Beginner Talk / Re: Frames under titles
Last post by PatJr - February 21, 2024, 03:27:22 PM
dunno what you mean by automatic?

one way, if you get a sample set up they way you like you can

A) trun the page into a master page and then reuse it as needed
B) put a copy of the page or elements into a scrapbook folder and use as needed, I don't think the scrapbook will bring the style with it into a new document so I would have to test that

Beginner Talk / Frames under titles
Last post by Gas - February 21, 2024, 01:25:42 PM
My "need": based on title style tags (H1, H2), automatically set a text frame and a background picture, with proper spacing.
I doubt it's feasible, but asking cost nothing :D.

User Interface / Re: Improve the nodes editing
Last post by tom - February 21, 2024, 08:16:21 AM
- Conversion of nodes from corner to others should auto-relocate the control points immediately.
- Moving multiple nodes should be possible.

The PDF exported from Scribus is the only one I have ever had problems with. The Mint document reader is the default and comes with every installation of Mint  and is very stable, as does the full open source office program LibreOffice. My downloaded file is 21.7MB and therefore probably too large to be uploaded to the forum. (Also I would not know how to do that.) It is available from the Mint download page here (You must look for the Writer Guide there) :-

Linux Mint 7.3 Cinnamon

I suspect however you would rather look at my downloaded version rather than download your own. However I do not think my file will be of much use. It opens quite correctly, I can print any part of it I want, isolate any page I want and view all the properties. I can make as many copies as I want an load them on any of my other machines so I do not see that there is a problem with the file.

All of this started out with me wanting a large document that I could use to practice and learn about bookbinding. I struck the pagination problem and thanks to the help I have received from this forum I have solved the issue I was having. On my other forums I can usually amend the topic heading as [SOLVED] to enable others to quickly see that there might be a solution to their problem contained within. I cannot see such a facility on the Scribus forum. Is there one please?

If you have a way to share the PDF, others could test it on their machines if thats the only machine and only operating system you have. I suspect the PDF reader as exporting in order or out of order should not matter. We should confirm your document is not otherwise surfacing a problem, because we have not seen issues with out of order exports in the past.

Quote from: bigal on February 20, 2024, 12:03:00 PMAs an experiment I used Scribus to open a 124 page PDF document. I know that my desktop machine is fairly old  but never the less it took over 20 minutes to load.
What are the specs of your machine, cpu type, clock speed, and amount of ram, plus the harddrive(s) specs?
