MacOS / Re: Scribus freezes
« Last post by a.l.e on July 08, 2019, 03:58:37 pm »
somehow i fear that scribus is crashing because of a bad font or color profile.

can you try to install the development version and see if it also crashes?

MacOS / Scribus freezes
« Last post by Flatinus on July 08, 2019, 09:16:37 am »
Hi, welcome to everyone and excuse my bad English right now.
I've been in the DTP world since the Amiga days (Pagestream), then QuarkXpress and finally InDesign. Unfortunately, since the end of March I have changed offices and I no longer have the Adobe package available and to have greater compatibility between systems I installed Gimp, Inkscape and Scribus both on Windows7 in the office and on the Mac at home.
I thought I could find applications hard to use and obtuse and instead I discovered professional and intuitive applications.
On Friday I created a brochure in the office and since we had to deliver it this morning, I thought of completing the work at home, but since Saturday Scribus freezes.
Start, the splash screen appears, but stops during "Reading color profiles" (I hope the translation is correct) as you can see from the attached image, and it stays that way until I have to force the exit.
I uninstalled it, deleted any Scribus referent file in the system, reinstalled, but the problem arises every time during that loading phase.
I created a new user and again the same problem.

Does anyone know how I can solve it please?

Mac Mini late 2012, i7, 16 GB, SSD, Mojave 10.14.5 / Scribus 1.4.8
Thanks.

Raster and Vector Graphics / Re: Can't paste from LibreOffice to vector anymore
« Last post by a.l.e on July 07, 2019, 10:59:02 am »
works here on debian with a somehow current build from master (and LO  6.1.5.2) in "plain" X11 environment...

from what i've sen by doing support for scribus, it seems that drag and drop and copy paste work or not depending on the environment around scribus...

but i have never seen somebody being able to fix (in a reproducible way)  a failure of this type...

but you could try an older version of LO, if the issue comes from there...

Raster and Vector Graphics / Can't paste from LibreOffice to vector anymore
« Last post by alanr1138 on July 06, 2019, 11:48:42 pm »
For the last several years I've been doing this to get tabular data into Scribus: Format data in LibreOffice Calc, highlight the table, Ctrl-C, click into Scribus, Ctrl-V, and drag the scalable object of the table where I want it. Now I'm not getting anything when I paste. If I paste into a text box, I get the unformatted text only.

Edit to add: running it from a command line doesn't show any errors or messages when pasting, either.

This not working has really messed up the efficiency of my workflow. What did I break? Is it a change in Scribus, LibreOffice, KDE, ????

Thanks for any insights!


Scribus Version 1.5.5.svn (Portage ebuild)
27 December 2018
Build ID: C--T-F-C1.16.0-64bit
Using Ghostscript version 9.26
LibreOffice 6.2.4.2.0+ (Both Portage ebuild and precompiled binary)
Gentoo Linux (current)
KDE 5.57.0
QT 5.12.3

Also tested not working (but only after my regular Linux setup stopped working, so not sure if it ever did):
Scribus 1.5.4
LibreOffice 6.2.4 and 6.1.?
Windows 10

what kind of user fields are not imported?
In French they are called : Variables/Champs utilisateur
The translation should be : Variables/User Field

can you upload an .odt with such fields, so that we can test them?

The file is right there... I had to replace the ODT extension by a ZIP one. Switch back to ODT.

Best regards

Hi all,

I imported a ODT file created with LibreOffice 6.4.2.4. The user fields didn't import... Is there a trick allowing me to import them along with the rest of the text?

Thanks

Linux / Re: Fedora 30 missing Scribus template previews
« Last post by rolandc on July 05, 2019, 08:34:57 pm »
works here on debian testing.

i guess that it's a fedora problem, and you might want to check if other people have reported a similar problem in their bug tracker.

this having being said, in scribus templates are really not that important... and if you're doing your first steps in scribus there are good chances that you don't need them (except if your main goal is to create visit cards...)

ciao

Thanks a.l.e for your reply. I agree with your point of view, although I was aiming at doing just that: starting to draw my own business card and I was just trying to get some ideas to start from. Not the end of the world, especially since I can still open the works of others (or what has been made freely available at least) for ideas too, so no big deal, as long as the program is stable and this seems to be a Fedora-related problem then.
