Beginner Talk / Printing guides

Here a free software promoter,
new on the forum and Scribus

Is it possible to print guides?
I am making a calligraphy worksheet and found that the option to custom define guides (for example, I define 52 lines within margins) is very practical for me. I would like this guides to be printed, without me needing to draw lines over each one. Is it possible?

It is simple:

Menu -> Page -> Move will open the dialog

Then select the page range you want to move and where you want to move it.

Hi to all, I am new in Scribus.

how can I move MULTIPLE pages at once ?
one by one is easy, but 10+ pages in a document with 100+ pages is a huge task

Hi Martin, Scribus 2.0 might take a very long time to appear on the market. I am 67 by now…
User Interface / IndigoUI: Dock Manager and Layout Framework
« Last post by tim_occ on August 07, 2022, 01:01:53 am »
Hi all,

I remember a post from MrB expressing his wish that the various docks in Scribus could be arranged side by side.,1617.msg8842/topicseen.html#msg8842

Currently, the standard Qt Dock framework is limited and you can only place (or stack) one panel to the left and one to the right of the central widget, but not several next to it. The same applies to floating docks.

The IndigoUI docking system I developed years ago couldn't do that either. A complete in-house development is probably also not expedient and rather a waste of resources.

In search of an alternative to Scribus I found a solid framework.
See here:

I also started some tests right away and would just suggest this as a useful extension for Scribus.

What do you think?

I've been thinking about the Basepoint widget and I think it needs to be revised urgently, because it doesn't really fit either optically or technically. Technically, because many UI colors are hardcoded.
For a redesign, I primarily looked at Adobe InDesign and Affinity Publisher. In Affinity Publisher I saw that the widget also supports rotation of the selected element. I think this would be a useful widget for Scribus too.

Hi toyotadesigner

It's up to the Scribus developers whether they want the feature at all.
My plan is to first work on a concept, test it, optimize it and then you could think about what will actually be built into Scribus.
In the current IndigoUI mockups I specified Scribus 2.0. Let's see, maybe we'll see everything there.

By the way, the color picker is already programmed.  :D

User Interface / IndigoUI: Dynamic Icon Theme
« Last post by tim_occ on August 07, 2022, 12:10:18 am »
Hi all,

I have collected and tried to solve some problems with the current Scribus iconset.
- Icons are too small for 4k screens (static PNGs)
- Icons have to be specially adapted (recolored) for a dark UI theme.

As a solution, I thought of replacing all icons with SVG files and automating the icon coloring based on the UI theme.

The basis of this concept comes from Inkscape. All icons are SVG based and support both inline styles and embedded CSS files. Separate colors can be set for each icon as it is rendered on a light background or dark background.

If a graphic element in an icon has no color specified by inline style or class, then the current font color of the UI theme is applied to this element. This saves a separate icon set for light and dark backgrounds, since everything can now be configured in one go.

PNG files are still supported and are excluded from automatic changes.

The screenshots below show an example of the toolbar. Icons on a dark background are slightly lighter than on a light background.
