Installation and Setup / 1.5x Catalina Not Launching
« Last post by scribo-steve on August 01, 2021, 09:18:13 pm »
hello all,
I've been using 1.5.5 for many months (MacOS 10.15.7 on MacBook Pro) successfully. Now, it will not launch, I get to the Check for Fonts splash screen and then it just quits. I downloaded 1.5.7 and same thing happens. I would really appreciate any suggestions or help. Thanks

Scripts and Plugins / Scribus PhotoBook Tools
« Last post by rafferty on August 01, 2021, 11:04:16 am »

‘PhotoBook Tools’ is a collection of scripts and tricks intended to create photo album pages in a fast and flexible way with Scribus. Please read the ‘Instructions’-file for installation and use!

Summary of workflow:
1) ‘PhotoBookLayoutMaker’-script generates image frame layouts (you can save them in the Scrapbook for future use).
2) Insert images in bulk into your image frames.
3) ‘PhotoBookFillFramesCentered’-script performs automatically a maximal fill of the selected image frames. If needed you can manually adjust.
4) ‘PhotoBookImageCropResize’-script will crop your images to the image frames and resize them to the desired dpi (reduction of file size).
5) Edit caption texts (if you have created them in step 1).
6) Export your photo book to pdf or other formats.

For Scribus 1.5.6 and higher (needs Python 3; tested in Windows 10 and Linux).

Beginner Talk / Indenting a Paragraph
« Last post by Yajee on July 31, 2021, 04:25:56 am »
Hey,

Say I have a text frame with a few paragraphs in it, one of those paragraphs I want to indent from the left and right by say 10mm, is that possible or do I have to place that paragraph in a separate text frame? When I try to do it it just indents all the paragraphs. On InDesign I was able to just highlight and indent said paragraph only so wondering what the method is here.

Thanks.

File > Import > Get Vector File

The resource gets imported as a single group - if you have multiple flourishes they will be imported as a single group. You have to ungroup to select individual items .. and sometimes that means regrouping the items you want.

Thanks Rob, if I were to single out one of the flourishes in say Affinity Designer or Inkscape or something, what is the best format to save it in to then import it into Scribus?

Hello,

Edit -> Colors and Fills

Have to select an existing color before the "add" color dialogue will show, never understood that myself.

Cheers!

Hello all,

As the title says, how is this done? I've been messing about with it but can't seem to find an option where I can add colours from scratch to a new palette?

Thanks.

Hello folks,

Just started using Scribus today so apologies for the newbie questions. I have some files with things like flourishes in them, the files are in .eps and .ai formats. Like in the image shown, how do I get just one of those flourishes like the one with the square around it into my document?

Using Scribus on Mac.

Thanks.
