I hear you it SHOULD work. But for some reason it's not working for me.

It seems like it did work at some point, so something odd must have changed in my settings.

In the end, it was actually easier for me to just write a python module that spits out the XML in the structure scribus wants and then manually insert it as StoryText into the sla file.

Hackery at its finest. But Scribus is very finicky and sometimes it's easier to just lift the hood.

yes, it looks alike...

the usual way would be:
  • 'file' → 'export' → 'save as .pdf'
  • in the 'fonts' tab of the export window you should see your fonts either in 'fonts to embed' or in 'fonts to subset'
  • after controlling all the settings press 'save' and scribus should create a readable file...

Hey guys.
When I export a text file from Scribus to PDF the pages are created as large images. I cannot use the "Find" tool on the created PDF, nor can I select texts to copy and paste. Am I doing something wrong when exporting?

hi farzan

i don't know exactly what you did try, but if you want persian page numbers, you need to go to the "file > document setup", then go to the "sections" section and choose the persian style for the the (current) section.

and, of course, you need to have a font installed that has glyphs for arabic / persian... but i guess that you have that.

you can use inkscape from the command line

Thank you very much PatJr.
I am not sure I have done it correctly but after "select all" I am not able to apply the page number style as "apply" is not active any more.

However, I found another workaround for it: after insertion of automatic page numbering in usual way I went to document setting-section and chose in style the Persian numbers.

it was clunky but I think it works
make a character style
edit the master page
apply the master page
go back and reedit the master page and use select all so the page variable gets selected
apply the page number style
end master page edit

not sure it worked because I'm not sure what it should look like??
I did have to do the double edit on the master page to get style to take on page variable

Dear All,
Is there any workaround to do the pagination in Persian/Arabic? When making page numbers in master page I chose a Persian/Arabic font. However it shows the page numbers in English. Is there a way to change the language so that Scribus understands the page numbers should be in Arabic/Persian?
Thank you.
