In KDE the alt key modifier will move the whole window.

to be more inclusive, you can press the alt key while selecting...
as usual, starting from an "empty" space.

User Interface / Re: IndigoUI: Color Picker and Editing
« Last post by tim_occ on September 15, 2022, 09:04:18 pm »
Hi a.l.e

Yes, I'm back. Currently, after I saw a lot of new UI improvements in other software like Blender, Inkscape or Gnome Desktop, I decided to continue working on Scribus' UI. This time with a different approach and as a separate project. To simulate some content, I used some Scribus code and modified it (like ScColor). Because of that, the UI is not compatible with Scribus directly, but that was not my intention. First, I want to have a result that works as is and later someone (or me) can think about how to marry Scribus with IndigoUI.  :D

Help is always welcome in the form of:
- feedback (the current result is based on my old concept, the form feedback here and state-of-the-art software like Affinity Publisher and Adobe InDesign)
- code contribution (also a good project/folder structure)
- icons (currently I'm using Material Design icons, because I'm too lazy to convert all Scribus PNGs to SVGs)

About your compiling issues, I can take a look into it.
Please, can you report all technical issues here?
https://github.com/nitramr/Scribus-IndigoUI-Mockup/issues

I think it is better to keep the tech talk in the project directly.

I'm using Qt 6.2.3 with Qt Creator on Ubuntu 22.04. The code is never tests in other environments.

best,
Martin

So if I go to the printshop I have to tell them which Pantone they have to use in each layer?
Thank you!

The ods file does not use the correct unicode symbols for those missing symbols, it uses substitute fonts where the symbols are using character codes that really belong to other symbols.

I would have a look at if it is possible to use search and replace in the ods file to replace the incorrect characters with correct unicode characters (copy them from the text document?).

Pantone colors are what is called spot colors. As I understand it each spot color has its own layer in the PDF and that layer I think usually shows as black and white. The idea is that the printer will use this layer to create a printing plate for the pantone color, but it is the ink that is used on that plate that determines the color.

The printer essentially chooses color based on the name of the layer.

If you want the PDf to simulate spot colors on screen I think you need to do that manually (but I have never worked with spot colors).

The selection process is actually designed that way on purpose However there is a kind of work around, in the outline window, you can multi select items from the list, by using the shift or ctrl keys while left clicking the items you want.

Hello from Spain!
I'm having troubles exporting PANTONE colors on a pdf, it's like they are not embedded?
You know how to include them? I have to use an specifical pdf format?

Beginner Talk / Click and slide selection mode
« Last post by ccazerty on September 15, 2022, 11:56:24 am »
Hi everyone,

Is there a mode or some preferences with the selection tool, to set the click and slide selection more inclusive ? By default, I have to take the whole objects inside my selection. Is it possible to take all the objects that my selection is touching ?

Thank you very much,

Text and Typography / Re: Special characters not showing up in Scribus
« Last post by legoaddict1949 on September 14, 2022, 10:36:02 pm »
I tried to test the character with the police I choose in libre office, and it works. However, when I write the character in Scribus, I get this white square...

Yes, that's because LibreOffice has a mechanism that finds a font that contains the "ß" character and uses that instead, although it doesn't tell you that it's a different font when you highlight it. (I know… pretty confusing.)

Conclusion: Find another font for either just the ß character or for the whole text you're using in Scribus, because the latter doesn't have that easy automatic replacement mechanism.

Cheers!
