Here's what I have found. If you are using Cinnamon or KDE, and probably other DEs but I haven't tried them all out, there is no issue whatsoever getting Scribus to dock floating palettes. Just drag them to the right edge of the Scribus window and *poof!* they will dock. Keep dragging them over there and you'll have a series of tabs at the bottom so you can go directly to the palette in question.
But, in Gnome 3 (I've seen this behavior in at least the 3.4x series) it just won't work. The palettes do not dock, no matter what one does.
Is there any way for users to fix this, or is this some kind of desktop environment-related bug?
I had a similar problem a while back, what I did was open a new inkscape document and then cut and paste the graphic to it. Dunno why it work then, must have been some element that I couldn't see in the original file.
I have a problem with a single Line in a few files after pdf export. The design starts with inkscape, save as *.svg.Then open a new file in Scribus, import the svg file, convert to CMYK, save as *.sla. All looks fine. After export the file as PDF/X-1a there is a single Line which i can not find in the svg or in the sla file. I recognized the mistake after get 4 beachflags printed by a professionel service. Ok, i have to live with that, but i don't want to do this mistake again. What could i do? If the files are needed for help, there is no problem. My work is under CC-BY-SA, but there is a registered Logo in it.
It would be great if we could just link svg files, rather than embed it, just like we do with images. It is indeed not convenient to have to import a new version of an svg file everytime we make a modification to it.
I create first a link annotation, choose the type URL and write the web address into the Destination field. Then I write into the link annotation box, the text of the link. Into Scribe, I see this text but when I create the PDF document, the text is not visible but the link annotation is present. When I pass the mouse on it, it changes into a hand. A click, or double-click, open the navigator at the right page.
