Quote from: richardgriffin on September 10, 2022, 07:56:48 PMUnfortunately, your second screenshot shows exactly what my problem is — the option to embed PDF files is greyed out. I agree, it is tick-able in the Preferences > PDF Export > File Options menu as shown in your first screenshot, but it *is* greyed out in the Save as PDF dialog.
QuoteAlso, I am specifically dropping the PDF files into Image Frames (which is how this all used to work, but now seems not to), because I don't want all the text to be turned into shapes (and so be un-searchable) and to possibly lose the raster elements too.
QuoteIt sounds as if I'm asking for a lot, but in fact all I'm asking for is the functionality that we already had working just fine in Scribus 1.5.5, which I don't understand why it has since stopped working (for me?).

QuoteAn image frame is for — tataaahh — images as the name implies.
QuoteJust drag and drop your PDF onto the page and everything is fine.
Quote from: toyotadesigner on September 11, 2022, 12:15:17 AMIf you don't want to print your »carefully crafted PDF input file«, just don't import it. Simple as that.Option: Rebuild your super-duper input form in Scribus, it shouldn't be too hard.
QuoteRead the label carefully: It says EXPERIMENTAL, which means the developers are still working on the feature.

Quotebut, if you want to have vector graphics in your pdf output you have to ways you can experiment with:- import the PDFs as vectors instead of loading them into image frames- import SVGs as vectors instead of using PDFs.
