PDF Generation / cropping images to the visible part on export
« Last post by Dogil on November 22, 2021, 06:30:46 pm »
Do you have ideas how to crop images in PDFs when exporting (or later)?
I's been discussed here and the mailinglist before but maybe things have changed since.

Hi Philogos,

I did a package search for ubuntu 20.04 and 1.5.5 is the only scribus listed. Ubuntu 18.04 still has 1.4.6. I agree with utnik regarding installing the newest version on both OS's. Snap or Flatpak will get you the latest version for Ubuntu, the flatpak is what I have been using for a couple years in Linux Mint.

Add a right justified tab just before the right side paragraph margin.

The paragraph shall of course be left justified.

It should work (I use this for table of contents all the time, but mainly in Word, though I see no reason it should not work in Scribus).

I have cracked it!  Just replace spaces with chr(255) i.e non breaking space in both Text1 and Text2 then have an ordinary space between the two.  Align Text Forced Justified then does exactly what I want.....

I don't know of any software that can do a flush left and simultaneously flush right alignment in one single text line. The alignment command is always »per line«, not for snippets.

I have a text file like this:

First Piece of Text \t Second Piece of text

The \t is a tab character.  Both pieces of text are variable lengths.

How can I get Text1 flush left and Text 2 flush right?  Clicking on Justify doesn't seem to do anything.

Thank you, guys, for asking and answering this question! I was having the same problem and couldn't figure out what had gone wrong.
Beginner Talk / Image Missing
« Last post by E.J.Su on November 20, 2021, 02:19:30 am »
I am new to Scribus, and slowly figuring out how to work this thing, but I ran into an issue that I cam completely baffled by.

I was importing an image, a PNG, to be exact. When I was importing, in the dialog windows I see the preview of the images, and everything was fine, but about a minute later, in another Image box, I was importing the same exact image, the image preview no longer showing, I import it anyways, and it just shows a big red cross with the filename in the center of it. The file linkage also show that the image is missing and I am 100% sure it's right there. Not only that, many of the images in the same folder are no longer shows preview and acts as missing image when I tried to import those.

Can someone help me out with this? I am at lost.

Thanks in advance.
