There are many ways you could tag the pages, just placing an empty frame with a specially formatted name for example.

But there's also "Attributes" you can apply to objects. Maybe those are easier to identify in a Script.

I don't have much experience in Scribus scripts though.

I am trying to help you help yourself, I don't get paid enough to sit here to give you a complete finished solution.

Thank you very much. I do not ask for support. I just ask for share experience or information. If you have no more you canĀ“t share. This is ok - of course.

I assumed you meand that you put something (which I referred to as a "tag") on those pages to identify them.

Now it is just tagged in my mind. I need to find a way to tag this pages for automation. I will find a way.

Thank you a lot.
Have nice time

Ok, then I misunderstood your initial post.

I have no idea, I just googled for a command lina utility for PDF and then modified an example. I am trying to help you help yourself, I don't get paid enough to sit here to give you a complete finished solution.

And what does pages tagged mean? I found nothing about tagging pages. Any hint/link?

I was referring to what you wrote about pages with "special content". I assumed you meand that you put something (which I referred to as a "tag") on those pages to identify them.

It is not a one time job. This is a workflow to create courseware.
Courseware development is like software development. I need several releases with qualitygates until the courseware is ready to use. And after this there are more releases after content or syllabus change. Last but not least some times this courseware development is teamwork - done by different editors.

Because i identified quality problems like different versions of manuals used in one produktion system i lkke to eliminate manual work which causes the different versions.
Last but not least i like to do this for my course. But it will be extended for at least one other course and if it works it wil be used by editors for more than 6 additional courses.

maybe a Scribus script can give you the page numbers of pages tagged in a certain way

Where can i look for Scribus scripts? And what does pages tagged mean? I found nothing about tagging pages. Any hint/link?

Features / Re: Import XCF (GIMP native format)

I see the closing parenthesis was cut off from the link. The correct link should be:

https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/File_formats_that_should_be_supported_by_Scribus_(wish_list)

And according to that page the support for xcf was completed during the 2008 Google Code Summer of Code.

But I am not sure if it was ever implemented in Scribus, it seems my 1.5.2 does not indicate xcf as a Get image file format.

But the page also mentions the GIMP developers have advised against using xcf as an intermediate format because it relies on GIMP internals. (Which is what I initially suspected.)

According to this page Scribus should already support XCF, but I am not sure what has happened since 2008.

If it is just a one time job, why need to automate it?

I'd just export to PDF, make notes of what pages I wanted to keep (or remove) and then use some command line tool like:
pdftk full_file.pdf cat 2-4 6 8 10 12-end output stripped_file.pdf

The time needed to automate it would likely exceed the time needed to do the above a few times. I mean, you would only need to do it maybe 3-4 times. A first time to test how it works, one or two times for proof reading and then for the final version.

But if you can find a tool identifying the page numbers (maybe a Scribus script can give you the page numbers of pages tagged in a certain way) you could probably automate it. But it would take several runs to validate, and you would likely still need to proof the result several times before you can trust it.
