Layout Issues / Re: Baseline grid creates weird spaces

Thank you so much for your effort. I tried it and it really only occurs with the capital Umlaut in this particular font. Will report the bug. Thanks!

Beginner Talk / Re: Linked text boxes: text re-starts from beginning
« Last post by Katewerk on December 21, 2021, 06:38:29 pm »
I am observing an unexpected behavior in version 1.5.6.1

I have three pages, each page contains a text box, and all these text boxes are linked to each other so that a long multi-paragraph text overflows from page 1 to page 2 to page 3. And it works great.

Then I add an image box to page 2 and configure it so that text flows around the shape of this box. And it works fine to - text on page 2 flows around the image as expected.

Then strange things begin to happen. If I make the image on page 2 big enough to displace the text from page 2 entirely, the text on page 3 restarts from the beginning, instead of continuing from page 1. So I end up with page 3 showing the same text as page 1, which is obviously not good. All text boxes continue to be linked.

Interestingly enough, this unexpected behavior occurs only when the paragraphs in the text have either "don't separate first >0 lines" or "do not split the paragraph" options on. At the same time "don't separate last >0 lines" does not cause the problem. So seems like some sort of a bug.

Did anyone encounter this behavior and is there a workaround?

I've been having repeated problems with this behavior, and simply deleting the repeated text isn't a good workaround. The problem reoccurs nearly every time I save the working file. The worst part is that if uncorrected, it can delay or even prevent the file from opening the next time you want to work on it. It has nothing to do with image boxes, by the way. It can occur even in text boxes that have only a few lines of content.

My question is where do I find those options to turn the paragraphs options off?

hi ewac

ok – that was it.
the problem is related to the umlaut. if you delete the 'Ü', the two spaces will disappear.
i don't know much about the metrics tables of a font file. it might be a wrong definition of the hight of the glyph in the 'vollkorn' font or just a scribus bug.
…but it's a bug in scribus anyway. even if the font shows a problem, scribus should not skip a grid line. and it skips two of them!
you should file a bug report. i suppose jean ghali can tell you what's wrong – and probably fix it!

ok, this should be it.

no. that's the scribus file again. it should be a font file (.otf or .ttf).

the attachment shows the missing fonts.

hi ewac

the font files are never embedded in the .sla file. but if you use the menu entry 'file' → 'collect for output', you'll find a checkbox to 'include fonts'. if it is checked, a copy of every font you used in this file will be included in the collection. i need at least the font used in 'regular text gridline'.

Layout Issues / Preventing single word lines
« Last post by Ewac on December 21, 2021, 08:24:55 am »
Hello,
I've been trying to find a setting that would allow me to tell scribus not to create lines with single words. I have text that has justified alignment and hyphenation as settings. I have been going through everything manually to check that at the end of the paragraphs there isn't just one single word or even hyphenated word part and have adjusted hyphenation and line breaks manually.

Is there an automated setting for this that I am not aware of or is it just something that has to be done manually?

Hello Ged,
Can you share the sla file of your project? It seems like something went wrong when you created the links, but it's hard to tell without the original file

Tutorials, Tips and How-Tos / Re: Clickable TOC (table of contents)
« Last post by Ewac on December 21, 2021, 08:08:11 am »
Hello Nairo,

Not sure if you still need the info, but yes, this is possible.
You can create TOC annotations for any object you have in your file. Since your TOC is one big object (textframe) and you don't want to link the whole TOC to a certain place you need a work around. You can place an empty text frame over the words you want to be "clickable" and then make an annotation for that text frame to be a link to that chapter.

Right click on text frame -> PDF options -> is PDF annotation
Then again: Right click on text frame -> PDF options -> annotation properties
Choose type: Link, then choose the page (and position on that page if applicable) you want the link to lead to.

Now when you export the file to PDF, you can click on the chapter name in the TOC (or the invisible empty text frame over that word, to be correct), and you will automatically jump to that page with that chapter.

Not sure if there is an easier option, but this is what I did for course material and it worked perfectly
