Quote from: AdmFubar on February 08, 2024, 05:41:56 AMLooked over the the site.. didnt get the file, as i'm not thrilled about signing up..however; i'm wondering about the watermarking the document has. This might be the issue. As the water marking can enforce drm and that might be why it isnt getting opened by scribus. Have you tried opening in pdf reader? and what are the results?
Quote from: a.l.e on February 08, 2024, 08:23:18 AMscribus currently does not support importing full layouts from libreoffice.going through pdf is a creative way to get a layout into scribus, but you will lose most of the formatting information (direct formatting might be kept but styles and other "meta" information cannot survive the conversion to pdf)the idea behind a workflow using libreoffice and scribus together (and generally using word processing and layout tools in combination), is to prepare the text in writer and then import it into text frames.now, if you want to try things out, -- and only use scribus to prepare for print -- you can for sure try to go through PDFs. but i would try it first on a few pages... then you won't need to wait for long hours.and remember that scribus document should not be much longer than 100 pages. (how many page you can manage depends on the resource available on your computer)
Quote from: nijineko on February 10, 2024, 07:54:16 PMI can try the base odt files in Scribus... however it has been laid out such in the odt files to prevent paragraphs and tables from being split across pages, so there are a lot of inserted page breaks - might be problematic.

Not to be picky, but adding manual page breaks is usually not the best way to handle things like like that. But maybe Libreoffice does not have all the necessary functions.In MS Word there is at least a paragraph property to not split a paragraph over a page break, there is a paragraph property to "keep with next" (so if you use that on a few paragraphs, they will all end up on the same page as the paragraph after them).I almost never add a manual page break in MS Word, because there is even a "page break before" option for paragraphs. A manually inserted page break essentially becomes a character and can cause a lot of issues when you try to move things around.
