Ah good.  :)  Do I have to re-export my pdfs from Scribus, or can they have the metadata inserted as they are?

If single pages, then how do I print them two to a page ?

That's not a task for Scribus, but an impositioning software. Placing several pages on a sheet for printing is called impositioning.

For just plain booklet printing you can usually use any PDF viewer (it's usually a selection in the printing dialogue). For more complex impositions there are better tools.

Unfortunately few of these tools have any GUI helping you create the imposition.

your project is probably doable... but i have not seen the result you want to achieve...

some pointers:

- use multi duplicate
- if you layout two pages at a time or single pages, depend on how you will print the project (it will probably be easier to layout in the way you will see it on paper)
- guides might be helpful, try to avoid the grid (even if it looks like a good way of doing)

the best approach is probably to starting creating your document and share here the .sla and .pdf you will have and get feedback.

this having being said, a diary is not a typical work for scribus... but it's not that bad at it either...
but i'm not aware of any tool that is made for such a task : - )

happy learning!

hi ged

insert your metadata under 'file' → 'document setup' → 'document information'.

My PDFs created with Scribus dont have metadata details such as title, author, date created etc.  What do I have to do when exporting a PDF in order to enter these items?

For many years I've been using a diary from a particular manufacturer which I'm very happy with. Unfortunately, they're now being discontinued this summer which means I have to find another diary to suit my needs. 

Or, make my own using Scribus... The diary is an 18 month planner style with 48 pages, overall size of each page is 173mm high x 92mm wide. Each month is viewed across 2 pages. Can anyone give me a pointer as to how to set this up.  Do I use single pages or two fold pages ? If single pages, then how do I print them two to a page ?

I've got up to 7 months to learn how to use Scribus, but if anyone can help advise me on where to start  I would be very grateful.

Thanks

just a short important note: start using 1.5 for testing purposes only and only work on copies of your documents...

if you save a file with 1.5 you won't be able to open it with 1.4 anymore!

OK, just updatred to 1.5.4  I'll work with it tonight/tomorrow and see if th eproblem persists... fisrt I have re-familiarize myself as there are some differences between 1.4 and 1.5
