Hi utnik,
Sorry for the delay; I wasn't notified of an answer to my question. Thank you for answering.
I'm sorry I'm far from fluent in English neither writing nor reading.
I wrote on this forum the text I was willing to insert into Scribus using my latin, then greek keyboards, like this:
"C'est bien, persévère, μουσικὴν ποίει καὶ ἐργάζου, comme le songe disait à Socrate."
but it doesn't work inside Scribus. The 23 greek letters are replaced by empty squares.
I suppose that I should download a greek typeface into Scribus but I have no idea, how it can be done. Could you explain ? Many thanks in advance.

there is a space in the path, you prolly need quotes around that path

Image Editor Problem ......

I have Scribus 1.6.1 installed on my Linux Mint 21.3 machine, and loving it!

I also am running Wine with Photoshop 7 installed in it, but I cannot figure out how to properly set up the External Tools image editor in Scribus to actually run the Wine installation of Photoshop as my Scribus image editor.

No matter what syntax I use, I can't get it to work.

Can anyone tell me what the "Name of Executable" should be in the External Tools image editor to run my Photoshop that's in Wine? I have tried "/home/MyUserName/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Adobe/Photoshop 7.0/Photoshop.exe" - it didn't work.

However, if I directly click on the Photoshop.exe file in this directory, Photoshop opens fine....

Any suggestions would be welcome.

I apologize for the thread necromancy, but I am experiencing the same issues, but this time when importing Markdown into a Text Frame. I cannot seem to delete the red ampersand character, and it is creating what seems to be a bullet point in the text.

Not registration black - 4x100% ink.
It is a rich black for extra black offset printing.
I have also tried to import individual pdfs as curves (loosing all text) in Scribus and it looks fine, but I have not tested it in Acrobat.

hi admfubar

i think this function is missing (and might be handy in some cases...)

Recently upgraded to openSUSE 15.6, and started a fresh kde settings, have many years of kruft built up in my settings.
Now with a clean set of settings in kde, kvantum works nicely. Thought i'd share another shot of scribus using another kvantum theme.

I want to make sure there isn't a straightforward way of doing this that i am missing. Is there a simple way of doing this?  I've figured out a work around, it requires a few steps, but I was hoping for something simple.

If not this it candidate for and additional feature to scribus.

Master pages in Scribus are essentially "page backgrounds".

If you want page templates, have a look at the scrapbook.
General Discussion / Master Page, not editable
Last post by rethus - May 10, 2024, 01:14:20 PM
I have create a document which contain 2 sample pages, Landscape, and Portrait.
They also contain a given Text-Box-Structure I need for any new page.

If I add a page and use "Add Master-Page" from Mouse-Context-Menu, the page appear (with all it's textboxes), but I can not edit those Textboxes on the new page.

Why is that?

If I loog into the Layers Section, there is anything open to edit (means the Column with LOCK isn't activated).

Any suggestions how to fix this?
