Free discussion / Re: Scribus User Eye Health
Last post by drstuartterry - Today at 03:11:15 PM
Maintaining good eye health is essential for overall well-being. Schedule regular eye exams with the Best Ophthalmologist in San Antonio to catch any issues early. Eat a balanced diet rich in omega-3s, lutein, zinc, and vitamins C and E to protect against age-related vision problems. Wear sunglasses that block 99-100% of UVA and UVB rays, and use safety goggles for hazardous activities. Limit screen time by following the 20-20-20 rule to reduce eye strain, and stay hydrated to prevent dry eyes. These simple steps can help keep your vision sharp and your eyes healthy.

thank you, utnik,

this is what I too observed...

anyway, I read everywhere that tables don't function in Scribus...
but my conclusion is that Scribus is good and precise, even with tables.

I like it :)

(I have never edited a magazine on paper, so I can't really tell, but so far, designing
a book's cover, and the TOC, Scribus excels, works pretty well, and offers a great amount of control over every detail)

hi jeepe

i just tested in scribus 1.6.2. you can apply table styles to a slection of table cells, but unfortunately you can't do the same with paragraph styles or character styles.
this might be worth to file a feature request.

hi digirew

try 'embed embed pdf & eps files' while exporting your .pdf files. this should exclude those files from the color management.

Maybe the image could be converted to CMYK and only use K in the image, using something like Photoshop, gimp, krita, ...? Then place the image into the scribus document?

Hi,

What I was trying to describe was having a table, say, 22 rows, 1 cell in each, for simplicity...
and we want to apply a certain style to those cells...

To me it looks like we have to "apply" a style to each cell individually...
and I was wondering, still I am, whether it can be done at once?
In a bulk :)

Beginner Talk / greyscale images still shows u...
Last post by digirew - July 12, 2024, 09:03:03 PM
I have a multi page document. Some pages are only greyscale and some are not.

The pages that are intended to be greyscale, I only place greyscale images (PDF files) onto the page. I can confirm using adobe acrobat that the original pdf image only contains "K" color and not CMY values.


However, when I place the PDF image into a scribus document, and then export all the pages, the greyscale image that I imported is now using all the CMYK info.


How do I get Scribus not to touch/change any colors of an PDF image placed into scribus doc? ie. if I place greyscale pdf keep it greyscale, if I import  full colors keep it full colors.

Thank you,

Digirew

are you talking about scribus, .sla files?  or document types?

Text and Typography / Re: Font has changed
Last post by Temporal - July 12, 2024, 04:08:57 PM
Yes, I had copied the frame, not the text in the frame. I've found a workaround now. I removed Arial from the fonts and then when I reopened the document I was prompted that it was missing a font and I could change it to the correct one. But it's worrying that it happened.
