Thanks. I ended up using Scribus and then cropped the images using GIMP.

I think you would be better off using Inkscape instead of Scribus for such a task. Inkscape can export into a bitmap format of your choice.

I have a snip/picture of my "cad" software that I using in my help files. I want to add text and draw arrow on the picture. The text has to be formatted in a certain way, text color, white background text frame edge has to be a certain color. Using GIMP for this was too ideal and I was recommend trying to use desktop publishing software to fix the problem. Here I am using scribus and adding text and drawing shape is much nicer but I want to export as a jpeg just the image itself. I don't care about the page layout at all the pictures will be used in an html help page.
My question is how to resize/clip the page to the image frame. I don't want to have the image or text resized.

PDF Generation / Re: Urgent : Perte de couleur à l'export en PDF

hi meloe56

i suppose, your colors are partly outside of the range of your printing profile.
the printing color space (cmyk) is much smaller than the rgb space your screen can display.
lots of vivid green tones can't be printed with the standard process colors.

PDF Generation / Urgent : Perte de couleur à l'export en PDF
« Last post by Meloe56 on December 06, 2021, 07:29:57 pm »

Je travaille sur scribus depuis un moment sans être pro.
Sur ma nouvelle maquette, les couleurs sont vives mais sur l'export PDF, les couleurs sont ternes ! Le vert fluo devient kaki !
J'ai bien activé le profil colorimétrique.
J'ai aussi retenté à partir d'un nouveau document mais c'est toujours la même dégradation des couleurs.
Je dois rendre la maquette demain à l'imprimeur !

Merci d'avance de votre aide !

I used to use only to use the stable version, but I went up to 1.5.3 to see if a new version would fix the problem, it did for a bit, then things slowed down again.
Scripts and Plugins / Calendar Generation Tool
« Last post by bastianilso on December 06, 2021, 02:23:37 pm »
Hi everyone,

I saw rafferty's nice scripts/GUI application for generating calendars, and thought maybe I can make something which generalizes into all kinds of calendar designs or layouts. Personally, I am working on a bullet journal for 2022, and have to generate 12 months with date lists for each day + a year calendar at the beginning - ideally, I want to just auto-generate the bullet journal for 2023 next year without changing the layout. :-)

The scripts searches for any "text templates" inside a given selection such as "$w1" which you can think of a bit like a special character for page numbering (see page below). The scripts identify them and replace them with the real text, decided by what month or year you chose. This should make it them quiet flexible for a lot of use cases. The repository includes some Scribus objects which I used to built the bullet journal, and can be used as a starting point for your own layouts.

I made this to save myself time, but I hope it might be of some value to the scribus community too. It doesn't cover all cases yet but pull requests are welcome, if you come up with handy adaptions or find bugs.

Beginner Talk / Re: Duplicate a group of pages??

Hi everyone,

Found this on web search, ran into the same issue (I was working on a year calendar and had to duplicate 5 pages corresponding to one month). Just wanted to say I made a script to perform this action:

I hope this helps anyone searching for something like this in the future.
Text and Typography / Re: setText Changes Alignment
« Last post by bastianilso on December 05, 2021, 04:40:12 pm »
I experienced the same as MattMiller - i figured its because setText first removes all text and therefore all settings applied to the previous text before it inserts the new text - this behaviour can be simulated in scribus editor too. To work around the problem, I implemented my own "replaceText()" function, which inserts the new text, before it deletes the old text. Essentially it creates the same result as setText, except it "remembers" the settings from the previous text in the text frame.

Code: [Select]
def replaceText(text, item):
    txtwidth = getTextLength(item[0])
    insertText(text, txtwidth, item[0])
    selectText(0,txtwidth, item[0])

I hope this can help someone who search for this issue in the future.
MacOS / Re:

xcode on macOS Big Sur had problems. Developers had to install a new version, but users couldn't get it unless they registered as developers. As far as I remember, Apple dropped xcode for Big Sur until the next macOS release.
