This is also happening to me. The trick of creating a text frame off to the side is all it takes for the original text frame to start being editable again.

Rule 1 when it comes to Scribus: Never print directly from Scribus.

Export to a PDF and print from a PDF viewer. Make sure the PDF viewer is set to print 100% scale.

Hi all, have just started working in Scribus, and really liking it.

While my problem is a bit different to the above, the description is exactly the same.

I have an A3 page in Scribus. In that page is one square image, sized to the margins of the page, filling it to the side margins.

I have an A3 printer (Brother inkjet), with A3 paper in it, set to print at 100%.
Normally that gives me an A3 printout.

With Scribus I keep getting this:

which looks to be printing at about 70% size. (The back line is a shape near the outer edge of the page to better show the size of the printout)

Any ideas what might be causing that? Scribus 1.6.2 on Windows 11. Thanks!

1.4.6 is a very old version.

Try 1.6.2

I noticed though that when googling for "scribus download" you end up on an old wiki page saying 1.4.6 is the latest version....

Hi, I just installed Scribus 1.4.6 on my PC running Windows 11 Pro. I also installed  Ghostscript, after downloading it from their website. When I try to open a .eps file, I get the message: "Importing filename.eps failed!" Please advise as to what I should do to get the file to open in Scribus. Thanks in advance.

Thanks. The left-most button tells me that text flow is disabled. I've selected the image frame which is in the middle of some text.
