Beginner Talk / [SOLVED] Setting paragraph bre...
Last post by debbieV - May 06, 2024, 09:12:52 AM
Hi
Very new to Scribus (version 1.4.7) and I am having trouble with getting a style correct. Don't seem to be able to get a narrow break between paragraphs. Not matter if I even type in a 0.50 it is still a large one.

Am I missing something?? ;D

Also, when I move a text frame it sometimes puts a space at the top even though I don't have a space set in the style its when I adjust the height etc

For start in "A5 Venite fedeli (Stefani-Wade) (accordi).pdf" colors are wrong.
They should be 100% Black - they are 300% mixture of CMYK.
In booklet every page with notes have same mistake.
Pages made in Scribus are fine, 100% Black as they should be.

Does all text have to be searchable?

Below is pdf converted to grayscale

If I am not wrong, a PDF can be added to a Scribus document in different ways. Did you try to import the PDF into an image frame?

Because I think otherwise the contents of the PDF is imported as individual objects.

But I am not sure if importing it to an image frame causes it to be rasterized.

I tried it, the pdf imported/opened as a vector graphic. I looked OK but all the text was outlined and you couldn't used a text search on it. I think that's the end goal here for the op, text searching the exported pdf after it's assembled in scribus.

Pdf is container for everything (and anything).
Have you tried to export in svg format, or even png in high resolution - grayscale 450dpi for example?

I wrote all the lyrics in MuseScore so that I would'nt have to do more editing in a separate program. One of the basic principles behind it was 1 page = 1 (or more) songs, sometimes 1 spread = 1 song. No page turning during performances. All those files have been written in a couple of years (which means that it would be quite time consuming to remove and then rewrite and redo the layout for all the lyrics), and were used and printed individually.

All I really wanted to do was put together the individual sheets, combine 2 or 3 songs on the same page where this is possible, number them and add introductions and indexes.

Installation and Setup / Scribus 1.6.1 high CPU and fre...

As it says in the title. When I right click in Scribus, it freezes and becomes unresponsive, and when I open `btop` (or htop) I see it use up 100% of the CPU.

I'm using the Scribus AppImage, and attempts to reproduce this on the Flatpak do not cause this freezing. Of note is that at this point Scribus has been running for around three-ish hours.

it looks to me like everything gets put into a separate frame and the musical notes are combinations of characters
preserving the text in an editable, searchable form looks like it will be very very difficult and time-consuming

idea, import the music parts as vectors and the cut and past from your MuseScore program for the text?

MuseScore supports export in PDF, SVG, PNG, MusicXML and MEI. However, MusicXML, while XML based is more of an interchange format for interoperability with other music notation software, and is not quite reliable in layout preservation.

Can Music Score export in other formats? Like HTML perhaps?
