Quote from: a.l.e on February 10, 2024, 08:16:51 PMmay i ask you, why do you want to get through scribus?I am wanting to get it into a file format that is recognized by publishers. Scribus is one potential option.
what are you missing in the pdf created by libreoffice?
Quote from: Nermander on February 11, 2024, 09:27:07 AMYeah, I probably have my settings incorrect because LibreOffice does have paragraph widow/orphan controls.Quote from: nijineko on February 10, 2024, 07:54:16 PMI can try the base odt files in Scribus... however it has been laid out such in the odt files to prevent paragraphs and tables from being split across pages, so there are a lot of inserted page breaks - might be problematic.
Not to be picky, but adding manual page breaks is usually not the best way to handle things like like that. But maybe Libreoffice does not have all the necessary functions.
In MS Word there is at least a paragraph property to not split a paragraph over a page break, there is a paragraph property to "keep with next" (so if you use that on a few paragraphs, they will all end up on the same page as the paragraph after them).
I almost never add a manual page break in MS Word, because there is even a "page break before" option for paragraphs. A manually inserted page break essentially becomes a character and can cause a lot of issues when you try to move things around.

have you tried to use a web browser to view the pdf
can you post a sample sla file?
Quote from: Nermander on February 19, 2024, 08:12:55 PMBecause there is not much use implementing the same things in several applications.Not exactly. Just for sake of already having vectors elsewhere, they now need to add full CMYK support to make it compatible with Scribus. Apart from all the file export/import chain...
Quote from: tom on February 19, 2024, 05:08:30 PMOh, man! Now this is great and feels like home! So, why can't we have the same Bezier functionality in Scribus? Going between several applications is not the end of world but, doing it just to manage a few control points decently is funny.
Quote from: a.l.e on February 19, 2024, 06:23:06 PMstill, it would be wonderful, if somebody who knows more than average about vector drawing could help improve the node editing in scribus!Sure! It's pretty simple and current nodes panel has just more stuff than needed and missing the essential ones. These are:
just the interaction, not the features.
as it is now, it's painful.
Quote from: tom on February 19, 2024, 02:34:53 PMOK, I will try to be clear without tons of complaints.
Let's check this everyday example...
Subject: There is a poor bitmap logo (sent by client) and you typically need to vectorize it by hand.
Quote from: Nermander on February 19, 2024, 04:09:19 PMDo it in Inkscape instead.Oh, man! Now this is great and feels like home! So, why can't we have the same Bezier functionality in Scribus?
