Issues with importing from LibreOffice
« on: June 23, 2021, 11:27:52 am »
I'm having issues when importing text from Libreoffice. I set up the document with paragraph styles in LO, but wanted to use Scribus to get a better layout with pictures.

The main issue is that everything is in bold text when imported to Scribus (using Text frame, then Content -> Import). That's a major issue, and renders Scribus unusable for this project.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

(Ubuntu 20.04, Scribus 1.5.5+svn23928+dfsg-1build1)

hi audunmb

when i import text with 'content' → 'get text' or 'content' → 'append text' the text keeps its paragraph styles from libreOffice. (while direct formatting will be lost…)
as importer you select 'odt document' and don't check 'import text only'.
