Features / Make gradients easier to manip...
Last post by sunmarsh - Today at 05:17:55 AM
In Scribus 1.6.1 you must be very exact when using the gradient slider to select the small triangle and then to move it. If you accidentally slide your mouse off the arrow the gradient node will be deleted. This is very frustrating, and incredibly common as it is very difficult to move a mouse in a very straight line. I would suggest doing two things:

1) Adding a thin vertical line above the triangle that can also be "grabbed". Grabbing this line would not allow you to remove the gradient node. Only grabbing the node and pulling it up or down would allow it to be removed.

2) Increasing the "clickable area" of the node (and line from suggestion 1) so that it is not so tied to the actual (tiny) size of the node. This makes it a lot easier to select the node/makes it more accessible to those who have difficulty clicking on very small areas.

"Gradient.JPG" shows the current setup.
"Gradient+.JPG" shows the addition of the line, and the highlighted area shows the increased size of the "clickable area" (which would not actually be visible, it's just highlighted in the image).

I only use that website you mention for scripting scribus.

Im using 1.6.1 and I get the below error when I try to set scribus.setPageHeight(objheight)

AttributeError: module 'Scribus' has no attribute 'setPageHeight'.

It makes me believe that it does not exist in 1.6.1?

hi ramiro,

i guess that we need more details here...

what do you mean by "the files in scribus ... disappeared":

  • are the images in the document that disappeared?
  • or you don't find your scribus documents anymore?

Good morning.
I downloaded the initial .sla on a debian based OS machine, another on manjaro.
My .sla has the same bug under theses linux.
I renamed .sla, modified text and images to import from Pixabay (thanks to the artists for sharing)!
I export in pdf. and in .png. I attach the result and all the file here :

This vector and matrix mix displays the bug:

Theses both not:

This image does not appear to show the bug:

This one displays the bug only after I have modified it:

I don't know if it will help more or not.

Note that if you do experience this and you haven't moved the images, if you double click on the red frame and re-link, all of your image sizing/etc. will be retained.   The relinking feature is quite nicely done and saves you from having to start from scratch with any given image.
Also note that if you use a NAS other other networked storage device to hold your photos, and you're on a Mac, if the Mac loses touch with the device, Scribus will most likely show the red frames for those photos
