hi joeyeti

i'm not sure if scribus is the optimal tool for your needs. but if you decide that it is, a script to extract the text might be useful.

Hi guys,

I am often translating various texts/pdfs/rulebooks etc. and I am using a CAT tool for translation, which can conveniently import for instance Word, TXT, RTF, HTML or XML, by "stripping" the non-text content and only giving me the text for translation.

Is this somehow possible with Scribus? I know *.sla files are essentially XML, but it might not be "pure" XML, or?

Subsequently, is it possible to use external text in Scribus, imported into text frames from separate files? How limited is this functionality (as I imagine any formatting is done in Scribus, so getting text imported means no automated formatting is done)?

Thanks for your reply - It made me rethink and track down "the bug"

The sample I uploaded works fine when i reopen it - also in verdena font - strange

But another scribus file I got continued to have "the error" (I have now uploaded that too Sample 2 Bullet Wrong.sla )

But changing the text to another font made it behave fine - and more important changing it back to "Verdena" it also looks fine. At last I found out that the bullet was in another font than verdena and that caused the misbehavior/trouble

hi t-buch

does this happen with every font?
my short test didn't show this problem. (i only tested with 'linux biolinum' on macos and scribus 1.5.8.)

Scompaiono diverse parti del documento ad ogni creazione del PDF o sono sempre le stesse?

Hai tante immagini o un testo incatenato molto lungo?
(ev. problemi di memoria...)

Il documento o le immagini sono su un disco remoto?
(le risorse scompaiono e riappaiono durante la creazione del pdf...)

Credo che servano un po' più di dettagli sul tuo documento... o, ancora meglio, tutti i dati "collected for output" (nessun'idea come si chiami il comando in italiano...)

(per informazione: nel caso di Scribus, desinstallare e reinstallare, non risolve quasi nessun problema)

Don't know if its an error

I am using Danish letters like the "Å" or "å" - When trying to convert the normal "highlighted text" (More precisely: The setting: colored background) (see the green circle on the added picture) to a bulleted list in the "Paragraph Effects", the "Highlighted" shifts (wrongly) (see the red circle), so  the little "bun" above the "å" is no longer highlighted

Can i find a way out of that?

Ciao a tutti! Ho creato un giornale con scribus ma quando provo ad esportare in pdf mi mancano dei pezzi. Ho provato varie volte e succede che manca una foto oppure casella di testo.  Ho provato a disinstallare e reinstallare ma non succede nulla. Come posso risolvere questo problema? Grazie
