hi franz

if things do not work with scribus 1.4, you're welcome to try out scribus 1.5 (currently 1.5.8, 1.6 soon).

Hi all

This might be a stupid question, but I found nothing with search. So when I write or paste numbers in the text box, they show up like there is a space between them, when in reality there is not. If a single number is between letters, it shows up normally. It is wysiwyg, so it also prints like it shows on screen. Very annoying.

All other programs show these numbers correctly if I copy and paste them from scribus. I've never had this problem before, and I've been using Scribus for about ten years.

I tested versions 1.4.6 and 1.4.8, no difference. This must be some basic setting or something I just can't figure out. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

dunno if this will work, put the bookmarks on a separate layer and set the layer to non-printing
but I don't know if that will prevent the layer from outputting to the pdf

Hi to all,
today I was very surprised to find that the euro symbol cannot be displayed in the current Scribus. No matter which font I use, a box is displayed, but not the character.
This applies to a whole range of tested fonts, e.g. Arial, Arial Narrow, Cheltenham, Times, and even Eurosymbol (font). All of these fonts have this character in the character set and can be displayed in Word or Corel programs, for example.

Can you try out whether it works on your computer?
Or is this a bug in Scribus?


Hallo an alle,
ich habe heute sehr überrascht festgestellt, daß das Euro-Zeichen im aktuellen Scribus nicht dargestellt werden kann. Egal, welchen Font ich dafür verwende, es wird ein Kasten angezeigt, nicht aber das Zeichen.
Dies gilt für eine ganze Reihe ausgetesteter Schriften, z.B. Arial, Arial Narrow, Cheltenham, Times, und sogar Eurosymbol (font). Dabei haben all diese Schriftzeichen dieses Zeichen im Zeichensatz, können es z.B. in Word oder in Corel-Programmen darstellen.

Könnt Ihr mal ausprobieren, ob es auf Eurem Rechner geht?
Oder ist dies ein Fehler in Scribus?
