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!

Utnik,

If you mean Adobe Reader settings, have tried all the settings and they do not change a thing.

The pages of the document are coloured for children and the pdf needs to preserve the way the document looks with Scribus. For example,

                                                                                Page1 is navy
                                              Page2 is green          Page3 is green
                                              Page4 is orange        Page5 is orange
                                              Page6 is cyan            Page7 is cyan
                                              Page8 is orange        Page9 is orange
                                              etc etc

I found this helpful when working with colours. For example, if all of the text is dark grey in colour, set the default character style to dark grey and then just choose that as the default base for your individual paragraph styles - saved time when working with several colours.
Can also be used for formatting words and phrases within a text box that is defined by a specific paragraph style - helpful if the same formatting occurs in several places.

Hi Utnik,

What are 'reader settings' and where are they?

My document looks like this on Scribus:

                                                  PAGE 1
                            PAGE 2           PAGE 3
                            PAGE 4           .......

But on PDF it looks like this:

                            PAGE 1          PAGE 2
                            PAGE 3          PAGE 4
                            PAGE 5           .......

What am I doing wrong?
