Oops, meant ctrl-drag. Anyway I noticed that when editing the polygon shape after text to path, it is now a line with start end points. So the better question should be, how would one move the start point of a polygon shape?
As when you draw a polygon box the start is always top left it seems??

Ok, a quick work round, that achieves the result that I need in this case, I rotated the polygon 'box' by 270 deg, which made it long, and then resized it by clicking shape edit and shift-dragging corners to become tall to fill the page margin.

But this is not a work around for any unusual shapes that can't bi rotated,  obviously.

Ps, I am not enjoying the post verification with letters that ark hidden and obscured and then my post fails because I got it wrong!

Last post by Orbspider - Today at 07:50:31 AM
Hi, I have some text around a polygon, using 'attach text to path'. The polygon is basically a frame near margin of Page, on a book cover. At the moment the default start point of text is at top left of the said box. But I need it to move over to the top right corner.

Any tricks to accomplish this? I would expect there to bi an anchor handle that can bi dragged around the path/shape.

Ps, captcha was a horrible pain during sign up with blurry images!

Oh no! More blurry letters bellow that I can't read!

I took a look and it seems many of the images there are not stored on the forum, but linked from external sites (you can see this if you try to quote the post).

But there is at least one "[attachment deleted by admin]".

Pictures for example work in this post

PDF Generation / Re: Pages have a white line

There are dozens of solutions for impositioning PDFs.

I've wanted to update my impositioning scripts to work with PDFs, but I have not found a drop in PDF replacement for pstops (but I have to confess it's been ages since I looked into it and I don't remember what the issues were).

After some more investigation, it appears that this is happening when attempting to imposition pages as spreads. It's a crying shame that Scribus can't do this, because there don't seem to be an reasonable open source solutions to do it afterwards. As more and more PDFs are for online consumption rather than physical printing, I think the arguments for this not being in Scribus become weaker.

I found a way, just double click on the image. you will notice a kind of cross symbol on the image and you can move it. Now I need only to find a way of how scale and rotate the image. This should also be possible according to the video I referred to b4.
