I have the same problem with random linked text boxes appearing far off the end of the document by themselves. No idea why it happens or how to prevent it, but very interested to find out

Installation and Setup / Scribus 1.5.8 interface pixelated
« Last post by Ewac on January 07, 2022, 10:03:51 am »
I just installed Scribus 1.5.8 and the interface is bigger than before and pixelated, which makes it uncomfortable to work with. I could not find any settings related to this under "Preferences". Is there any way to fix this?


Attached is a screenshot from 1.5.8 and one from 1.5.5 in comparison.

As for fonts I'd check and see if your scribus font path is pointing to the right set of fonts. There maybe some path issues as to where Inkscape may look for fonts on your system and where scribus looks for them. Check their preferences and make sure they use the same set of fonts. inkscape my use a default set that scribus can see. also check if there is an option to embed the fonts used in inkscape for the exported file. that may solve the issue.

Beginner Talk / Hanging link from text frame on last page of document
« Last post by peterh on January 03, 2022, 01:49:38 am »
I am running Scribus 1.4.8 on a Raspberry Pi 4B with 4GB of RAM.  I am currently building a 96 page document (700KB) and all was going well until I discovered that there appears to be a trailing link from the last text frame pointing out into empty space.  Exporting the document as a pdf then results in a warning that pages with numbers larger than 96 are faulty.  By choosing to ignore the warnings and proceed with the export I get a perfectly good pdf file.  If anybody knows (a) why this is happening, and(b) how to cure it, I'd be very grateful to hear.

OK, I got a bit further.

The .eps export from LibreOffice Draw was not OK.
Opening the .svg file in Inkscape and exporting to .eps there solved it.
I uploaded the new file ("DummyInkscapeUngrouped.eps") to the GDrive I linked in the original post.

If I import this file to Scribus I now see that it is imported as text - it is shown as text in Outline window and if I print the file to PDF it is selectable.

However, the layout and the font changed during the import, spacing is messed up.


If I view the .eps file in other tools (e.g. IrfanView, GDrive) it looks normal, so the export itself seems to be OK.

Are there any nuances to .eps import I should be aware of?

Hello again :)

Okay, so I've figured out bookmarks and hyperlinks (to pages).

Luckily, I've been saving as different file names, but now my newest save,
the one with the bookmarks and hyperlinks, doesn't seem to be editable.

The text seems to group up and I can't open Story Editor.

I really don't want to have to go back and re-do bookmarks and hyperlinks, but
so is there a way to unlock or something the newest file?

Thanks so much!
Be well :)

Happy New Year
Best regards,
Kevin H.

Thanks for the tip. From the Outline window I can see that the text is imported as polygons and polylines.
So the issue is not in the export to PDF, but either with the export to .eps or the import into Scribus.

The reason for this is accessibility for blind people and convenience (to allow copy-paste values from the PDF). While not as important on the graphs, it is more relevant for the tables (which I'm also trying to copy from Calc) that exhibit the same problem.

I'm on scribus 1.5.5, there might be diferences in how this is handled. I've noted that scribus treats the copied object as a group of objects. The elements are available to edits via the "Outline" window.

Now for some clarification, as you are asking to make the text selectable in a pdf.  For what reason do they need to be selectable?

I've come a few steps forward by switching to Scribus 1.5.7.

In this version I am able to import both .svg and .eps file formats by using File / Import / Get Vector File.
And both versions import text together with the graphic.

Importing svg didn't offer me any options, while importing the .eps file did. I had an option to import text as vectors or as text. Here I selected to import text as text.

However, when I export to PDF, the text on the graph is not selectable, it behaves as an image.

The rest of the document is selectable just fine.

I tried two versions of the graph - one that uses the same font as is already used in the document (and is selectable) and the other version where the font is different from the rest of the text. What I noticed in the second scenario is that the font that is used in the image is not shown in the list of fonts in the document.

Any further help is welcome. I added "Dummy.sla" and "Dummy.pdf" to the shared folder, they reflect the second scenario.
