General Discussion / Automated workflow
« Last post by ghesling on March 13, 2019, 01:07:09 am »
Apologies if this is an obvious question, but I'm not a graphic designer and our use case appears to be an edge case in desktop publishing.  We don't publish data, we format data to be published.  That is, every day we take weather, stocks, TV listings, etc. and put it into a client-specific template, review and approve the result and send the final copy to the client for publication.  Rinse and repeat.  We may have to manually tweak a few things (cut some copy, add a photo, etc.) but our process is so automated that each deliverable gets < 5 minutes of review.  The current system custom-built system is well past its use-by date and I'm hoping Scribus could manage, or at least be part of, this workflow.

I see Scribus has command-line scripts, and I could use another tool to orchestrate the overall process, but I don't know how (or if) Scribus can merge today's data with the client's template. 

Thanks in advance.

In the U.S. standard bleed is .125" (1/8") beyond the document size.

Cheers!

I'm thinking of starting over again. Is there a recommended bleed setting, as far as measurement?

normally, one is supposed to setup the bleeds at the beginning of the project...

for existing documents, you can set the bleed in file > document settings > document (the default section) and look for the "bleeds" tab.

but you'll probably have to resize all the affected images after that...

I created a set of brochures/documents and forgot to account for bleed. Is there a setting that automatically increases the page size and adds crop marks for the printer or do I have to do it manually?

use image properties to scale images inside frames, it's all there.

Hi,
I do have the exact same question and would be soo happy this would work!

I must say I'm absolutely new in scribus after having worked with indesign for years...

how do you experienced users deal with this issue?

PDF Generation / Prefix Plus
« Last post by dcollins on March 12, 2019, 06:02:48 am »
I have a field that's being filled with a custom calculation script (always an integer). If positive, I'd like this value to be prefixed with a visible plus (+) sign. What the best way to do that?

MacOS / Re: Document Won't Open 'Crashes due to signal #6'

I have been able to recover corrupted *.sla file using XMLCopyEditor.

http://xml-copy-editor.sourceforge.net/

Try validating the *.sla file (which is XML format).

If it cannot be validated then the internal XML code needs to be corrected.

[Later edit] If you search for "signal #6" you will find this thread which (although referring to Linux) identifies Qt libraries as cause.

... it's maybe possible to rescue the content, but for that we need the .sla file...
