Scripts and Plugins / How to activate plugins and
« Last post by nanni on February 02, 2020, 08:33:42 pm »
I have Scribus 1.5.5 installed on my Fedora 31 laptop. I would like to see how Scribus deals with importing text from an .idml file and from VivaDesigner's .xml file. I see that both relevant plugins are installed on my machine: and --- but I have trouble finding out how to actually activate these two plugins.

How do I open/import an idml and an xml file? Trying to do it the usual way results in a crash due to signal 11 (when trying to open an IDML) or a blank import with no text (when trying to open Viva's XML).

What am I doing wrong?

Is it possible to write a book in segments (i.e. separate files) then stitch them together once finished. Scribus isn't coping with 56 pages and a lot of images (average 3 per page). It always crashes when I click on 'preview mode' Black boxes appear and really doesnt behave itself.

macOS Catalina Version 10.15.3 (19D76)
Scribus 1.5.5

The text in the fields and buttons is pretty small and not centered.

In addition, some fields overlap:

How can I get rid of the ridiculous warning when I have enabled color management and switch to ┬╗Preview Mode┬ź?

Is Scribus15xNightly_Mojave-20191208-r23404.dmg less stable than the 15.5 version?

Thanks for the explanation. Any idea why the ICC profile would change - I haven't done anything. Currently they're set to RGB: 20F9CT01WW and CMYK: Chemical proof.

Edit: Sorry, answered my own question - previous docs did not have color management turned on!

The warning triangle indicates that the corresponding color cannot be reproduced exactly in the colorspace described by selected printer ICC profile. Printer profile can be selected in File > Preferences > Color Management for future documents or File > Document Setup > Color Management for current documents.
General Discussion / my .sla file takes forever to load

hi forum,
i'm relatively new to  scribus an i am using for a portfolio design.
i have used the option that collects ll the images into the .sla (don't recall how its called exactly) and I am trying to open the file and continue working on it but it takes forever to load/ open.

the file is abut 50 pages and includes lots of images, few text.

Should I be patient or is there a problem with the file?

(as I write this I am past 20 minutes waiting to load!!!!)

any suggestions?

Hi everyone
My scribus 1.5.5 running on Linux mint tricia cinnamon cannot open files located on my nas. In fact, when I open the program's file finder, the network drives do not appear.
I can open an existing document through the file manager, but the images included in it cannot be displayed.

I would appreciate some solution.

Excuse me my English I'm using a translator
Beginner Talk / Color warning triangle
« Last post by satterle on January 31, 2020, 03:42:45 am »
I created a master page with my own set of RGB colors. I then created a separate file with the stock Scribus colors because sometimes I just need my small palette. If I want more, I do an Edit/Colors/Import.

It's being working well for the past couple of years, but now I get red and yellow warning triangles next to some of both my colors and the Scribus stock colors. What am I being warned about???

For instance, I have a red that's 219 0 0 that has the warning. If I go into the color widget and edit and select "is a spot color", the widget flips form RGB to CMYK color model and gets rid of the triangle. If I switch back to RGB, the color definition is now 219 14 15. If I change the definition back to 219 0 0, the triangle pops up again. The Scribus colors that exhibit this behavior include Maroon, Napier green, and Orange-red.

Scribus 1.4.6 on Mint Linux.
