Scribus won't generate a PDF
« on: August 13, 2019, 11:42:07 pm »
I'm getting the message "Warning cant write the file" when I hit the Save button.

I have been working on this project for some time and as I add pages to the book I periodically write a new PDF to review my has been working until now

I have tried saving the .sla file, closing , re-opening etc .....nothing working

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, Jim

Most likely explanation: You are not saving in the folder you think you are saving.

Tro to navigate to the correct folder from the root before clicking the Save button.
