Issue with printing - maybe wrong document settings?
« on: April 26, 2017, 10:30:41 am »
I have a strange behavior of my Scribus 1.4.6

When I print out my page, all text starting from a certain point is deleted. Its hard to explain, hence I attached some files.
This happens when I print on PDF24 Printer as well as on my HP Laserprinter.
However, I am able to use the Export-tab in order to get the full page and print that afterwards.

The big textbox is just for demonstrating, I normally have several small text boxes on the document, but the effect is the same.
It only impacts text though, no images or shapes.

Has anybody an explanation?

hi edecty

some suggestions:
  • don't print direct from scribus! – export a .pdf file instead. (in some configurations direct printing works, but not in all of them.)
  • few printers will print the full area to all edges – unless you have one of them, add margins.
  • don't use forced justified alignment – it hurts while looking at…
