Quote from: a.l.e on February 26, 2024, 07:00:23 PMfor your first goal (sorting the recipes alphabetically in each toc's chapter) you should indeed be able to use the TOC tool scribus provides (if your a bit of a masochist)Yeah, it wasn't that easy to figure out how the Scribus toc works but well, i have found that exporting the text, formating it in shell script and reimport it to Scribus is a little bit scary, but i'm on Linux for appx. 10yrs so that doesn't scare me to much
Quoteor the TOC script i have created (https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-script-repository/tree/master/table_of_contents, if you're brave enough to want to learn how to run scripts inside of scribus), select the lines in each chapter and then use a script (i guess i will volunteer to create it) to sort the selection (so you will need to learn how to use scripts anyway...)Hmmm, i will give it a try but if it's to hard for me i had to live without a real index (for this time)
if you want an index with the ingredient, you will probably need to create a real index (or suffer a lot by duplicating the content in "hidden" fields and use the TOC tool provided by scribus... but i'm not sure it can do it).
but, even then, it all depends on how you want to present the result.
Quotei don't know how much content you already have, but i would like to suggest you to start putting in three or four recipes and then manually prepare an TOC and an index the way you want them to be... and show the result.for now i have about 70 recipes in plain txt, and at the beginning i struggled a bit with Scribus templates but it looks i have all i need. Just now a document with 5 recipes (each recipe on a single page) and playing around, the learning curve in my opinion is good, but some relations of functions are looking for me like a mess , but at the end no big deal.
Quotefinally, i will start a topic explaining how to share files in this forum and link it later...Yeah, great. Thank you a lot for jumping in.
