Hi to all, today I was very surprised to find that the euro symbol cannot be displayed in the current Scribus. No matter which font I use, a box is displayed, but not the character. This applies to a whole range of tested fonts, e.g. Arial, Arial Narrow, Cheltenham, Times, and even Eurosymbol (font). All of these fonts have this character in the character set and can be displayed in Word or Corel programs, for example.
Can you try out whether it works on your computer? Or is this a bug in Scribus?
Hallo an alle, ich habe heute sehr überrascht festgestellt, daß das Euro-Zeichen im aktuellen Scribus nicht dargestellt werden kann. Egal, welchen Font ich dafür verwende, es wird ein Kasten angezeigt, nicht aber das Zeichen. Dies gilt für eine ganze Reihe ausgetesteter Schriften, z.B. Arial, Arial Narrow, Cheltenham, Times, und sogar Eurosymbol (font). Dabei haben all diese Schriftzeichen dieses Zeichen im Zeichensatz, können es z.B. in Word oder in Corel-Programmen darstellen.
Könnt Ihr mal ausprobieren, ob es auf Eurem Rechner geht? Oder ist dies ein Fehler in Scribus?

I have certain text frames that I'm only using for bookmarking purposes, so I set the text color to none, which makes the text invisible within Scribus. However, when I generate a PDF, all the text is visible. Am I going about this the wrong way?

not sure where you are going with this, but will take a stab at it anyway.. From what I can infer from you message, your message, you dont want any compression applied at all to any images? and/or a preferance to use certain compression for some image types, when exporting to a PDF?

is there a way to export to PDF "keeping" images as much as possible? By this I mean using DCT encoding for originally JPEG images, using the original bitstream if possible (no recompression), and LZW or Flate compression for PNG/GIF/TIFF? I can set some of this manually but ideally it should be automatic.
currently, only the future stable branch scribus 1.6 gets compiled. as soon as 1.6 will be out, i will probably create a new docker image for the main branch (it's not hard, but it takes some time: if somebody wants to contribute to it, all the bits are on gitlab...).
currently, there is no important difference between 1.6 and 1.7, except that 1.7 contains nitram's contributions for a "new UI" (still a work in progress): that's why i'm not really in a hurry.
i'm not sure that it's easy / possible to create images for windows or mac os. if you know how we could do them, your hints and contributions are very welcome.
finally, we had a discussion on using more modern development tools not so long ago:
