Beginner Talk / Re: Creating lines for answers in a workbook
« Last post by utnik on August 18, 2021, 12:42:44 pm »
hi ewac

you should use 'patterns' for your lines.
  • create a set of your lines (or just the baseline, if you like) and a rectangle (or vertical line) without a color to define the vertical distance between your lines
  • select the line set and the rectangle
  • with'item' → 'send to' → 'patterns' you make it available in 'properties' → 'colors' → 'fill' for your whole document.
if you need the same patterns in different documents, i would consider to create a template with them…

Beginner Talk / Creating lines for answers in a workbook
« Last post by Ewac on August 18, 2021, 08:46:35 am »
Hello,
I am going to make a workbook, in which the reader is supposed to write the answers to the questions on the respective lines in the workbook. I am looking for the best option to create these lines and I haven't found anyone talking about this so far.
I did a similar project before and ended up creating a seperate character style that is underlined and put lot's of spaces to create the lines. But it wasn't a very smooth solution I thought there should be a better way to do it. I will have more workbook projects in the future and would appreciate any help to find a good way to do this.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi mnawij,

yes, I came across that webpage before I opened this thread. I managed to install icc profiles from other sources including my own generated monitor profiles with that manual.
Probably you are right, their profiles must differ in any way from the standard. But I am out of ideas. This thread is pretty quiet and the Saal support is not useful (use PhotoShop, wtf?!).
I even considered to convert the .icc from the current format to a different format as I have done with JPEG or PDF in the past to circumvent compatibility issues. But I lack knowledge how to do that.

Probably I have to go without softproof of any kind which is a bit sad. As Linux and open source user, PhotoShop isn't an option for me...

Hi Bogo75, straight from color.org

The purpose of the ICC is to promote the use and adoption of open, vendor-neutral, cross-platform color management systems.
The ICC encourages vendors to support the ICC profile format and the workflows required to use ICC profiles.
The v4 ICC specification is widely used and is referred to in many International and other de-facto standards. It was first approved as an International Standard, ISO 15076-1, in 2005 and revised in 2010.

If their profile does not work it could be due to not matching the ICC standard correctly, if it does it should have no problem.

Have you looked at:  https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Getting_and_installing_ICC_profiles

FYI: I've asked the support of Saal Digital. They told me, their color profiles are not compatible with Scribus softproof. They recommend using PhotoShop.

Nice idea, I thought I had tried that without success.

User Interface / File selection dialog box always reverts to small size
« Last post by peterfreeth on August 16, 2021, 08:33:32 pm »
Hello all.

Scribus Version 1.5.7.svn on Ubuntu 21.04 - but this is the case with any current version of Scribus e.g. 1.4.6

When I open a file or select an image to insert into an image frame, a file chooser dialog opens as you would expect. The size is always tiny, with a very small area showing file names, and always in a 'thumbnail' type of layout with file names going across and down. I can see only 10 file names at a time, which makes it very difficult to select the image file that I need. I can resize the box, change the layout, and next time I select an image, it's back to the tiny size.

I think that this has always been a problem with Scribus, but it's only starting to irritate me now as I am putting a photo book together, using hundreds of images. I imagine that for people doing mainly image work such as magazines, children's books and photo albums, this would make Scribus pretty much unusable.

It doesn't seem to be a Qt issue, the people on the Qt forum says that the dialog looks Scribus specific.

What can I do to change this, so that Scribus remembers the last dialog layout and size that I used?

Linux / Re: Installing Scribus 1.5.x on raspberry pi (Raspberry Pi OS)

So I have solved the problem by using a Flatpak from flathub.org. It doesn't load when I click on the desktop shortcut, but it loads if I use the terminal. I successfully managed to open up one of my documents from 1.5.x. Now I just need to install the necessary fonts.
:)
If you have any suggestions about the shortcut issue or you think there is a better alternative, let me know.
Hopefully this will help someone!
How do I mark this as solved?
