Does the image display?  Have you tried hitting F3 and then using free scaling to change the size of the image?

I have the same issue on 1.6.1

I create 3 separate PDF checkboxes named "s1", "s2" & "s3"
For some reason only 1 can be ticked at a time. Ticking another turns OFF the previously ticked one.
This is more like the behaviour of a radio button & not a checkbox.

I am unable to find a way around this.

Not having the dark theme by default is something and not having it at all is another! How you guys in 2024 still don't have this implemented? Incredible...

I would look at simply using two test frames on each page, potentially the top text frames can be in one chain and the bottom text frames in another. But you will have to manually adjust the sizes of the frames och probably also adjust frame breaks manually, so maybe linking both set of frames is not that useful.

Where does the text come from? Would it be feasible to manually populate each text frame from source?

It sounds as if you need to tell the imposition software to order the pages differently.

Can you show the settings/options you use to impose the pages?

I had problems with hypenation too (running Scribus 1.5.8 on Ubuntu Linux).

What has worked on my computer:

-> I have added the dictionaries hyph_de_DE.dic and hyph_it_IT.dic in the directory /usr/share/hyphen. After that, I have been able to use hyernation on these languages.

-> On Catalan, I have had to change the name of the file hyph_ca_ES.dic to hyph_ca.dic and then it has worked as well.
