Title: Master page content missing in PDF export
Post by: SDon on August 28, 2021, 12:18:19 am
Hi,

I am trying to design a 100-page book in Scribus 1.5.6.1. Almost all pages need page numbers and running heads and I have set up master pages to incorporate those elements wherever required. They work fine when I print them out. But when I export the pages to PDF, the master page elements (page numbers and running heads) are missing. I have attached a four-page sample .sla and the resultant .pdf files here. Hope to hear from the experts.

When you export as PDF - the option for 'Clip to Printer Margins' is selected - deselect this checkbox and generate.

FYI - this is how I identified this:

cheers

Thanks a lot, Rob,

That worked. I had the 'Clip to Printer Margin' checked, and the master page contents were outside the top margin. Thank you for pointing it out. I was thinking in terms of a missing layer. I should have asked you half a day earlier.
