General Discussion / Re: a humble inquiry regarding 1.6
« Last post by Ykonoclast on Today at 11:43:45 am »
Thanks for chiming in Utnik.

If absolutely no information on the release whatsoever is possible to find, is there somewhere a sort of rundown of what's left to do? It would help to know what is the precise targeted feature list of v1.6 and what is already done in v1.5.7 : that would permit an educated decision (do I need to wait for this feature, is it already done etc.). As an aside, this would give an impression of the time left to wait : if a lot of work is still to be done then it will be in a long time, if most of the features are implemented, then final release is rather soon-ish.

The information available on the web (mostly the wiki) is a bit confusing and sometimes years out of date (looking at the mantis I can find issues with last update in 2016 and a targeted release of 1.6 in 2017...). I can't find a reliable roadmap. Surely the team has a precise set of goals somewhere?

General Discussion / What is "Extended Image Properties"
« Last post by DIYPlanner on June 18, 2021, 05:11:34 pm »
I recently found this menu item "Extended Image Properties" under "Item>Image" menu,but I can't make sense what it is used for.I looked up the help file,search for this function,and just found this sentence,but I can't understand as well:
"Vector masks are also detected and can be used to control the display within Extended Image Properties."
Who can explain it in plain words and tell me what its usage is,thanks in advance!

Did you try to export to PDF?

Scribus displays a lower resolution preview when editing (this is configurable).

I reverted my Chromebox to a date when 1.4.8 was working and the AppImage also spun up so I am back to work
Looks as if I had mangled my QT5 environment  but I am not enquiring
thanks for all the help
Raster and Vector Graphics / lower resolution bmp

Hi everyone from France
Excuse my english
Guess this is a common problem :
The resolution when my image is imported is lower than the original file
I don't have this problem with other images in my Scribus file...
original file : 393x498 px

General Discussion / Re: How define styles for TEXT FRAME?
« Last post by Nermander on June 17, 2021, 10:07:46 pm »
I didn't check the example, I just read the text "is there a method to define a style for the TEXT FRAMES by default?".

And that question is what I responded to.

hi ykonoclast

i'm not a developer and have no higher insight on the roadmap to 1.6.
but i use scribus since 1.3.x and in early times i never changed to a so called 'unstable' version for my real work. then i needed one of the new features from the upcoming version 1.4.4 (export to .pdf/x-1a) and compiled it for macOS (which was really hard for me as i had no idea how to do it…)
after that i had always the last 'stable' version and something newer. as there is no version officially called 'stable' running on a recent (64-bit-only) macOS, i work now with 1.5.8.svn and have 1.5.7 and as fallback versions – just in case…

i don't recommend for everyone to go that far, but if you can't wait to work with the new text engine or the much improved 'properties' palettes you might switch to 1.5.7, as it runs reliably (maybe more stable than some earlier 'stable' releases…)
you might not switch to .svn releases and keep in mind that different development releases may show some small layout differences…
