1.4.6 is a very old version.

Try 1.6.2

I noticed though that when googling for "scribus download" you end up on an old wiki page saying 1.4.6 is the latest version....

Hi, I just installed Scribus 1.4.6 on my PC running Windows 11 Pro. I also installed  Ghostscript, after downloading it from their website. When I try to open a .eps file, I get the message: "Importing filename.eps failed!" Please advise as to what I should do to get the file to open in Scribus. Thanks in advance.

Thanks. The left-most button tells me that text flow is disabled. I've selected the image frame which is in the middle of some text.

Beginner Talk / Flowing text around an image
Last post by Leon_Heller - July 04, 2024, 01:17:18 PM
According to the Wiki I should:

Select the "Use contour line" option, and the text should wrap around your object. You may realize that there's no margin between the object and the text. This can be adjusted by selecting the object and, on the "Shape" tab, clicking on "Edit".

Where the **** do I find the "Use contour line" option?

AdmFubar: have you had a look at them?

If you find one that you think is useful for us, please post the link in here, with ideas on how to use it.

To me the biggest issue is, that we want new users to show up and directly ask questions (and possibly show us what the problem is with sample images and documents).
On the other side, the current users are very reactive and replies show up in a matter of minutes.

Also, it might be interesting to notice that most spam comes from "random" email addresses and ip addresses (banning / filtering them does not really help much).

From what I can tell, most of the mods simply forbid things or are based on rules on email / ip address.
Which is not really what we need / want.
