Installation and Setup / Re: Scribus 1.6.1 Dark Mode in...
Last post by kn0 - April 07, 2024, 03:22:13 PM
I can confirm this to work. Once Scribus is started with "Scribus.exe -platform windows:darkmode=2", one can also switch from light to dark and vice versa in Windows Settings and Scribus adjusts automatically without restart (Icons still must be adjusted manually in the Scribus preferences). So the easiest fix would be for now to always start Scribus with that command?

However, unfortunately, this dark mode is not the most appealing. Attached you can find screenshots with the various Themes I can pick. blank and windowsvista (I think they may be the same) have (terrible) white borders all over the place. Fusion has amongst others errors when displaying inactive menu elements. Also, all of them seem to pick black instead of Windows' darker gray for dark coloring.

The screenshot @AdmFubar posted of dark mode in Linux looks much more polished.

Using "STARDATE" would be more fun

Raster and Vector Graphics / Upgrading from scribus 1.5.8 t...
Last post by alexander233 - April 07, 2024, 12:16:22 PM
After upgrading from 1.5.8 to 1.6.1 the two CMYK jpeg images in our publication suddenly have green background.

After re-opening an existing .sla these two images come across with wrong colors (these images used to have a white border, now the border is green).
On the document, color management is activated. We are using ISO Coated v2 300% (basICColor).

When I open the CMYK in GIMP the borders are shown as white and when I export as rgb and then import into scribus again, then the images show up correctly.

I prefer the [year.month] model: 2024.4 if the release came out this month. Easy to understand.

I've finally tried it out on Windows 10 and could get Scribus to start with the dark mode by:

  • Windwows key / command, type "dark" and choose "turn on dark mode for apps"
  • Change the option "Choose your color" to "dark"
  • Start scribus with "Scribus.exe -platform windows:darkmode=2"

Just picking the dark theme for Windows or using the darkmode command line option do not seem to be enough.

Anybody can find a better solution?

But you have a theme called HighContrastInverse, which the screenshot in this post

I was mainly referring to that the first 1 has been there a long time without changing, and thus it not really significant.

It's a bit like when you in homebrewing refer to the specific gravity, you usually say SG 50 when it is formally 1,050. (And you say -10 when it is rather 0,990.)

no, it's about dropping the third number (we have had a forth one sometimes) and increasing the first instead of the second.

but yes, we could also drop the 1. and make the next stable release scribus 7.0 or 7.1 (instead of the 1.8.0 that we would get, if we follow the current schema).

now that i think about it, your suggestion is even better and would avoid the "not so nice" 2.0 (many people associate a small revolution with the release of a 2.0 version...).
and i've already seen several people mentioning scribus 5.4 without the leading 1.

such a jump has already happened for other projects. that wouldn't something completely new.

You are essentially suggesting to drop the first 1 that has been there like forever? :)
