General Discussion / Re: How define styles for TEXT FRAME?
« Last post by Nermander on Today at 10:35:15 pm »
Isn't this what the Item tools in the Preferences/Document setup is for?

(Define a style as default that is.)

Scribus forums / Story Editor malfunction on Chromebook
« Last post by aldobranti on Today at 04:25:26 pm »
I have been running Scribus 1.4.8 and 1.5.6 under Debian Linux in a Chromebox
After a few minutes work in text frames, I go into a story editor which is completely unresponsive. My only action must be to quit the text frame, quit the application and go back in for a further few precious key strokes
This problem occurred first in S148 and I found no help in the web so I tried with the S156 appimage from the downlaod site.
With S148 I was using the debian/buster repos
the chromebox tracks Google Chrome OS and is currently at v 91.0.44

I have a professional job to get out of this which I am trying to do completely open source -- is any one out there successfully running scribus on a chrome os environment ? what debug information can I gather ?

hi,Royer11
Currently it's not possible to make text from render frame selectable.However you could export pdf from Scribus document contains render frame that all text in render frame being editable.The function could be enabled by checking "Embed PDF & EPS files" checkbox while you are in the "Save As PDF" dialogue.

« Last post by DIYPlanner on Today at 01:34:16 pm »
Hi,there
I got the source code of Scribus from Github and Scribus libraries from Sourceforge.net then tried to compile and build Scribus by following aoloe's tutorial(from https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-manual-development/blob/master/content/compiling-with-visual-studio-en.md). The environment I used is Windows 8 64bit in Chinese version with Visual Studio 2019 Community Edition in English,and had installed Qt 5.15.2 with MSVC 2015 64-bit module.I compiled scribus-libs-msvc2019.sln under scribus-1.5.x-libs-msvc2019 folder with no errors(but some warnings),then I compiled Scribus after set the path from SCRIBUS_LIB_ROOT and QT5_DIR to my Scribus libraries path and Qt installed path in Scribus-build-props.props,there was 83 errors with 218 warnings occured.I attach the error list contains all  errors and warnings.I hope someone could help me and sorry for my English.

hi royer

format one frame and send it to the scrapbook. from there you may drag it to any place in your layout or place it on another page with the coordinates from the original frame just by a double click on the scrapbook item…

hi john

…I originally had a title page Master Page set at 14 pt. size height (about 3/16") and the text fame in the document also set at 14 Pt.

I decided to increase the point size to 18 to make it larger (about 1/4") and edited both the Master Page and the Properties window for that text frame in the document to 18 pt.

if this is a text on the document page itself (not on the master page) there's no point in trying to edit some properties of it on the master page. but if the text is selected, you should be able to edit it by the 'text properties' window.
the much better approach would be to use paragraph styles. then you could edit the style settings…

Quote
To throw another wrench into this, the text is copy and paste from a LibreOffice document that was also originally composed with 14 pt type size.  I went back into the LO document and changed the point size there.  Nothing changed size-wise in the LO document either…

in this case i think you do something strange. (i.e. editing the settings without a selection containing the text in question…)
i can't think of a bug that affects scribus and libreoffice that way…
