General Discussion / The conquer CBD products
Last post by cbd gummies - Today at 01:50:17 AM
I gave cbd gummies a whack at for the treatment of the maiden previously, and I'm amazed! They tasted excessive and provided a sense of calmness and relaxation. My importance melted away, and I slept well-advised too. These gummies are a game-changer for me, and I highly endorse them to anyone seeking appropriate emphasis alleviation and better sleep.

nice to see somebody testing the notes BEFORE using them in production!

as you might have noted, they're still an experimental feature and not all features are there and not everything works as one would expect.

about your questions:

1. a "story" is a set of linked text frames. i guess there is no need to define a document : - )

2. i think that scribus should have a third option in the range: section. since this option will not be there for some time, as a workaround you could define a different "note style" for each chapter. (i've added a ticket:

3. the best way to import formatted text is to load the file into the text frame. i did not test, but i guess that you did. the best formats to import from being odt, html and probably idml. sadly, if the import from libreoffice does not recognize the footnotes, then i fear that there is not much you can do. (see if you want to feel a bit less alone)

currently, there is nobody who is working on the footnotes, so i fear that in the near future there is no progress to be expected.

it might be possible to do something with a script that converts the styles to inline frames (not sure that all commands for this are available, though)

but pat's suggestions to use the scrapbook is probably the best one.

dunno what you mean by automatic?

one way, if you get a sample set up they way you like you can

A) trun the page into a master page and then reuse it as needed
B) put a copy of the page or elements into a scrapbook folder and use as needed, I don't think the scrapbook will bring the style with it into a new document so I would have to test that

My "need": based on title style tags (H1, H2), automatically set a text frame and a background picture, with proper spacing.
I doubt it's feasible, but asking cost nothing :D.
User Interface / Re: Improve the nodes editing

- Conversion of nodes from corner to others should auto-relocate the control points immediately.
- Moving multiple nodes should be possible.

The PDF exported from Scribus is the only one I have ever had problems with. The Mint document reader is the default and comes with every installation of Mint  and is very stable, as does the full open source office program LibreOffice. My downloaded file is 21.7MB and therefore probably too large to be uploaded to the forum. (Also I would not know how to do that.) It is available from the Mint download page here (You must look for the Writer Guide there) :-

Linux Mint 7.3 Cinnamon

I suspect however you would rather look at my downloaded version rather than download your own. However I do not think my file will be of much use. It opens quite correctly, I can print any part of it I want, isolate any page I want and view all the properties. I can make as many copies as I want an load them on any of my other machines so I do not see that there is a problem with the file.

All of this started out with me wanting a large document that I could use to practice and learn about bookbinding. I struck the pagination problem and thanks to the help I have received from this forum I have solved the issue I was having. On my other forums I can usually amend the topic heading as [SOLVED] to enable others to quickly see that there might be a solution to their problem contained within. I cannot see such a facility on the Scribus forum. Is there one please?
