I'm working with the calendar script. It generated a great calendar. I'm trying to get the date to appear higher in the text box. Apparently that is Vertical Alignment.
So I look at Style Manager. I see Par_Style_Date, based on Char_Style_Date. I found instructions to  find: "Text Properties; Click on Column & Text Distances; On the first line, change Vertical Alignment".
But I don't find that. Have these menus changed since that was posted?

Under par_style_Date / Properties / Tabs and Indentation
I was able to indent to the right a little.
Still looking for how to move the number toward the top of the cell.

Excuse me for appending my message to this really old discussion.

I'm using Scribus 1.5.8.

Let's consider a Scribus document containing some pages of text, then we want to add a multipages PDF.

As written above, if you select "File > Import > Load vector file", the dialog allows to load just one single page of the PDF.

I use a workarond:
- File > Open
- Select PDF file to load
- then in a new scribus window we will have our PDF
- here I select all pages of this document and press Ctrl+C to copy them
- finally return on the previous scribus window and press Ctrl+V to paste the "vector pages"

My question:
- is there a easier way to achieve that?

I would expect that File > Import > Load vector file can directly import also multi pages PDF, not just one page at a time. Likely implementing this feature in Scribus is not as easy as it seems...

Thank you! I found char_style_date and changed that to a smaller number. That's great, it is a smaller font number and I change center to left justified. How can I pad that a little, so it's a bit further from the left boundary. And how do I make the number closer to the top of the box?

I installed Scribus and began working with the Monthly-calendar-script-for-Scribus which I got at

I love that it automatically generates multiple monthly calendars. The multiple pages option is an improvement over Inkscape, for this project.

I want to make a calendar which has small numbers and leaves more room for me to add the events which will be happening that day. Maybe 3-4 different events will be running Mon-Weds or Mon-Fri, with different events on the weekends.

So far, this calendar seems to make a more "hang on the wall, each month with basic holidays and a nice image" type calendar. I chose to generate the calendars with no image.

How can I make the day numbers smaller. I don't see that in the menu options. I select font, but not font size.

If the above is not possible, I could manually change the number size, but since I'm new to Scribus, I'm having difficulty doing that. I deleted the "1" in day 1. I added a text box, I found the Properties menu box, but I can't get rid of the surrounding box. Anyway, this would get very tedious to do for 6 months.

The built-in Scripts / Calendar Wizard seems to give good results. How do I create a version with no image, and with that space filled by the calendar? When I un-select Draw Image Frame that space is just a blank space where an image would go.

Quote from: Fran_iii on May 11, 2023, 03:48:55 PMThanks for the info, and thanks to the developers.
I wonder what it takes to change "the development" version to become"stable"?

If the reported bug volume drops or seriousness of issues drops, preferably to zero, or features being worked on are completed, then that's a good indication to us. We've worked on 1.5.x for years and always tried to maintain a lot of stability vs major breakage. Its ready to replace 1.4.8, just a few more things to go in to fix some outstanding issues and we're done.

I've noticed that the gap is not well defined for a lot of sentence and I wanted to automate all my changes (There are more than 200 pages  :o ) I've got an idea for a "for loop" but... I can't find how can I change this gap parameter ?  ???

I've been there :

But did'nt found out  :'(

thanks for your help !

---- EDIT -----

Just found that we could open a .sla with a text editor, I could replace :

in all the document, no need for a script.

Thanks and sorry for the disturb !  :D

There is usually a roadmap for what features are going to be implemented, and once those are stable enough a new stable version is released.

The reason that these features are not backported to the stable tree is usually that they depend on a new version of a framework that is implemented in the development version.
