Beginner Talk / Re: Importing images - low resolution?

hi mnawij

the attached palette is the indesign equivalent to 'manage images' in scribus, and there you'll find the effective resolution. (unfortunately still called 'dpi' instead of 'ppi'…)

I have to agree with a.l.e. on this one, unless the meta data can be read at the actual print resolution.  InDesign, Quark and even M$ Publisher displays the actual print resolution correctly for images.  I have attached the links palette from InDesign as a possible example.

Cheers!

well, it's exactly because of inexperienced users that i would like to remove the information:

they see 72 dpi and they panic...

of course, the width and the height + the preview are very important there...
but, in my eyes, the resolution does more harm than good... there.

I am not saying that I am working that way, but other people may.

We need to remember that often Scribus is used by inexperienced users, so why there may be better ways to do things, inexperienced users tend to not always do things the best way:)

I think it is important to try to help inexperienced users while at the same time not disturbing experienced users.

I know a lot of people who never bother with file names, instead they use preview to find the right file (no matter if it is a Word document or an image).

Personally I am picky with file names, but that is mainly because I am so used to using Total Commander as a file manager.

For example at work our quality department has made folders:
Internal audits
External audits
among dozens of other folders.

I would have named them:
Audits - external
Audits - internal

found this https://indesignsecrets.com/changing-layer-visibility-in-an-interactive-pdf.php
sounds like your looking for Interactive Layers, Click a box and a layer would pop up.
as to an external file and link would work to a new file, not sure it would show up in the same pdf

this doesn't sound possible with a .PDF file (Scribus or any other program) and might be better to ask Adobe if its possible, however, I could be wrong.

Text and Typography / Re: Solution requested for a typographical "problem".
« Last post by a.l.e on September 04, 2019, 03:26:31 pm »
there might be hacks for doing that but, basically, no, you cannot do it with scribus.

you need to create a text frame for each colored block of text.

in scribus the background colors for text are rather new and is not completely implemented.
i made a few tries and scribus seems to "paint" the font maximum ascent.

the question is: how can scribus do better?
if possible without needing a overly complex UI and with a straight forward implementation?

... adding the feature is scribus will anway a rather tedious work, since the work has been done for the display on screen and for each of the export foramts (pdf, ps/print, png, ...)

Text and Typography / Re: Asking for substitution for installed font
« Last post by JBelizzle on September 04, 2019, 03:22:22 pm »
The administrator install was the issue, thanks a.l.e!

It's odd to me that when the font is installed under my account Scribus recognizes it in the Preferences font list, but then is not able to access it for actual use.

Ik probeer het nog een keer. Maar nu in mijn eigen taal.

Ik wil graag dat de vette tekst in het midden van het kleurvlak komt te staan. Zoals in het voorbeeld rechts.
Ik kan het kleurfond op hoogte maken, maar kan de tekst binnen dat fond niet laten zakken.
Of
Het fond blijft staan. Er komt 'kleur onder bij 20% instelling.
Hoe krijg ik 'kleur' er boven bij?

Sorry, als grafisch ontwerper wil ik misschien teveel, maar wie weet is er een logische oplossing.

I will try again. But now in my own language.

I would like the bold text to appear in the middle of the color area. Like in the example on the right.
I can adjust the height of the color stock, but cannot lower the text within that stock.
Or
The fund remains standing. There is' color under at 20% setting.
How do I get 'color' above it?

Sorry, as a graphic designer I may want too much, but who knows there is a logical solution.
