Manual Page Positioning With XML
« on: December 13, 2022, 03:37:41 pm »

I am using Scribus 1.4.8, and I am having a problem. I am writing a PHP program to auto-generate the SLA XML file for a Scribus document. I am trying to put a page at PAGEXPOS = 100, PAGEYPOS = 1572. My XML looks correct, but the page doesn't show up at that position. It shows up in a position closer to PAGEXPOS = 810, PAGEYPOS = 20. I have no idea why I can't get the page to settle into to my desired position. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Also, is there a way through the UI to see/modify the PAGEXPOS AND PAGEYPOS values? I can't find those values anywhere in the preferences.
