There are two options.

1. The manual option. Create a 2-page 8.5" x 11" landscape document and use guides to place the contents. This is the easy way.

2. Create a 4-page 5.5" x 8.5" document, export to PDF and use some kind of impositioning solution (I guess in this case booklet printing is easiest) to turn it into a sheet that can be folded.

Note that the second option may be more difficult if you want contents spanning over the fold. I am not sure all booklet printing options print to scale, maybe they scale down the pages to fit.

Also, in both cases, the biggest challenge may be to have the printer flip the back page in the right direction. This may require some trial and error.

Update: I created a new blank documentation.

Now, the source code is hosted on Codeberg
But the automation works in the same way as with GitHub.
Text and Typography / Re: Odt import - Paragraph sty...

I have seen the exact behavior described here for .odt and .docx files. I tested on both Windows 10 and Linux.

I used version 1.4.x for many years, and .odt files imported nicely, with paragraph styles correctly associated with the text. Unused styles were not added to the Scribus file.

Now I'm trying to use 1.6.2, and find importing .odt files unusable. Is there any chance the Open Document import can be restored to its 1.4.7 functionality, or at least work as well as the DOCX import?

I see a similar question from January ("Import text with style, but only the used styles'), but do not see if it resulted in any change.

[This is my first post. I joined the forum to see if there is a fix to this problem, and was pleased to see someone else shares my experience.]

Hi ale,

honestly, I didn't really check the license. Big mistake from my side. I guess to use the current documentation as a foundation is not the best idea.

In the next days, I can set up a new empty documentation project and connect this with Read The Docs. Also, I want to see how others can contribute easily.

Do you mean this manual?

Beginner Talk / [SOLVED] How to create 4 page ...

New to Scribus and can't figure out how to make a small brochure. I want to print on both sides of one sheet of 8.5" x 11" paper, then fold it in half to create a 4 page brochure (5.5"w x 8.5"h). It will show the first page on the right, then pages 2-3 inside the fold, and page 4 on the back. This means on one side of the sheet I'll have pages 2 & 3, and on the other side I'll have pages 4 & 1.

I've tried all possibilities I can think of but can't figure this out. HELP!!!

Quote from: a.l.e on June 26, 2024, 04:34:44 PMThis should have been fixed in Scribus 1.6.2:


p.s.: i've now tested it with 1.6.2 and it (somehow*) works

* i'd wish it would work differently, but as it is now, it seems to work ok with most sane usages...

p.p.s.: it was correctly with up to 9 items... if you have more, it might or not be ok, depending on the result you're looking for.

Hi, thank you. My problem is that I have many items and it all goes wrong when the list goes from number 9 to number 10 :(
But thank you anyway

Hi! Sorry it's a little bit late but I hope you will get my reply: Is it possible to know how to access the functionality you developed?
