But raster DPI is not the same as image PPI, is it?

Generally one image pixel is rasterized into several raster dots.

An at normal viewing distance I doubt you will see a difference between 1200 PPI and 4800 PPI. You would need a magnifying glass to be able to see any difference.

MacOS / Re: Document Won't Open 'Crashes due to signal #6'

can you create a new file, add a text frame, save the file, close it and reopen it?

if you can do that, probably, your scribus is fine.

if you cannot, you should try to reset the preferences. i can post further instructions for removing the preferences, if this is what you need.

I have been able to recover corrupted *.sla file using XMLCopyEditor.

http://xml-copy-editor.sourceforge.net/

Try validating the *.sla file (which is XML format).

If it cannot be validated then the internal XML code needs to be corrected.

[Later edit] If you search for "signal #6" you will find this thread which (although referring to Linux) identifies Qt libraries as cause.

Thanks for getting back to me. Unfortunately, I had to reproduce all of the work and never close the file as it seems once closed it cannot be re-opened.

The crash mentioned above definitely appears to be the same one I have. Apologies, I'm not the most technical of people. Please, could you be able to help me locate the equivalent fix for mac?

Thank you!

Beginner Talk / Re: Barcode generation in Scripter
« Last post by a.l.e on April 01, 2019, 07:38:29 pm »
ciao paolo

it would not be that hard to add a command to the scripter API for it. but, in this case, i'm not sure it's the right thing do (it would be putting a dependency of a plugin to a different and unrelated plugin).

in this case, i guess it's pretty simple to find a python library that will generate some png or svg that you can then include in scribus.
the scribus code also uses an external library to convert your input into a rester image (i guess...)

please share your solution so that other people won't have to reinvent the wheel!

ciao

Beginner Talk / Barcode generation in Scripter
« Last post by paolobb4 on April 01, 2019, 06:54:43 pm »
Good day people   :)
I'm new to scribus and I'm working on some pdf generation with scripting. I was wondering if there's a way to call the standard Scribus barcode generation tool from script, and more generaly how to call any standard Scribus tool.

I have no idea of how or where does scribus define it's tools but there must be some code somewhere and I really, really hope it is also callable from Scripter  ;D

(I did see there's an example for a script that generates code39 barcodes but I'm hoping not to have to reinvent the wheel just to render the code128 barcodes that I need)

Cheers everyone.

Thanks a.l.e.,

My vendors newest RIP can rasterized to 6000 dpi, might as well take advantage :-) especially in black/white bitmap scans.

Cheers!

nice!

now, i'm really tempted to convert this in a script that is really able to parse  "any" code... but i fear that it would be a huge thing...

this having been said: what kind of document needs 4800 dpi?

... just curious...

... for the current document, you have to change the "file > document settings"...

"file > preferences" is for all future documents (except for settings that do not depend on the document).

it might be just this...

Raster and Vector Graphics / import image max resolution
« Last post by mnawij on April 01, 2019, 02:39:46 am »
Is there a maximum resolution for imported images? I keep getting an exclamation point whenever I am importing a 3200 dpi bitmap image.  I understand that it is part of the preflight checking, but when I edit the max image resolution in the preferences->preflight to 4800 dpi, I am still getting the red exclamation point.  Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks!
