seems odd
I tried it on a flatpak version and it seems to work like it's supposed to

maybe posting some more info about your OS/DE/install will help sort the problem
is just one file or everyone you try?

Scripts and Plugins / a python script for the table of contents
« Last post by a.l.e on January 22, 2023, 06:09:20 pm »
for years i have been telling people not to use the table of contents tool provided by scribus.

i even worked on a new table of contents tool, which was based on the paragraph styles used in the document.
(the proof of concept did work, but among other factors, the scribus team was not willing to replace the current tool with the new one i was proposing... and i was not so eager to make the UI even more complex with two different table of contents tools!)

two weeks ago, pmj proposed a patch to support multiple levels of headings in the current TOC tool:

https://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=16887

i suddenly thought that it might be possible to create a script that would fill the attributes by looking at the paragraph styles used  in the document. and make the TOC tool a little less painful.
i wrote the script and it did work well, with a better patch for multilevel TOC it would have made the TOC tool usable... but why should i have stopped there?

here is a python script that runs inside of scribus and collects the paragraphs with specific styles (h1, h2, h3... but you can easily modify the global variable to support any naming schema you see fit) and creates a multilevel table of contents in the current frame:

https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-script-repository/tree/master/table-of-contents

it should work with any current version of scribus (except 1.4.x of course! that's not current!).

i still really think that the current TOC tool should be removed from scribus and replaced by one that is based on styles, but at least, now, there is a solution for creating a TOC in Scribus!

it does not cover all possible table of contents, but i hope that it can allow people to create (a bit more than) basic table of contents with scribus!

According to the bug reporting website my issue has been fixed in version 1.5.9.

works great, make sure you are not in a different layer or in view mode

Beginner Talk / is editing text from main page disabled in 1.5.8??

im trying to edit text directly on the frame but im not being able, i already checked the wiki and the solutions i found are not working for me

i tried double clicking as it used to be, presing C does nothing, presing E pops up the story editor...

is this feature disabled on 1.5.8???

I had a similar problem, it was vodoo to me but if I ungrouped the contents it would export the image file.

It would be nice if some of the pre-press stuff was available like crop marks was available in the export but could just do stuff like that with a pdf,  pdftopng would get me there.
