No .pdf import in Scribus under MacOS Yosemite
« on: December 11, 2014, 01:26:09 pm »

after having installed MacOS Yosemite, Scribus (v. 1.4.4) is not able to import .pdf files anymore.
In the "Import Image" dialog window (cmd + i) the .pdf files are not shown in the preview as well.

I've tried to adjust the scribus settings but w/o success. Is it possible that there is a compatibility
problem between Yosemite and Scribus?

Thank you very much.

Maybe the update erased your GhostScript installation? I can imagine that you need GhostScript to import *.pdf files...
