hey

i have now created a script that searches the current document for the first item that has the given color for its fill or stroke:

https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-script-repository/tree/master/search_by_color

sadly, scribus cannot yet get the color name for items that are inside of a group.

so, if you think that the shape you're looking for is inside of an imported svg, you will need to first ungroup the drawing.

Have you looked in the  "Outline" window?  If you dont have it opened  yet,  from the main menu select Windows/Outline, it is about the 7th entry down. This will show all objects in your document. You should be able to find this allusive  svg that way.

Hi AdmFubar Thanks for your reply.

I am trying to "Remove unused colours" from a file. But the supposed unused colours still appear in the colour palette.
So I guess they are applied to some object that I can't find.
That elusive object is an SVG imported from Inkscape (since the names of the colours I can't remove are, for example, "FromSVG#3b7d9f").

I thought I could find that object by searching by the colours I couldn't remove.
That's the reason for the original question.

Not one that is built in, you would have to script it.
What situation/use case are you trying to resolve? More details perhaps we can come up with an alternative.

Scribus has a long way to go to be on feature par with with the likes of indesign, or even affinity.

I mean, is there a way to ask Scribus to select all the elements that have a certain colour?

can't you make a paragraph style that will do what you want?

Yes, certainly. But what I would like is to avoid having to set a new paragraph style when I have to make a small space adjustment before or after...
A specific command to increase or decrease the space before or after a paragraph is present in InDesign and QuarkXpress or even in LibreOffice Writer.

Merci pour la réponse j'ai réussi l'ouvrir à nouveau. En fait la page était planquée je ne sais où mais invisible sur l'écran. J'ai fait clic droit sur la page blanche dans la barre des tâches avec une option ancrer à gauche (ou  agrandir ou restaurer je ne sais plus!).
