Beginner Talk / Leader Dots and Indesign Package Feature
« Last post by Rion on February 10, 2019, 08:08:59 pm »
Two questions in one, sorry guys!

So I read this forum post ( http://forums.scribus.net/index.php?topic=2737.0 ) in regards to creating leader dots. I followed the steps, but when I get to the Tabulators pop-up, I don't understand how I'm supposed to use it. How would I apply Leader Dots to this, for example:

" Peter Prescott . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Brother of the Groom "

----

My second question. On InDesign there is a Package feature, which allows you to retrieve all resources (such as text, images, etc) individually and place them into one centralized folder. Does Scribus have anything like this?

Thank you again for your time!

OK, I checked in File -> Preferences -> Fonts, and the font is there, with the box "use font" checked.
As a sanity check, I can use the same font in Libreoffice, and it displays the correct glyphs.

the story editor does not matter.

you have to check if the font is in file > preferences > fonts...

Text and Typography / missing glyphs
« Last post by dztypesetter on February 10, 2019, 05:35:00 am »
I'm trying to use characters from the font "Noto Music Regular".  The font is loaded, and appears in the font menu in Story Editor.  The glyph that I want is unicode 0x1D1AA, and is called "musical symbol combining down bow".  I clicked "Insert->Insert Glyph", and in the Character Plette dialog, I clicked "Search" to bring up the Unicode Search dialog.  I entered "down bow", and the glyph I want pops up.  I insert it, making sure the inserted character is set to the correct font.

It appears in the doucment as an open square--I figured that just meant there was no screen rendering of that font.  But when I export to PDf, it complains about a missing glyph, and if I click "ignore errors" it does not show up at all in the PDF output.

What am I missing?  Is there a way to get Scribus to use these glyphs?

Raster and Vector Graphics / No text when importing PDF with Get Vector File
« Last post by beojan on February 09, 2019, 12:13:02 pm »
When I use Get Vector File to import a PDF, the text is not imported.

I tried converting to EPS first, but this seems to be rasterized (even using Get Vector File).

The best solution I've found is simply opening the PDF and copy-pasting it. The text is converted to an outline (any way to stop this?),
but otherwise it seems to work.
