Can't select images to iport
« on: January 18, 2021, 05:06:25 am »
I'm experimenting with Scribus.
I'm using version 1.4.8 on Ubuntu 18.04

First I opened Scribus and it presents what looks like a blank canvas to begin creating on.

I googled how to import images.

Following the instructions I found, I went to 'File' > 'Import'

I hover over 'Get Image'... and nothing happens. The menu item doesn't become active.

I hit 'Ctrl-I'... and nothing happens.

What could be going on here?

hi bobdobbs

you can't load an image on the empty canvas. as a first step you need to create an image frame.
