drag on drop does frame to image size, crtl key locks aspect while sizing, also in image properties, you can lock aspect, and right-clicking on image gives a menu
frame to image and image to frame

Beginner Talk / How do I fit a frame to an image?
« Last post by FriendlyPat on August 12, 2019, 03:17:58 pm »
I have a 'standard' way of working with images that I use in a few applications.  Generally, I like to import an image, fit a frame to it, then lock its aspect ratio, and then I can simply move and resize the frame to get my image where I want it.

Is this work-flow possible in Scribus?  If so, how?  If I am simply trying to work in a way Scribus was not meant to work, I'd appreciate a few tips for doing what I want.

My main concern with almost all images, is locking the width/height ratio so I don't distort it.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Kind wishes - Patrick

Text and Typography / Re: Font revisions are ignored

i'm not aware of a "good" way of doing this.

you can of course delete the scribusfont13.rc and/or the scribus140.rc files that you will find the preferences.

i've opened a ticket for a button that clears the font cache...

not much hope that this will happen soon, though...

Text and Typography / Font revisions are ignored
« Last post by SolarGranulation on August 12, 2019, 12:52:43 pm »
I've been designing a few extra characters to use in my document, which has taken a few revisions to get everything matched up correctly. Now I have a problem in that Scribus seems to have somehow stored the original version of that font, which was incorrect, and ignores any updated version.

I originally placed the font file in an Additional Path, and have replaced the version there with the latest revision. I've also installed the latest revision on my system, and it works well in other applications.

But Scribus persists in displaying the original, flawed version of the font.

Is there some cache that I could clear, or another explanation?

the file looks fine to me.

most of the "space" that is not text, is used to define the frames around the text and for defining the tables and their cells.

in the .sla file everything takes a bit more space than strictly needed if the file format would have created in order to save disk space... but, well, it does not look that terrible to me.

if you  don't have embedded images, than the file will mostly "contain" text, yes.
or vector shapes, if you have outlined text or complex vector drawings.

if you share your .sla file we can tell you more...
