text not appearing in pdf
« on: April 26, 2019, 03:48:27 pm »
I created a very simple doc for a web sidebar ad. It's just two images and some text. When I export to pdf, the text doesn't appear. I've made sure the properties of the text frames and the layer are set to export. I clicked "embed fonts" on the export panel. What am I missing? I've been scouring the forums for solutions to this problem all day.

Attached the file here for you to take a look.

hi iskhanna

on my system (scribus 1.4.8 on macOS 10.14.4) the text of your file exports to the .pdf without any problem.
