Post by: m s narayanan on April 24, 2017, 07:25:21 pm
Dear all
I have insert image frame of same size in about 60 pages and get images at one go.

Try it in a Master Page. But, I've found that in 1.5.5 on my Mac 10.15.2, that i can only have two or three different Master Pages.

hi m s narayanan

Dear all

i never inset a whole lot of images in a go – no help from me on this. but i sometimes need a bunch of similar image frames on different pages. here scribus offers different tools:

Try it in a Master Page.

master pages won't work for this, as the content of a master page is not editable on the actual document page. (there would be the same image on every page when the same master page is used…)

this is strange. i've never seen something like that – and a short test on macOS 10.14.6 with scribus 1.5.5 and 1.5.6.svn doesn't show such a restriction…

the "easy" way is to create a python script that insert the images on each frame...

but you need to know a bit of python or find somebody that writes the script for you.

on the other side, writing a script is more fun but for 60 pages there is probably a faster but more tedious way:

- in "file > import > images" select all images in the "right order" (or 10 by 10... it might be easier)
- and then click on each empty image frame (or the next 10).

try it first on a sample document with only few sample images...
