Yeah, the text was only to demonstrate that it definitely underlined the selection.

I'll toy with it some more.

Layout Issues / Re: Insted moving object freely, it snaps to some strange 1pt grid
« Last post by a.l.e on October 10, 2019, 10:22:12 am »
i don't know what to say...

indeed, when you select pt as your unit, moving around an item with the mouse has a precision of 1 pt.

now, i wonder why nobody has noticed this before...
yep, you have guessed it:

- pt is not the most common unit for page layout.
- if you want to align thing, you align them; you don't move them around with the mouse.

you seem to be in europe, so you should probably use mm as your unit (except if in your country cm is common for page layout... but you should probably use mm anyway : - )

on the other side, if you want to align things:

- you can define guides and use them for both items.
  (in the current 1.5 code you can even get the guides to snap to the existing item)
- use "window > align and distribute" to "glue" one item to the other.
- (for those on 1.5 you can enable the snapping to items).
- or even set the exact position by typing it in the properties palette.

what you are experiencing is probably a bug, but i see it as a beneficial one:
when you hit it, you will learn about how to better work with scribus...

and, damned, that old scribus is so ugly...

well, no, not infinite... but yes, scribus should not snap if not snapping is enabled.

can you share a .sla where you see this happening?

you don't need any text in line where there will be the line.

- define a right aligned tab at 1 mm less than the frame width
- insert a tab "char" at the beginning of the line
- select the tab "char" and
  - make it underlined
  - set the color of the selection to whatever color you need
  - tweak the underline thickness (through a long click on the "underline" button)

if you cannot get it to work, you might want to ask somebody around you to help you sort this out...

General Discussion / Re: Keyboard arrow increment adjustable?
« Last post by utnik on October 10, 2019, 09:46:43 am »
hi inkuser

with the shift key the movement will be a tenth of the standard and with 'cmd' (on mac, might be 'ctrl' on other systems) it's ten times the standard value.

It appears that the keyboard arrow increment is tied to the document units.

If your units are points, pressing a keyboard arrow once will move an object 1 point in the direction of the arrow you press. Units in CM? One arrow press will move the item 1cm.

If you need to alter the keyboard arrow increment, you must change the units of the document, then back when you're finished doing your fine moves with the keyboard arrow.

Can the User set the amount of distance something will move by selecting the object and pressing an arrow key on the keyboard?

Right now on my set-up, that amount seems to be 1/2"   Be nice if I could set it to any value.

Thank you for any clues!

I'm experience the same issue.
Scribus 1.4.8, Windows 10

I can position precisely only with the numeric control palette but not freehand using the move tool.

I have all snapping turned off in my document, yet when I try to position items, they seem to be snapping to something.

Snap to Grid, Snap to Guides are both OFF.

Shouldn't I have near-infinite variability in my positioning of items?

Thank you
