Beginner Talk / Re: Export save as PDF

I'd be happy to test your file I use 1.5.5 (linux) does 1.4.8 use preflight, if so does it show errors?

Hi Rodney,

Well, it does actually work (the export to PDF function, that is), but only if I cut 80 % of the text that I've put on one of the layers...

Then it works a charm.

I don't undertand why this is, seeing that even if I have a lot of text (50 000 words, as point 5--I'm making a typographical poster of a book), surely this should not be more difficult to handle than a bunch of complex designs and pictures? (of which I have none--as there is only text, and a few objects).

Do you have any idea how I could find a solution to this (I would prefer not, to buy a new computer right now!).

Thanks.

Hi Rodney Lee,

Do you think the problem would be resolved by using Scribus 5 ?

I have tried using both the export function and a pdf driver (both to no avail).

I do manage to save an A4 'piece' of my A1 file to pdf (I think it just centers on the A1 and prints an A4 'keyhole' view.

I have tried to use a pdf driver with an A1 option, but it just grinds to a halt.

sounds like your trying to use a .pdf print driver and not Scribus pdf export, have you tried Scribus 1.5.5?, I have never actually used 1.4.8

I should perhaps add the following info:

I'm using Windows 10
Computer has 4 GB RAM
There are different scripts of font on the document (Noto Ethiopic and Calibri regular)

Hi,

I hope I'm not posting in the wrong place (perhaps I should be starting a new topic?), but I have an issue which seems related to this one.

I have a one page sla that I wish to save as PDF, in order to give the file to the printer.

It's a poster, in A1 paper format. I'm using Scribus 1.4.8.

Everytime I try to either export as PDF, or save as PDF, the system freezes, and nothing happens (a box comes up saying : printing, not responding).

On the other hand, if I print or export an A4 pdf, then it works... (I can a A4 'piece' of my A1 poster).

It the issue that my computer cannot handle the size generated by an A1 pdf? (on the poster, I have 3 layers, only text and some objects, and no pictures).

When I do a print preview, it works just fine. Export as image also works.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you~

Yes, it is a flash. I can play it with flash player now.

But, the TOC style was not mentioned in the movie.

How to make a TOC style to format the alignment and dotted line?

Or, there will be a TOC style later?(http://forums.scribus.net/index.php/topic,3345.msg15662.html#msg15662)

It's a flash movie, if you do not have flash installed it will not work.

My browser asked for permission to run Adobe Flash, and then it took maybe 10-15 seconds before the movie started.

But the movie did not seem to show how to edit the styles (I didn't watch all of it though).

I had click the movie link before, but the link jumped to :

There is nothing on the screen, it's a blank page.

Scripts and Plugins / Get layer objects, or get objects layer?
« Last post by Gibbz on February 07, 2020, 01:19:06 am »
Im working on a script that uses layers. But I cant find any way to get a layers objects, or any object properties which shows which layer the object is on.

Is there any way to do either of these?
