OK, lets try something more basic. I cannot edit shape of the frame for a table (to set margins). (Edit button is gray) Is it intended for current state of development?

Scripts and Plugins / Re: Retrieving page numbers from sections?

Caveat: Do not expect a proven solution from me since I am still a relatively new observer studying the internal structure of Scribus XML from sidelines. In particular how to dynamically parse content. There are more experienced users in this forum.

However, one observation is that you do not mention the uses of Sections as discussed here ..,page%20number%20in%20the%20section.

That is ... File > Document Setup > Sections.

You are somehow using Master Pages from what I read.

I can inspect Sections elements by running my test.sla through XMLCopyEditor which bypasses Scripter.

Attributes can be retrieved from Section elements.

Indeed you can dynamically change and read Section attributes through to create an index.

Thanks, there's some really helpful replies here. I started playing with Scribus on my Mac (as specified above) and I'm finding that a lot of the menu options (e.g. justify, save and exit text box) appear very, very dark, so that I can only see what they are by hovering the cursor over them. I had a look in the settings but I couldn't work out what's wrong. I'm still new to using the Mac so I'm a bit of a mess at the moment but I was wondering if anyone recognised this problem? Many thanks.
Scripts and Plugins / Choose page of PDF in Image Frame
« Last post by anha_h on February 24, 2021, 04:22:36 pm »

I think I basically have the same problem as this post here:

I have a pdf with multiple pages that I want to display my document. But I need them to be in a specific (but complicated) order. I know that it is possible to do it by hand in scribus.
I'll have to do this for multiple documents with a lot of pages each, so I thought I'd want to write a script for that. 

Is there a way for a script to load a different page number of my pdf?
Is there a solution to this 9 years later?

hi unisound7

i wouldn't place an email address in an open forum post. if you need it to be private, just click my user name and 'send pm' – but as long as there are no 'secrets' involved, we should keep it open…

hi mister

You gave me a circular reply.

no. i just went on to your new question, as the rest reads for me as: "now i know, how i should do it, but i won't…" – and there i can't really help. i'm almost sure, there will be workarounds, either with the scripter or with a complex set of style exchanges (delete/replace styles) – but i don't work that way and it may be easier to screw up with it than to fix your problems.
take it as part of your learning – and the next time you use a new software, try to learn the basics on smaller projects…

You gave me a circular reply.

I am already thick into a document that I did not start from a template. Is there no way to make a newly defined paragraph style permanent while I'm working on my document?

I do not wish to modify the default paragraph style. I want make a NEWLY DEFINED paragraph style the default. Not have the default be ... the default.

Does this make sense to you?
