Text and Typography / Re: Text Flow Around Frame
« Last post by sealegs on May 15, 2019, 10:29:26 pm »
Somewhat embarrassing as I was a computer tech and have been working with them since well before the personal computer!!  T Just had to select the " Use Frame Shape".  Just need to experiment a little more, plus the video is obviously outdated and was probably an older version of the software.
Thanks for you patience.

I've had a quick look at the video... here my comments:

- activating the grid is for most users a bad habit. don't do it. (hint: use guides and the guides manager instead)
- checking the "convert spot colors..." options in the pdf export settings is probably not a good idea.

there rest seems to be fine... i uses a really old version of scribus but one should be able to follow it with any version of scribus...

And what was the problem?

(i've asked about the tutorial, because it might be misleading... or it might be correct and we can tell you that following it step by step will help you solve your issue... or we might see where you have the issue... who knows?)

Not sure how that will help, but it is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3sEoYZGABQM

But it is me that cannot select the image box and have the text wrapped around it. The picture is attached

The most common issue is trying to change it for the wrong object.

You are supposed to change it for the image frame, not the text frame.

I am just beginning with Scribus and am currently stumped with one of the tutorials that I am watching.  I have inserted a text box then an image box and the video says to go to text properties in the "Windows; Properties" pull down.  When I go the the "Text Flow Around Frame" it has it "DISABLED"  How do I enable this option?

PDF Generation / Re: Grayscale export

hi sten

first the most essential part: every .pdf/x-1a file is a valid .pdf/x3 file (but not the other way round…)
  • the specifications for .pdf/x-3 allow mixed content (i.e. cmyk and rgb parts in the same file). that's the reason, why scribus won't convert any color while creating x-3 files.
  • in a .pdf/x-1a file all the content needs to be converted to the output profile. in this case scribus needs to care about the color conversion.
as your placed image is an 'rgb' file, there's no such thing as 'pure black'. (in the 'rgb' model 'black' means no color at all! – wich might be best represented in a rich black when converted to 'cmyk'…)
