Beginner Talk / Re: Ability to print reader pa...

Ok this is archaic I know, but I was searching for this issue and thought I could bump the post.

I also am familiar with the export option that Indesign has (print as spread) and I was looking for it with scribus.

I looked up jpdf tweaks and it requires oracle's java......
The scribus wiki printing page points to pstops (cli)

But a checkbox in scribus pdf export would bi so much easier, than export as single pages and make the imposition with another program.

For my work, I am producing a book cover, following a clever technique where three pages are put alongside in a spread, back cover, spine and front cover. This is so that the spine width can be easily adjusted and of crs cos it looks good in a spread. Then during export just need to check (spread) and the resulting file is a combined 3 pages that can go straight to the book printers and not fail their validation.

To request Debian to update a package to a newer version, file a "wishlist" bug on their bug tracker. Explain that you want version 1.6.1 and why it's needed. This lets the maintainers know there's interest in the update.

On the Text Properties window, go to the Path Text Properties, and change the "Start Offset" value to move the text along the frame.
