The PDF file is just a big image and I can't select texts

Previous topic - Next topic


Hey guys.
When I export a text file from Scribus to PDF the pages are created as large images. I cannot use the "Find" tool on the created PDF, nor can I select texts to copy and paste. Am I doing something wrong when exporting?

yes, it looks alike...

the usual way would be:
  • 'file' → 'export' → 'save as .pdf'
  • in the 'fonts' tab of the export window you should see your fonts either in 'fonts to embed' or in 'fonts to subset'
  • after controlling all the settings press 'save' and scribus should create a readable file...
