Layout Issues / Text is not showing or being c...
Last post by Etrit - November 22, 2023, 01:50:14 AM
I'm at my wits end with this issue.

Like the subject says, text is either not showing on Preview, or when saved to PDF OR Preview via "Print" (File - Print - Change "Print Dest" to anything then click "Preview)

Or save it.

Heck!!! It's not even showing with Ghostscript installed with Print preview!!!

But it will show if I export it to PDF. 

Any clues whats happening?

I'm including a link to the .sls file on my Google Drive

Thanks for looking.
--And yes, I made the link Description the URL to the file so ya'll know it's legit.  ;D

There is no explicitly labeled ok button.. do you mean the "update text frame" button (CTRL-U)?

Installation and Setup / Requesting VPAT and HECVAT
Last post by pballocsmd - November 21, 2023, 11:32:22 PM
Hi everyone,

We are looking to use Scribus for our organization (college) but we need a VPAT and HECVAT or at least documentation that we attempted to contact a representative (developer, community manager, someone directly involved in the creation of the software) requesting these items.

Would it be possible for a representative to contact us via email so that we can discuss these two items?

VPAT: https://www.itic.org/policy/accessibility/vpat

HECVAT: https://library.educause.edu/resources/2020/4/higher-education-community-vendor-assessment-toolkit#tools
Specifically the On-Premise form


I understand that this might not make sense, or even the correct way to go about this, but it's just administrative red tape that I have to go through. If there is no response, I can simply go through another route set by our IT but I need to make an honest effort at contacting the developers. We simply need to go through an accessibility and security check.

I'm using 1.4.8. I can't remember the last version number.

I've got a page already created. When I do 'edit master' and then edit the text in a text box (CTRL-T), I make my changes and click the ok button. But it doesn't stick. So then I do it again and click the ok button, then it sticks. This happens every time.

can you explain a bit more. What steps are you going through when making a change?
and what version where you using previously, and what version are you using now?

After I updated the software, now I have to make changes or additions to text boxes twice for it to stick. Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks.

I exported it to a postscript file that seemed to give a workable result, but then even the png file you provided looked OK to me



Hi. Thanks for the image. Yeah I noticed that it does not like all the cropping on my svg. I can import other svg no problem. Luckily the above fix solved my issue, for now. Thanks for the help!

Quote from: AdmFubar on November 20, 2023, 07:00:00 PMright click the image, in the pop up menu select "preview settings", in the sub menu, is the preview set to normal or full resolution? if not select one of those and see if that corrects the image preview.


Hi. Thanks, this is what I was missing. As well I this fixed the problem with super high DPI image. So, thanks a lot.
