PDF Generation / Re: Embedding fonts on PDF export crashes Scribus

Ah, yes. I thought being generic as this has been an issue for me since I remember..  But several last versions, now using 1.5.7. Can't remember the first one I noticed it with, though.

PDF Generation / Embedding fonts on PDF export crashes Scribus
« Last post by MikaA on August 31, 2021, 03:38:35 pm »
Scribus crashes always when saving to PDF and clicking "Embed all" Fonts-tab.

Is it just me or does that happen to others?

Beginner Talk / Importing PDF and exporting PDF colour changes
« Last post by hagar_uk on August 31, 2021, 12:40:32 pm »
Hi,

I am newbie here, so thanks for any help. just wondering if you can help me out o a colour issue here.

I am importing a a PDF that has a lot of PDF marks in in set as CMYK
I am copying the mark creating a new document pasting it in and exporting it.
When I open up the new new document i see that something that was 50Magneta is now a mix of CMY

When I go back into scribus, I see that when I imported the PDF the colour is no Magent but something like colour from PDF#12345 so guessing it has imported the colour as RGB, is there anyway around this and to bring in the colour as CMYK?

Thank you, Rob, for the ideas.
Manual lines seem like a complicated solution, as the lines will have to be aligned to the margins as well as the text lines and the distance between the question and the beginning of the line should also be equal.

I gave your first solution a try, but can't seem to make it work. Nothing happens. Maybe I'm missing something in the way I set up the tab stop. See screenshot. (I have tried it without the bullet list and also tried it with english text, just to see if that makes a difference, but no).

Text and Typography / Visibility of Zero Width Spaces
« Last post by Ewac on August 30, 2021, 02:01:02 pm »
Hello,
I am creating documents in the Khmer language, which does not space words (spaces are used as a form of punctuation). However, zero width spaces are used in between words in digital text processing. These zero width spaces work fine in Scribus, however I cannot see them, which makes editing very tricky. In Open Office those spaces are displayed along with other non-printing characters, but I can't see them in Scribus, even though I have already turned on View-Text Frames-Show Control Characters (which shows all other non-printing characters just fine).
Does anyone have a solution to this problem? Any help appreciated.

Screenshots show what I see in Open Office vs what it looks like in Scribus

Two options to consider:

1. Paragraph style with tab stops
Edit > Styles >  New > Paragraph Style
Tabs and Indentation: Add a tab stop (click on the ruler)
Set the Tab to be 'Right', set the position to your margin width
Set the fill character to be dot or underscore ...
Hit Done
Apply this paragrpah style to the 'questions' you want to have a user submission part - after the text hit 'tab' .


2. Manual lines
Create your text - don't add anything for where the answers are going to go
Insert > Line
Draw a line on the page (doesn't matter if it's not horizontal)
Properties: set the rotation to 0.0
Move your line to where you want it (use align to margins). If a line is too long or too short, select the line, hold the Ctrl* key and drag the start anchor where you need it
If you want to get fancy and have all lines equally spaced out (I would - the human eye is remarkably sensitive to misalignment)
  • Draw one line .. place it in line with the top most question
  • copy and paste the line .. for was many times as you have text lines on the page
  • move one of the lines to the bottom most text line
  • select all of the lines (but not the text frame)
  • Align and Distribute > Distribute > Make vertical gaps equal
  • Align and Distribute > Align > To Margins > Align right
  • Delete any 'line' you don't need. adjust length of lines as above

* Ctrl key on windows .. locks the resizing to specific grid, makes it easy to keep horizontal, don't what the key is on Linux

Thank you so much for the reply!
If I understand your solution correctly, that would only work for lager areas that are supposed to be equally filled with lines. I'm not sure how to apply that to my document(s).
The lines usually start right after the question. Some are long, some are short, some go over multiple rows, most are supposed to go all the way to the margin for a smooth look.
The screenshot shows an example, those lines were created by the author with an underline score. Not much formatting has been done yet.
