

... and it printed just fine.

I can not input Chinese in the text frame after double clicking it, but, I can input English.

The Scribus version:
appimage
1.5.5 svn 23095
Build ID: C--T-F-C1.15.10-64bit
Ghostscript versioin: 9.26
Debian Stretch 9.11 / gnome

I extracted the appimage by running
Code: [Select]
./Scribus-1.5.5-linux-x86-64.AppImage --appimage-extract, then go to squashfs-root/ and run
Code: [Select]
./AppRun, and, the screen shows me some err tips like the attached screenshot.

After that, I tested the Scribus 1.4.6 installed from debian stretch apt command
Code: [Select]
apt install scribus. In 1.4.6, I can not input Chinese also, but, I can input Chinese in the frame name box.

I have been using the import method before, until today to modify one word with double clicking the text frame.

How to make it work?(double click the text frame and input Chinese)
When I just want to modify or input a few words (maybe only one word or two words), it's not convenient to open the story editor。


ps:
I had tested 1.5.5svn appimage and 1.4.6 in a virtual machine(debian stretch 9.11/xfce4), and got the same result.

ps2:
I can input Chinese in the LibreOffice appimage version and installed version by "apt install" command.
