Thank you utnik, but it is not as simple as it seems (to me at least).
I don't know what is my standard font directory: I trigged FreeCommander and found (probably) more than 200 folders called "Fonts". I checked 2 or 3 of them but these ones don't include the greek alphabet.
Neverthless when I switch my keyboard from French to Greek I can type greek text without any difficulty. So I'm sure that there is a greek font somewhere inside my computer (but if I import such a text into Scribus, the greek characters are replaced with squares as already said).
So if I want to duplicate a greek alphabet into Scribus Directory as you suggest, I'll have to open and study the contents of more than 200 fonts folders. I supposed than there is, inside Scribus, a functionality or a tool which is able to recognise in my computer the Font of Fonts folder(s) containing a greek font usable within Scribus but I didn't find it. Who can ? I'm surely not the first Scribus user needing to insert a greek quote into a French, English or German text, am I ? How could I ask one of the conceptors of Scribus ?
Thank you for any track.
Best regards

can you please open a ticket with the link to the font and a description of the issue?


i'm not sure that scribus currently supports variable fonts (on my computer, with the latest code, i see the same issue as you), but:

- having a ticket will document the status
- will give a good example of what could be supported

Thanks - I've checked and there's nothing in that tab.

I'm using Scribus 1.6.1 on Windows 10 Pro.

I have that font installed on my system. Scribus shows all the weights you want. Have you checked for rejected fonts? (preferences/fonts rejected font tab)
those weights may have errors that cause them not to show.

Also helpful, what os & version are you using?

Yes, registration black is usually 100% of all 4 colors, because you want the registration marks to show on all 4 plates. That is kind of the whole point of the registration marks.

Hi all,
very new to Scribus but can't find an answer to this anywhere online.
I have a bunch of variable fonts (OpenType) that I'd like to use. But Scribus is only showing them in the thinnest weight. E.g. I'd like to use Source Sans 3 in 400/Regular and 600/Semibold, but all it's showing me is 200/Extralight.

I'm using the Content Properties window on my text frame, but I've also gone into File > Preferences > Fonts. I've tried adding the fonts again through Additional Paths there, but no joy. And I've checked the list; the only fonts it lists for Source Sans are Extralight and Extralight Italic.

The same issue is coming up for every 2-axis variable font I have; e.g. Montserrat only shows up in Thin and Thin Italic. I think the issue is that it's only reading along one axis, the italics; for variable fonts without an italics option I'm getting the thickness variations fine.

Anyway. If anyone can show me how to use regular old Source Sans 3, I'd be very grateful!

Isn't registration the sum of 100% inks that can be used (in this case C100%+ M100% + Y100% + K100% ?)
In any case, do you think I should report this to the MuseScore developers? In my opinion it should be treated merely as K100%, just as typical black text from word processing /desktop publishing software. But again, I am no expert in printing processes, so feel free to correct me.

As for my initial question, I seem to understand that there is no straightforward solution to my problem - I can achieve what I need only with workarounds, at the expense of file size and/or searchable text, correct?

hi pierruel

yes. you need a greek font (or a font with greek characters...)
you may install the font in your standard font directory or just place it in the same directory as the .sla file is stored.

I don't use wine
if it's similar to the flatpaks maybe something like
"wine start /home/MyUserName/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Adobe/Photoshop 7.0/Photoshop.exe"
