No, it also occurs when the l is alone, like in "gmail" or "livre", and I also have an instance of two l's put together that turned out fine. I cannot discern any particular reason why some are thick and some are not, and believe me, I have solid pattern detection skills. Upon further inspection, I also have exactly three uppercase i in my file, and all are thick.
I am using Scribus version 1.4.8 on Windows, and the font used is Lato as previously mentioned, in Regular and Semibold style. Thanks for looking into it. If needed, I can send the file in question, though, well, it's my resume, and it's full of personal information, so I would rather not.

does the thicker version of the letter 'l' occur only when placed together? Also need to know the version of scribus, the font, and os.

Hi hi

If that problem came up already, I apologise, but I genuinely couldn't possibly tell what to look up for that...

So, I have recently made a document with Scribus, but after exporting it to PDF, somehow, most lowercase l characters (not all) turned out thicker, standing out like a sore thumb. One or two turned out as intended, and I have exactly one case of an uppercase i turning thick.
The font family I use is Lato, with issues arising with the Regular and Semibold members of the family.
Does anyone know how to fix that issue? I have attached an example, with the l's in "surveillance" being too thick, and the one in "accueil" being one of the rare instances that turned out correctly.

Layout Issues / changing the destination of a master page
« Last post by adrianstephens on February 06, 2023, 07:37:41 pm »
My preflight verifier tells me that a page's master page has a different destination.

I need to change the destination (left / right) of an existing master page.  But,  having spent a while searching through the documentation and trying all the windows/ menu items,  I can't see how to change it.   Yes,  I could create a new master page that was a copy, and then apply it,  but I'm sure there must be a way to do avoid this hack.

Installation and Setup / Re: Crash when opening specific file

Hello,

Not that old. The file I have problems with is about 130 pages. The older version is 90 pages long. Everything was done on the 1.5.8 version of Scribus.

Furthermore, I've tried something new about this:

- Open the native Ubuntu version of Scribus
- Open my file
> it crashes.

- Open the Wine version of Scribus
- Open the native Ubuntu version of Scribus
- Open my file with the latter
> It works.

My guess is that there is a memory management problem somewhere.

            x              (x)                    you mention "older version of the file", how old of a version? what version of scribus did you use to create it originally?

Today the problem shows again.

I start my pc, I do some things on the Internet, and then try to open my file. Scribus crashes. I open my file with the portable version, I close it. I open the file with the native version of Scribus, it doesn't crash. My guess is that it's a memory allocation problem.

In 1.5.8 layers should work across master pages. Are you really using layers, and not refering to the "level" of the objects?

I just did a quick test here, the text frame is on the Master page and the image on the normal page. They are on separate layers.
