if transparency happens to the entire image and not just the background, you can try moving an image out from under other images and see if the color changes

Do you think it's the same problem that causes the defect in the drop caps?

Quote from: MrB on April 09, 2024, 07:59:48 AMI'd like to see exactly which settings you are changing with these numbers. Can you explain further?

1. Change default paragraph style to Automatic Lines Spacing
2. Open textbox and insert Lipsum text
3. Select paragraph in textbox and change its size (override style) in Text Properties panel

Automatic Lines Spacing always should be 120% (or whatever percent it is default in Typographic Preferences).
Well, it is not.

Yes, that's exactly what I want to do: I define a general style for all the articles and then adjust the font size for each article separately.

No, that's not an option. There are too many articles. Finalising the layout this way would be too complicated.

I absolutely must finish this work before the end of the week. I'm going back to version 1.4.9, which is working well, but I'm going to continue to follow this discussion. I'd love to switch to the latest version of Scribus.

Scribus wrongly calculates automatic spacing when you change text size - 120% defined in preferences becomes 200 or 300% when decreasing of 100% when increasing font size.

No, that's not my problem.
I define a style that I'm going to apply to the articles in a magazine.
Then I do a direct formatting for each article separately. I modify the text properties to adjust its size to the block.
I can't edit the style, because I'd need a style for each block of text.
