Beginner Talk / Importing content to multiple pages
« Last post by johntennock on July 27, 2021, 07:34:49 am »
Hi All, Just getting my head around Scribus to prepare a book for publishing.

The manuscript is being created in Libre Office. It seems most efficient if I could import it directly and the procedure I am following is:

Page | Insert | 20 pages.
Insert | Frames... Text, All Pages, Link inserted frames

My issue is that I would prefer to import the content by selecting the source document in the Insert Frames | Options tab.

This works fine except that it inserts a space between paragraphs. I have checked the manuscript to ensure that there are no empty paragraphs.

If I go the alternative route and copy/paste the content into the Story Editor it is fine, without spaces between paragraphs.

I'm wondering if there is a setting I am missing to strip the empty lines when importing directly?

Thanks in anticipation.

Beginner Talk / Re: How to the remove marges when printing ?.
« Last post by alexsunny123 on July 25, 2021, 02:56:09 pm »
Hello,

I'm a beginner, and I have problems for printing. Ometv Chatroulette Omegle Bazoocam

I first use A4 portrait pages and try to print 2 pages on A4 landscape (as we can do with OpenOffice), but the print page is always in A4 portrait, the print is bad.

So I decide to change the page format to A4 landscape, and reduce the first content (fonts, ...) to choose the page : A4 (pages en regard)

But, when I print, I have big marges on the top, the left, and the right, and all the pages which seem correct in the page are wrong on paper.

What do I miss ?

thanks
alexsunny


thanks for the awesome information.

hi admfubar

at the moment scribus supports sample text for 21 different languages (including arabic).
you may still miss some languages, and i didn't try any rtl features (as i'm not familiar with rtl languages) - but it's not just 'lorem ipsum'

General Discussion / Lorem Ipsum and other languages
« Last post by AdmFubar on July 22, 2021, 06:11:24 am »
I was looking over a users issue from LibreOffice regarding labels and was testing the label after removing the the border, making sure the label still accepted text. I copied and pasted a small part of lorem ippum  to the lable to make the test.

I then noted to myself that LO and Scribus are used the world over, in many languages and thought about lorem ipsum is used as a standard looking text for layout testing.
But what about other languages?  Like RTL, Verticle. Are there any equivalents to lorem ipsum, and not just direct translations of it, for other languages?
This seems like a worth while addition for user contributions for Scribus and LO.

Would like to hear other ideas on such an addition.

well you can do layers in Scribus and each can have .SVG files on them and you can then make a .PDF

Announcements and Forum Rules / Create layered PDF from multiple SVG files

Hello,
I have just discovered Scribus and I was wondering if it would be possible to create a single page PDF with multiple layers from different SVG files.
As I said, I have never used this program, so maybe this is a simple question, but I will appreciate any help.

Text and Typography / Re: uneven rendering of fonts

Thanks, zooming in didn't improve this. However, with a larger font I am now satisfied its OK.

Did you try printing the PDF?

How does it look if you zoom in?

Most likely it is just a screen viewing issue due to that the font for some reason lacks good hinting (or that then hinting information for some reason is lost, maybe due to subsetting).

(Hinting is data telling how to render the font in low resolutions, when parts end up in between pixels)

Text and Typography / uneven rendering of fonts
« Last post by algosbay on July 10, 2021, 02:58:15 am »
Hi,
I am a new user using the latest stable version on windows 10.
When I export to PDF I am noticing that the letter 'l' is distorted see attached example.
The undistorted view is a screenshot from the Scribus Editor
The view with distorted 'l's is an screenshot from Adobe Acrobat
The selected font is Verdana.  The top line is 13pt and the bulleted lines are 10pt.

please could someone could explain what's going on here and advise what I could do to avoid this.
