Hi, thanks for your reply. I have managed to get the first 4 pages imported fine, but a file of pages 5 and 6 just brings in page 6, pictures only and none of the text from either page (tried twice)
Also tried it with another page but ti does the same

Thank you for you reply. However, I was referring to the styles I have made in Scribus. So, what I was/am doing often is copying a part of a text in Word (.doc not .docx). Then sometimes all sections are labelled "standaard" text (made by me as a style) and I only have to adjust the styles for headings and footnotes, italics. But other times all sections are labelled "no style" and then I have to change each and every section to "standaard style". Untill now I didn't discover what the difference is between the two outcomes.

I found out today. I had to copy all the footnotes on the last page. The footnotes have an own style. So, when I past only the last footnote and I assign it the correct style, then I copied all the other footnotes above it and all of them had the "footnote" style. This saves much work.

page > import > select > open is indeed the right way to do it...

the question is what is in the .sla file you tried to import...

but you have to say which pages you want to import... if you have 10 pages you will write 1-10
and you probably have to ask scribus to create the needed pages...

i've tested here with a demo document and it worked...

Hi, I create a small charity mag of 40 pages. The first time I made one I did the whole thing as one .sla file but there were problems with making mistakes and load times of the files. So this time I did it as lots of smaller .sla files (1-4 pages long)
I tried to merge them all with File, New, Page, Import, From document, Select, Open .sla file.
When I tried this it comes up with the error "Found nothing to import"
Any help much appreciated.
I am running on PCLinuxOS x64 KDE
Scribus Version 1.4.7
28 April 2018
Build ID: C-C-T-F-C1.15.12-64bit
Using Ghostscript version 9.22

Maybe the printer does not have a PDF viewer that supports true bleed, but expects the bleed to be inside the trim box?

(It seems very strange though, in that case it must not be a very professional printer.)

... well, jack, ...  is see the crop marks in there...

have you tried to send the screenshot to the printer (with a new pdf where you know the crop marks are there... maybe you have sent the wrong pdf... things happen...)?

yes, I did. When it's exported and opened in adobe acrobat, this is what it looks like (just one of the pages) in case maybe there's another issue I may have done wrong?

from the screenshot you seem to have correctly defined the bleeds.

when exporting the pdf, did you check the "Bleed Marks" checkbox in the Pre-Press tab?

if you have a word document, you should load it with "file > import > get text".

i'm not sure whether docx files can directly be imported with the formatting, but if you convert them to odf files (the libreoffice / openoffice format for writer files) it must work.

1.5.x will probably handle your files better better than 1.4...

scribus currently does not keep the formatting when copy pasting. it would of course be possible to do add such a feature, but it's not as easy as it sounds, since scribus is a multiplatform program and each platform (windows, mac os x, different types of linux, ...) have their way to put the formatting in the clipboard.
it's not a necessary feature for scribus, but i agree that it would be a handy one: if somebody wants to contribute code to scribus, this could be a useful project to go for : - )

Hi, so basically I'm doing a children's book for a client. My client's printer said there's no bleed marks, but I have them set up in the document settings. However, my images seem to overlap (?) the marks. What am I doing wrong or misunderstanding? I am using version 1.4.7. on windows. I've attached some screenshots.
