##### Text and Typography / Re: Trouble setting default type size in 1.5.0
« Last post by Nermander on November 23, 2022, 01:18:28 pm »
If I recall correct Preferences only affects new documents, to affect the current document you need to use Document setup.

https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Help:Manual_Configprefs

You should probably use styles instead of setting the default for text frames (because I think the default is only applied when the frame is created, so if you change the default already created frames will not be affected).

But I just tried here in 1.5.2 (closest version to 1.5.0 I have installed) and there is maybe a bug (version 1.5.0 is old). Even when changing the default for the text frame tool there was no change to a newly created text frame.

##### Text and Typography / Trouble setting default type size in 1.5.0
« Last post by richmondscribe on November 23, 2022, 12:43:39 am »
I use 1.5.0 because I'm running OS 10.11.6.  When I go to preferences and set the default typeface and type size it will not stay at the size I put in (12pt) but reverts to 11pt.  I have ot manually select and resize almost every other new line I type.  Am I doing something incorrectly?  BTW, I'm a former InDesign user so I'm having to relearn quite a bit!

##### Scripts and Plugins / Re: How to import LaTeX package?
« Last post by legoaddict1949 on November 22, 2022, 02:42:13 pm »
Just figured it out. In the source editor there is a "Fonts/Headers" tab. There you can place package import headers.

##### Scripts and Plugins / How to import LaTeX package?
« Last post by legoaddict1949 on November 22, 2022, 02:40:17 pm »
Greetings.

The Scribus wiki states the following:

Quote
Just type your LaTeX code, but remember: The preamble and the end is added automatically during processing. So only add the parts between \begin{document} and \end{document}

If this is the case, how am I supposed to import additional LaTeX packages, given that these are normally called before the document begins?

I tried placing \usepackage{chemfig} in the LaTeX input, but that obviously resulted in a compilation error.

I've also tried using the \chemfig{} command without importing the package, but that obviously doesn't work either.

Thank you in advance for any help, and God bless.

Most PDF viewers have the option for bookled printing. Even som printer drivers have support for it.

There are also other software out there that can turn a PDF into something suitable for booklet printing.

Scribus does not have support for it, so you need to solve it after having created your PDF.

##### Layout Issues / Re: Words on top line in a frame breaking when using automatic line spacing
« Last post by Nermander on November 19, 2022, 08:35:04 am »
Is "first line offset" when you indent the first line of a paragraph?

No, first line offset is how far from the top of the frame the first line is. Or rather much is added to the line height (when first line offset is zero, the baseline of the first line is line height down from the top).

What what is "font ascent?"
As far as I understand it is a font metric, it is the defined height of the font.

I did a quick google and this article has a picture that I think explains it well (though the article is not related to Scribus).

I think the best solution here depends on how you intend to print the magazine.

While splitting the image across two pages may work, the final result will depend on the impositioning for the printing spreads.

##### Beginner Talk / Image frame space before and after
« Last post by Ulsinus on November 18, 2022, 04:40:55 pm »
I am new to Scribus

I wish to add a space before and after an image frame box only. Not to the left or right sides.

I'm using Scribus 1.5.8.
I'm using Catalina 10.15.7 on a Mac powerbook

I've found the properties box.
I've found the shapes box.
I've ticked 'Edit contour line' in the Nodes panel.

I am offered the choice of 'Enlarge the size of the path by the shown value'.

Am I in the right place? Is this the correct work flow?

Grateful to receive guidance and help from forum members.
