Features / Use Python 3 instead Python 2 - external path
« Last post by Eng.DarkAlchemist777 on February 04, 2020, 09:34:25 pm »
How can I use Python 3 instead of Python 2 (discontinued) on Python?
I'd like to configure the Python 3 directory instead of the built-in installation. So I could update my Python to a newer version and no depend on a static version.
The image illustrate the idea.

can you make a sample .sla file that this happens in so we can test it and see what's going on?, what's your set up (PC) and version of Scribus

Text and Typography / Re: Gutter around image for text to flow

(Though, frankly, this seems like a lot of drilling down and manual configuration for such a super common - if not default - design feature.)

I agree, it's too complex a process. You can mitigate some of the pain by using the 2 "Enlarge..." sets of buttons in the "Nodes" dialog.

Have you tried setting another font in "Settings/Display font"? It works for me (Scribus 1.5.5).

Beginner Talk / Questions Regarding Table boarders
« Last post by Mobilesailor on February 04, 2020, 03:32:25 am »
Greetings! I'm working on recreating some tables that I've made in word (image below). So far I've been able to duplicate the general structure of our datasheets (image below) but i still have a few questions regarding how to use tables, specifically...
 
- Am I able to make visible only several sides of a table border? I am aware of how to make the border of an entire textbox visible, however, with the way I have everything set up I only need some of the borders of a given textbox to be visible.

- Is there a way to have the textboxes expand as I type in them? That is one of the benefits of working with tables in Word/WPS, but it seems to be the case that if I type past the bounds of a textbox in Scribus the excess words simply disappear beyond the border of the text frame. This is not exactly the end of the world, as I know I can adjust the textboxes accordingly, but it wouldn't hurt if I could use that feature.

And my general question is whether or not my table is efficient, or if there is a better way to go about creating these. I'm sure I have more questions regarding tables, but if someone is able to shed light on these questions that would be much appreciated!

All my photos have different DPI values, some as low as 72 DPI, but seem OK to the eye. Scribus stops the save due to a photo which is more than this. Do all the images have to be the same DPI value? as Ive set it to 72. my lowest value, in the pdf save window. not checking the compress box seems to make no difference. Not familiar with those settings, any pointers would be appreciated

You can merge PDF's, Scribus can handle the Book if your computer can.
