Beginner Talk / Re: "Get Image" no longer displays image
« Last post by VW1984 on July 03, 2020, 04:30:14 pm »
@RodneyLee  Would I export the first 100 pages, or so, as pdf then erase that section of the book in Scribus? Then do the next 100, and the last 100 the same way?

Is there a way in Scribus to combine three different pdf files into one?

I'm looking to print on Lulu dot com, they require one complete file.

Thanks for your previous reply.

running out of memory?, you might want to do your book in 3 parts or at least test to see if you can then load more images

Beginner Talk / "Get Image" no longer displays image

Why are my images no longer inserting into my project?

I am inserting 303 images into a 303 page book.

The images are 6"x9" .jpg 300 dpi text converted from .pdf using mac Automator.

Scribus ver 1.4.8
Mac OS 10.13.6

For 256 pages I was able to insert and adjust images to frame.  After that, getting image only resulted in a red "X".

The computer's activity monitor shows Scribus using 3.03 GB of memory.

The folder of files I am inserting from has not moved or been edited.

'double page right' with scribus 1.4.8 works for me.
if it doesn't for you, i would check the settings in your .pdf reader.

General Discussion / Formatting Book and text frames
« Last post by TNGEO on July 01, 2020, 08:33:19 pm »
I recently formatted a book with Scribus, and when I had to delete a page, all of the pages following had to be re-formatted with the right and left master pages, ok. Not a problem, not unexpected.

But dang, the text frames had to all be re-aligned with the page frame.

I'm not a coder. Is there any way to have the text frames auto-align with the change of pages? Anyone have a clue?

Thanks.

I don't have the option 'facing page right' with Scribus 1.4.8.
There are:
single
continuous
double page left
double page right

I tried a dozen times for a draft (not final copy unfortunately): I do not know why but one of them came out correctly as 'facing page right' and the reader does not change it on two computers. Why? Does it make a difference which pdf version option is chosen perhaps?

i had a look at the file. it ended inside a really big embedded .psd image (around 100 megabytes). this image wasn't closed. it might have been even bigger – and could be the source of the crash…
i couldn't really recover the file. i removed the broken image and added the closing lines for a valid .xml file. the file is readable again but the part of code below the image is lost.

when i export a .pdf with 'facing page right' checked in the 'viewer' tab of the export window, at least my copy of adobe reader shows the file starting with a single page and then in double pages.
but some readers may overwrite the settings of the file. (even adobe reader might be set up to overwrite them – i didn't try…)

I can fix the problem by using PDF Writer and adding a new page before the first page of the exported pdf document. But, that's not the issue. Either I and other people who have posted about this phenomenon are missing something about Scribus to pdf export settings or there is a bug somewhere. Either way, it would be nice to get help!
