Add text/append text in Scribus 1.5.5 and 1.5.6.1
« on: January 16, 2021, 01:46:24 pm »
Hello,

As a long-time user, it had always been easy to get text/append text and layout the .odt & and .docX  files in Scribus Versions 1.4.6 and 1.4.8.


But now it is harder in versions 1.5.5 and 1.5.6.1. Whenever you try to get text/append text on 32x Scribus 1.5.5 and 1.5.6.1 on a Windows Seven laptop, you always get this popup dialogue: “Scribus crashes due to the following exception: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION.”



Could this be a bug?

What seems to work is to open the same original files in Libre Office or Microsoft Word and copy/paste them in Scribus 1.5x. But with the original layouts of the .odt and .docx files gone in Scribus.

Many other dizzying selections pops-out, however,  in Secribus 1.5.5 or 1.5.6.1

But you will never guess which ones to select .

If you need  to keep the original layouts of the .odt and .docx files and get them through the get text/append text menu in Scribus 1.5.5 or 1.5.6.1. Could there be some instructions/tutorials on this?

Need some help, comments, and replies.
