Bitmap Images / placing images inside table cells
« Last post by enzogian on May 16, 2018, 02:54:10 pm »
Hi,
I wonder how do I manage to insert (import) images inside the cells of a table ?
PS: I am new to this forum so not sure on all the protocols to follow when asking or reporting an issue..  (I am using the 1.5.4 version running on Windows 10)
Thanks and regards

Looks like all background colors are set to black. If none is used it will be tranparent but in all other cases black. My partner have the same problem after windows update now in april 2018. We are using the same styles.

I've never heard of such an issue...

Can you share a file where you see all black?

During windows update recently I had to install scribus. Most text frames are all black but the text is visible in the editor window. In properties window the colors is showing black in left column. I have installed 1.5.4 and gs 9.23. windows 10 latest version. What have happened? What can I do to get back to normal?

for simple booklets, you can often just use your pdf reader / printer driver and set it to print a booklet...

hi guillaume

scribus is not a drawing tool. it's a layout program.

you can do some drawing in scribus and it even has some very advanced feature, but it also lacks some basic features (like snapping to nodes and lines).

can i suggest you to do your perspective exercises with inkscape? (if you want to go for vector drawing)

(and for "erasing" in scribus: you can use the path tools to intersect, unite and cut... but, really, go for inkscape!)

I have not used it in awhile but you could try:

http://www.quantumelephant.co.uk/bookbinder/bookbinder.html  (though it only uses standard sizes and does not understand bleed)

There used to be one called jImposition but I cannot seem to find it and it looks like no one retrieved the project code from Google Code before it shut down in 2015 and another one named multivalent, but I think that one is a command line only.

Not many free options for the mac and I have not used them, but here are some inexpensive ones such as:

http://www.montax-imposer.com/products
http://www.devalipi.com/purchasebm.html

or you could try your local copy/printshop, I usually charge $1.00/page to impose a file for a customer.  I hope these get you to a starting point.

Matt Fussell has written a small tutorial, How to Draw in One Point Perspective, and the idea of making a cube enticed me to try.   The theory asks for a large square and a smaller one inside it.  The two are to be connected by “orthogonal” lines that go from the corners toward the horizon where they gather in one point.  The line segments that extend out and away from the two shapes have become unnecessary and must be erased.  That is where I had a problem, how do you erase without an eraser tool?  I had drawn a number of boxes with the line tool.  That was a wrong choice; I tried the curve tool, did an edit and, with the help of nodes, finally was able to cut away the unwanted segments.
