Beginner Talk / Background image on all pages
« Last post by StephanP on May 04, 2022, 04:51:35 pm »
What's the best way to apply a background image to all (80) pages?
I've got 4 different page templates.
Should I insert the same image on all 4 page templates at the lowest level?

            x              (x)                    The object would have to be external to your document, such as a image or say a pdf that is placed on the master/template.The external file would be updated to make the change occur across your document(s).

I am looking for a good template in A5 size.
Can you share your "jaktdebatt"?

Hi,

I'm thinking about making a playing cards. I want several cards at my page and I want all of them look the same. Obviously if i'm about to change some details in single card, I want it to be automatically updated in all cards.

In other words: is it possible to create several INSTANCES of THE SAME object, so when I change it at one place it automatically change everywhere?

I could also have my card template as master page and just add new cards as new pages, but that will make printing it impossible, right?

Best regards

hi sap

…Maybe it's actually the contour line I'm using ? My software is in French so I have no idea what's the term in English…

in your french setting you should check 'modifier le contour'

hi sap

your video is marked as private – no access for me!

when you edit the outline and your image is set to fit the frame size, i would expect the image to change its size as well.
…but there seems to be a bug as the changes won't display before you reload the document. (not even after 'extras' → 'update document') – you could file a bug report.

for the text flow you should rather use the contour line than the outline of the frame. (in the edit window you can check the box 'edit contour line'…) this would keeb the image as it is and only affect the text flow.

Hi! Thanks for letting me know, I changed the video settings to make it unlisted. Maybe it's actually the contour line I'm using ? My software is in French so I have no idea what's the term in English (and I can't find scribus-centered forums in French)

My fiance works in IT so he somewhat guided me to making a bug report, I hope what I posted there was useful.

Maybe now with the video it will make more sense ?

Thanks again!!

Hi all

I previously made a post on another part of the forum but I felt bad misplacing my post so I'm making a new one here. Hope that's alright.

I have an issue with my images changing size sometimes when I close and then open a file. It seems to happen mostly on images that I change outline of and/or are outside of margins. It's more likely to happen when I change the bottom part of their outline rather than the sides or top. I've experimented a bit to draw to these conclusions - but that doesn't help me understand what causes it and how to fix it... I made a recording of the process so you guys can have a better understandong of what I'm dealing with.

Also, my Scribus is in French, so excuse my French (literally)
