no, sorry, if it does not show up, it did not get through...

at least, if you have put "polygon" in the title, i cannot see it in the list of tickets...

can you please retry?

I have reported the issue in the bug tracker.
It didn't show up in the list of issues ... but that is maybe because it must be accepted first.

I uninstalled/reinstalled scribus-1.4.8-windows-x64 (killing the subdirectories in \Program Files and \AppData\Roaming) and still had the "non copiable text in PDF" problem. I then upped the ante by installing the development candidate Scribus 1.5.4

And the result is...

Problem solved. I can export a PDF and copy the text with a PDF reader.

Thank you utnik

Yeah I tried embed/outline, but that doesn't change a thing.

I'm using Scribus Version 1.4.8 on a Windows 10 PC. I don't think that it's a a license problem as the same fonts work when I print to a PDF with Word.

I reckon it's something I've done with the parameters. I'm going to uninstall and start afresh (not before capturing as many menus that seem relevant). I was able to export a copiable PDF when I first started using Scribus, so there's something under the hood that I've "tweaked".

A suivre...

Text and Typography / Re: Document fonts are converted to bitmap in PDF export
« Last post by utnik on June 04, 2019, 02:11:45 pm »
…Is there something in the export parameters that affects how fonts are handled?
well – you can select to 'embed' or 'outline' the fonts. but what is called 'outline' generates a type 3 font and stays as selectable text.
are you working under windows? – in this case it might be a problem with the font licence. could you try to use a third party (non microsoft) font?
i have to work now. but could provide an .sla test file in the evening, if it will still be needed by then…

How about if you share a simple SLA file with me, to see if I can export it with "copiable" text...

I can select text in your PDF, but not in my own. Is there something in the export parameters that affects how fonts are handled?

i just exported your file without changing anything, and got selectable text in the .pdf file – don't know what went wrong with your export…

No problem to share. An SLA is attached.

I just created a simple text SLA with the text of this post. Exported as PDF, it presents the same symptoms.
