Beginner Talk / how to hide unwanted borders and markup in PDF file?
« Last post by tsasaobao on June 25, 2020, 07:45:38 pm »
Hello,

I'm trying to get a clean PDF for my resume that I can email to other people, but it always includes some sort of border or markup. In this example, It is showing yellow border in the page, and I'm not sure how to get rid of it. Any help appreciated. Thanks

while testing your issue, i noticed that the ctrl key does not cycle through the item in  the group.

i've written a ticket and jean fixed it last night : - )

even more comfort in the future (as soon as you switch to 1.5.6)

How do I delete my swatch and start again?  The delete button is greyed out.

hi ged

selecting and/or creating color sets without an open document will set the standard for future documents. it doesn't change the colors of files you produced earlier. (the active color set is a part of the .sla file.) if you need those colors in an older file, you have to select your color set (if you saved the greated colors as a set) or to import them from another .sla file (produced after the creaton of your standard colors).

Layout Issues / Re: text overflowing big enough (custom shape) frame
« Last post by utnik on June 24, 2020, 07:48:40 pm »
hi berteh

looks like a bug with bottom aligned text in non rectangular frames. (might not have been tested before…)
if you set a text distance from the bottom, the entire text is shown. (in my test 1 mm was sufficient, but it may be different for you, as i don't have your fonts.)

could you file a bug report, please!

utnik

edit: i didn't see ale's post, but there seems to be a problem worth looking at. (maybe not for your file, but to prevent problems in future cases…)

there is a PPA for the trunk...

you can keep both 1.5.5 and the trunk in parallel (for the rare cases when the trunk introduces new bugs)

in the given case, i think that i would do a manual adjustment anyway (by adding the end of lines).

this having been said, i have opened your file with 1.5.6svn and -- after having replaced the fonts because some where missing on my system) i get what is probably the correct result.

so, there is hope to get the right thing with no or little tweaking...

Thanks a.l.e,
The ALT > SUPER setting in XFCE did the trick, I can now navigate groups without resorting to outline window most of the time.
Very useful, thanks.

Layout Issues / text overflowing big enough (custom shape) frame
« Last post by berteh on June 24, 2020, 07:24:07 pm »
Hello.

I would like my text to be all visible within a (big enough) pentagon. But last pieces of it go into overflow instead (see screenshot, and given sla).

The pentagon is a Scribus Shape with 5 corners, rotated, then converted to text frame. The text paragraph is vertically aligned to the bottom, with plenty of space overhead to display the short painting title... but still it goes into overflow (depending on a combination of font size and/or bottom margin).

Is there a way to ensure this text goes "up" in the available frame space instead of overflowing ? I don't want to fix it manually looking at a working font size/margin combination... as I'd likely have more than a hundred such elements in final document.

The picture, if wanted, can be downloaded from https://openaccess-cdn.clevelandart.org/221.1922/221.1922_web.jpg, but it's not needed to test the attached SLA.

Layout Issues / Re: Is it possible to use text flow on text attached to paths?
« Last post by a.l.e on June 24, 2020, 07:19:16 pm »
i did not understand exactly what you want to achieve, but having linked text to path seems to be an "interesting" use case...

i have a hard time thinking a design where this would make sense... but i would be curious to see what you are trying to achieve...

anyway, no, i don't think that you can do it in scribus. (attaching to path is disabled if the text frame is in a chain)
