hi pierruel

what exactly is your problem?
you may need a special character style for the greek part. otherwise it should just work...

Last post by pierruel - April 29, 2024, 05:43:48 PM
Good evening,
I have to introduce in a Scribus document the following "mixed" sentence:
C'est bien, persévère, μουσικὴν ποίει καὶ ἐργάζου, comme le songe disait à Socrate.
or
It is good, persevere, μουσικὴν ποίει καὶ ἐργάζου, as the dream said to Socrates.

Is it possible to introduce such a greek quote into a "latin" text ?
How should it be done ?
Thank you in advance.
Best regards
pierruel

Scripts and Plugins / DirectImageImport Script Modul...
Last post by srikrishnan - April 29, 2024, 09:19:46 AM
Hi all,

I am using scribus 1.6.1. In this i have following Python version:

3.8.18 (default, Aug 25 2023, 21:10:31) [MSC v.1900 64 bit (AMD64)]

i tried to run "DirectImageImport" script from Script menu. I have encountered below error:

---------------------------
PIL
---------------------------
Unable to import the Python Imaging Library module.
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------

in my windows 10 system, i have installed following version python:

Python 3.11.4 (tags/v3.11.4:d2340ef, Jun  7 2023, 05:45:37) [MSC v.1934 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32

I tried to install all modules in my system python and for testing purpose I tried to copy those modules into "C:\Program Files\Scribus 1.6.1\python\lib\site-packages". sorry, i may be wrong, i tried this because in past one other simple module i copied and it works in scribus. Please help me to fix this issue.

regards,
Srikrishnan

I've spent some hours fiddling with psnup and I can't make an output on one page. Something wrong with my command, or I should input ps not pdf? Will try some more. Pdf Tweak didn't run, java issue.
psnup -c -q -h37.74cm -h25cm -3 cover.pdf cover1.pdf
However, a work around in Scribus, I calculated my book cover total width (fr+bk+spine) and made a new one page doc of exact dimensions, then selected all objects from my original three page spread and pasted onto new doc -fits exactly.

But I have to say, a 3-page spread is much better to work with as it then gives margins for front/back near spine and also boundary of the spine. Adjusting spine width is also a doddle, and the front page just shifts to the left or right.

The title of that column is "Rejected Fonts" and the list gives error messages. I suspect you are using Scribus in another interface language and we can get a better translation for that data.

I found the solution!

I stop using Scribus - the icon size is embarrassingly small on my 4k+ monitor anyway :-).

Thanks for your help,

e.

Well, the fonts work fine in GIMP etc. and they are recognized by Scribus (and displayed correctly in the "Never should be shown" list, so that suggests there's nothing wrong with the fonts in Linux?

But, thanks for the suggestion.
