User Interface / Re: Better interaction with layers
« Last post by a.l.e on September 03, 2019, 09:09:18 pm »
well, scribus does have a list of the layers in the status bar (at the bottom of the window) and you can use it to switch layers...

my post made me think, I have so much screen real-estate that I could have all the property tabs open, so I'll be testing this and layers again

at one point I thought layers would be great and keep me from accidentally moving items I was done with, what I found was that it was inconvenient to switch back and forth so an easy way to do this would be great maybe something similar to changing pages found at the bottom of the Scribus screen.


I came from Pagestream on Amiga where you could load the tools you wanted at the top of the screen and save layouts with different names so you could load the best for your project, always having to click a new tab to get to a tool (which is not a real big deal) is my only complaint about Scribus

Code / Automated test for Scribus?
« Last post by a.l.e on September 03, 2019, 06:16:22 pm »
I'm working on a feature for Scribus that might use some automated tests and I wonder how I could add some.

Currently, I think about looking at:

- xdotool
- Xnee
- Qt Test (https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qttestlib-tutorial3-example.html)

Does anybody have any experience in this field?

Text and Typography / Re: Solution requested for a typographical "problem".

This is how I have now solved it, but that is a rather cumbersome process.

It is just in a test-fase...

hi rodney

well, the question was for people who use layers often or have good ideas on how to improve them : - )

when you don't use them much (or do not have high expectations) the current implementation is for sure ok!

I like the Layers as is, I just don't really use them much

It's not possible anymore to select items from a hidden layer:

https://gitlab.com/scribus/scribus/commit/a35ae97e05105bc411642c44ea390124ac207dd4

i still think that the better solution is to make it impossible to activate a hidden layer...

... well, if you want to set the baseline, have a look in the eigenschappen : - )
the baseline is a paragraph attribute (whatever you mean by baseline exactly), not a character one.

but i must admit that i have a hard time understanding your issue, since you don't describe what where scribus fails to meet your requirements.

from the screenshots i would say

- that you're using scribus 1.5.x and
- in the paragraph style, you should set the "margin above" to keep the text on the right vertical position.

since you cannot set the "first line offset" in a style, you might also want to add a typical title frame in the scrapbook...

does it help?

p.s.: it would be wonderful if you could share the final result so (if possible with a description of the project... we love to show people how scribus is used in the real world : - )
