Raster and Vector Graphics / Underexposed image regions are marked green
« Last post by matalb on May 11, 2018, 09:35:33 pm »
A photo with some dark regions loaded in an image frame gets apparently  colored green in that areas, viewed in Scribus. This is exported to PDF and also printed.

 The same photo with less contrast is not colored green.

The image is not really underexposed. How can I disable this behaviour?

User Interface / New user impressions
« Last post by valkana on May 11, 2018, 05:37:52 pm »
Hi,

I just started looking into Scribus and I want to give you some first impressions/ideas about the UI from a new user's perspective.

W7x64, 1.5.4.

My first problem was, that guides were behind objects. I looked through the options but did not understand that the "Placement" box for the guides is to set foreground/background - I had to search the forum to explain that to me. Maybe add a label above this box, to explain that the box is to set foreground -> background.

Next (minor) issue is incrementing and decrementing values like font size via clicking on the icon in front of the edit field and moving the mouse left/right (or up/down) to change the values like in 3DS Max or PS is not possible. Mousewheel works, which is nice.

I did not find an option to put the ruler into percentage mode. How can I do that? Why is it not possible to change the ruler units by right clicking it with a context menu (I saw this box at the bottom right to change units, but no percent).

Removing or editing guides is non-intuitive. They have no context menu, nor do they react on any ctrl/alt/shift+left/right click. You actually have to right-click somewhere else and then you can edit them - why no context menu when right-clicking them, or make them deleteable by ctrl/alt/shit+click.

Maybe make the "guide manager" accessible via the Insert menu too.

Since I cannot change the ruler to percentage, how can I add a guide at a certain percentage (without having to open the calculator)?

It says text properties can be opened with F3. Does not work, despite F2 for general properties does work.

Go to the Preferences and change the two font sizes for the UI/menus to 11pt then switch to german UI. You can see that the left colum with all the categories is quite a bit smaller than with the english US UI and you cannot read anything anymore without resizing the whole window.


Greetings and thank you for developing Scribus

FYI: in InDesign some preferences can be save specifically to a document when it is open and will not reset any global preferences that are set when all documents are closed... not sure if this is where the programming will be going on Scribus or not (shrug) just giving an idea as to why.

…Why would it be programmed to do this? Why can't we change the colours when a document is open?

i don't know.
i'm just a normal user, not a developer…

Spot on! It only works with no open document

Just for my own info: Why would it be programmed to do this? Why can't we change the colours when a document is open?

Many thanks

Scripts and Plugins / ScribusGenerator - 2-page spread with multiple records
« Last post by schk on May 10, 2018, 01:05:11 am »
Hi there, I'm trying to figure out how to create multiple records on a 2-page spread. I have two data fields on page 1 and want the next row in my .csv to be in the same data fields on page 2 of my document. Every time I generate the script it only shows on page 1 as the %VAR_next-record% doesn't seem to be working. Is there an updated value for this?

Thanks

General Discussion / Changing element colours (1.5.4)
« Last post by IDN101 on May 10, 2018, 12:24:41 am »
In 1.5.4 when I go to Preferences > Display,

The only colour I can change is the top one- for Page Fill. I can click on the bar and up comes the colour picker.

Every other element (eg Unlocked Frames, Locked Frames, etc)- clicking on the bar does nothing- ie it does not bring up the colour picker.

Anything I am doing wrong?

Many thanks

Of course you should choose for your projects the one or the other Scribus version.

You cannot go back and forth.

So they say
(that's why the stable 1.4.x is still recommended; you can't go back if anything fails with your 1.5.x file)
