Using Chinese fonts

Previous topic - Next topic


I have recently downloaded Scribus to make a document with Chinese characters. A few Chinese fonts show up as available in the Scribus library but I am having difficulty using them. Here's what has happened:

1. With the text box active, if I import a file with Chinese fonts, e.g. Simsun, Kai Ti Regular, Deng Xian, the resulting output is a collection of pink-bordered blank boxes.

2. From an active text box I can select text editing and this opens a separate panel in which I can successfully type Chinese characters, e.g. using the Simsun font, but in the active text box the text appears as pink-bordered blank boxes.
