Beginner Talk / Re: Cant change image to foil
« Last post by mnawij on January 15, 2021, 12:48:14 am »
Usually it is a separate file or layer either 100% black or another specified color. You cannot foil bitmap/raster images (there is an exception but 99% of users do not know how or have the software to do it).  It also depends if your printer will be hot foil stamping which he needs to make a negative film and die or if the foil will be digital in which case the foil is imprinted at the same time as the sheet is printed.  I would ask them for instructions on file setup and then share that here...


Features / Suggestion: Perspective/Free Transform of images and curves
« Last post by Gibbz on January 15, 2021, 12:23:12 am »
I'd find it really handy to have a free transform tool for images (and curves).  I'm using a lot of images in my work, and very often need to apply some perspective and distortion for image correction, or applying unique style to the assets.

I think the best way would be to have just the bounding box 4 points editable as it it were a square shape in the node editor, then the shape would just fit to the modified bounding box.

I moved over to developing and testing on Windows 10 and that solved the textbox formatting issue.

Is my js code incorrect?
Or is there another step that I missed?
Or is my button idea a waste of time?
Tutorials, Tips and How-Tos / Re: Layout problem after deleting page
« Last post by yakevigatad on January 14, 2021, 06:27:25 pm »
I'm not sure I understand.  The pictures that were originally on the right are now all on the left (after I deleted page 52).  I can't fix this by turning the left master pages into right master pages since the left pages needed to be formatted with margins for the left.

I think I can work around this situation given the needs of my project.  But it seems to me that it's impossible in Scribus to delete a single page of a book without screwing up the alignment of everything that follows.  But maybe I'm missing something?  I see how adding a blank page would fix this, but I wouldn't want to add a blank page to my book just because my software requires it.
Layout Issues / 4 sheets in one page
« Last post by FRSU on January 14, 2021, 05:53:53 pm »
I'm a total newbie :-[ , and my idea is to edit a page (A4) with 4 sheets double sided. The sheets are 81*120 mm (filofax pocket) so there are plenty of space. But how do align page 1 and 2 of my sheets on different sides of the A4 page? I have tested several  methods but they will not align.

Further I will create a PDF-form in the sheets so I can copy/paste info from a data source and then print, cut my sheet out and put it in my filofax pocket map.

I'm aware that the question might been asked before but I don't now what I'm searching for  :'(

Hello, how can i change the color of an image to foil? I created a card and has some foil print on it, the foil goes on the written part, but the images aren't. I put the images as colorized then foil. But according to the printing company, there is no foil, just gold color.

I got a test print, that showed that
