Title: snap issue
Post by: lars_ on April 14, 2012, 03:15:26 pm
Hey.

I have a really big problem, or scribus has, with snapping to horizontal guides.

if i try to snap something to
10 mm it snaps to 9.647 mm
3 mm 2.647 mm

so it's of by 0.353 mm, all the time.

snapping to vertical guides workes fine.

I'm using Scribus 1.4.0

hi lars

this 0.353 mm is 1/72 inch or 1 pica point – it looks as a setting to adjust the layout to a pica grid…
did you check the option: 'page' → 'snap to grid'?

no, snap to grid is off (, also, as I wrote, this only affects the horizontal guide.)
I have reported this as a bug

hi lars

could you upload a sample file? (here or on the bug tracker…)
the good thing with scribus is, that all this settings are stored in the sla file in a reeadable way.

yes Utnik, here it is.(attached) (edit: it can also be found in the bug report at: http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=10677)

Can you reproduce it by

setting a horizontal guide

draw a line

snap the line to the guide?

thanks for helping out.

hi lars

thanks for the file – couldn't find out what causes the effect, but something strange (at least to me) in the 'properties' window.
i added a note and a screenshot to your bug report…

as I said on the bug report, thank you Utnik!
this clearly must be the problem.

I dont  see how a desktop publishing program can have this bug, and that no one notices it, it's a function that you use a lot.

this is clearly out of line  ;)
