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?

I had not noticed that. In fact, all the PDF output from Musescore has registration black instead of K black.  :'(

Hi-res pngs work fine, of course (they are large); have still not tried what Scribus does with MuseScore's SVGs, which are quite heavy as well.
Unfortunately, these are all workarounds which do not allow me to keep text searchable.

Beginner Talk / Table of Content
Last post by tobiascock - May 06, 2024, 01:42:03 PM
Hello everyone,

I'm relatively new to Scribus and have encountered a challenge regarding the Table of Contents feature.

I've successfully created a TOC using text frames with attributes. However, I've run into an issue when attempting to add these text frames with attributes as inline objects inside another text frame. Unfortunately, when I do this, the headers are no longer displayed in the TOC.

My intention behind inserting the text frames as inline objects is to create a document that behaves more like a Word document. I'm linking multiple text frames across different pages, ensuring that if an inline object (the text frame with the header text and TOC attribute) is pushed down to the next page, the TOC updates automatically with the correct page number.

My question is: Is it possible to achieve this functionality with Scribus? Any insights or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

probably, the "problem" is that you have activated the baseline grid, which forces the text to align to it.

if you really want a space after that paragraph you need to:

- disable the alignment to the baseline grid for the next paragraph, or
- define a space below that is a multiple of the baseline grid

depending on the reasons why you choose to activate the baseline grid, you might want to mark the new paragraphs with an indent rather than a space above.

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

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.
