User Interface / Re: Improve the nodes editing

- Conversion of nodes from corner to others should auto-relocate the control points immediately.
- Moving multiple nodes should be possible.

The PDF exported from Scribus is the only one I have ever had problems with. The Mint document reader is the default and comes with every installation of Mint  and is very stable, as does the full open source office program LibreOffice. My downloaded file is 21.7MB and therefore probably too large to be uploaded to the forum. (Also I would not know how to do that.) It is available from the Mint download page here (You must look for the Writer Guide there) :-

Linux Mint 7.3 Cinnamon

I suspect however you would rather look at my downloaded version rather than download your own. However I do not think my file will be of much use. It opens quite correctly, I can print any part of it I want, isolate any page I want and view all the properties. I can make as many copies as I want an load them on any of my other machines so I do not see that there is a problem with the file.

All of this started out with me wanting a large document that I could use to practice and learn about bookbinding. I struck the pagination problem and thanks to the help I have received from this forum I have solved the issue I was having. On my other forums I can usually amend the topic heading as [SOLVED] to enable others to quickly see that there might be a solution to their problem contained within. I cannot see such a facility on the Scribus forum. Is there one please?

If you have a way to share the PDF, others could test it on their machines if thats the only machine and only operating system you have. I suspect the PDF reader as exporting in order or out of order should not matter. We should confirm your document is not otherwise surfacing a problem, because we have not seen issues with out of order exports in the past.

Quote from: bigal on February 20, 2024, 12:03:00 PMAs an experiment I used Scribus to open a 124 page PDF document. I know that my desktop machine is fairly old  but never the less it took over 20 minutes to load.
What are the specs of your machine, cpu type, clock speed, and amount of ram, plus the harddrive(s) specs?

Quote from: nijineko on February 19, 2024, 11:14:01 PMI am wanting to get it into a file format that is recognized by publishers. Scribus is one potential option.

What publishers are rejecting the PDF created from Libreoffice? And for what reason?

Importing a PDF to Scribus and the re-exporting to a PDF seems to not a very good workaround.

PDFs exported from Scribus are usually of very good quality.

Try another PDF viewer. The reference is Adobe Reader but it is unfortunately not available for Linux.
