You are correct in that I did finish it in LibreOffice first, but I am not trying to convert it to anything else.

Then why do you want to import it into Scribus?

LibreOffice can export directly to PDF.

What is the OS you are using, and the specs of the machine? Mostly interested in the amount of ram.

hi nijineko

it's easy to import text fron an .odt file.
but in my interpretation of your problem you finished the whole page layout in openOffice or libreOffice and try to import this work in a scribus file. if i'm right, this is not a supported task. scribus is not an .odt-to-something-else converter. the main task of scribus is the page layout itself and the export in a high quality print file.

now your choices are:
  • generate your print file with your office program.
  • import the text (formatted, if you used paragraph styles…) and do the layout work again.
good luck

I do not mind doing the layout work again, in fact, that is what I intend to do and why I am trying to import it into Scribus.

Yes, I did use paragraph styles.

However, Scribus cannot seem to import the text only document at all as it pretty much crashes every time I try.

PDF Generation / Re: PDF form printing issue - some characters missing
« Last post by Juhele on October 13, 2021, 04:57:27 pm »
so, luckily this seems to be "false alarm"  :D

We did several tests and found out it has to be some software related issue on that 2 particular machines and not PDF issue. No idea whether it was Windows or Adobe related bud I was told that after "some updates" (without further details :P ) it is solved.

At least I am lucky this is not a Scribus bug and also not my fault (anything wrong with the form I made).

Beginner Talk / The name of folder of photos
« Last post by Ricardo Valezzi on October 13, 2021, 12:47:42 pm »
I installed scribus on another computer and try to recover an old file but the photos do not appear. How can I find the name of the folder that was linked to the .sla file? I have the .sla file and the photos in folders within the same directory. I'm using the image management tool but it's all too slow. Thank you!

Scripts and Plugins / Re: how do I run Scribus 1.5.7 with Python 3 for scripting?
« Last post by LeonardoM on October 13, 2021, 09:52:02 am »
Hello,
You should do the opposite, run the python scripts inside SCRIBUS.
Scribus 1.5.7 also comes with python 3.7 but, if you need to write scripts using additional libraries, you should use the python you installed standalone on the operating system.
However, if you read the documentation it is well explained how to do it.

Scripts and Plugins / Re: Start scripting with Python
« Last post by LeonardoM on October 13, 2021, 09:41:20 am »
I downloaded version 1.5.7 and the python module is well integrated with SCRIBUS.
The attached documentation is also very rich.
I have to study a lot! :)
I want to try my hand at creating the script to update the TEXTFRAME using an external text file that comes from the translation studios.

Layout Issues / Importing 2x 400 page books, one with pictures, one without... help?
« Last post by nijineko on October 13, 2021, 01:34:39 am »
I am very new to Scribus.

I searched around for some documentation and tutorials and followed what I found about having Scribus automatically create extra frames upon import, but it did not work as described or hoped.

Looking for guidance on how to import (as two separate projects) two 400 page books, one text only, the other text with pictures.

Both are coming from an ODT file format.

I am open to any suggestions and guidance.
