Title: Scribus Portable App Startup script
Post by: tray on January 05, 2013, 05:31:06 am
Hi,

I'm using Scribus 1.4 on windows 7 using a portable apps installation.  I want to use a startup script but can't apply the path and specified python file in the preferences in scribus.  I check apply exit the dialog box and then return to the preferences but the startup script field is empty.  Any ideas?

Other preferences once applied are stored correctly.

Thanks

Hi tray,

If you could please post the script you'd like to use, I can look into this for you. Also, if you could test if this behaviour works the same in an installed copy of Scribus on Win 7, I would appreciate it.

Thanks!

I have tested this behaviour on a clean Windows machine with an installed copy of Scribus, and have had the same problem. As a result, I have filed a bug report for the issue, as it is a bug within Scribus, not within the PortableApps package. See here for the bug: http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=11336
