General Discussion / Re: Save document preferences like zoom levels?
« Last post by digirew on September 19, 2020, 03:27:08 pm »
a.l.e

I know it may seem simply enough what you mention "you can zoom very fast to 400% with cltr-mouse-wheel or by pressing +..."


However, we have many users that might open/edit hundreds of documents per day. Doing this each time is a lot of extra steps. Most of these file are very small and need 300-400% magnify by default.

Perhaps there is a way to set this on a document open script somehow?


I also noticed in the scribus > preferences > Operator tools

this is an area that I can setup the min and max zoom level percentages. I still havent figured out what exactly this does  but when I change the min level to 300%, it does not save when I close and re-open Scribus. (im on a mac 10.14.6)

I just tried this on my windows machine, double clicking the .sla file , it opens the application and the doc as it should.


I believe it's a bug on the Mac side. Im running MacOS Mojave 10.14.6. I also tried this on another 10.14.6 machine and got the same results.


Anyone else on this platform that can confirm? is there an "easy" workaround?




I do not see any issues with file associations and its showing its setup correctly.

well, all feel to be at the center of europe : - )
except those who feel forgotten at its borders.
I Respect this sentence thank you.

All my files are with 1.4.x scribus
Ok thanks for the App image info , I'll pay attention.
Thanks for the link to the tutorial for command lines, will be very helpfull.
Indeed loose Gimp is an scary prospect...

Here the result of the command line :
Code: [Select]
gvp@gvp-MacBookPro:~$ scribus
scribus: symbol lookup error: scribus: undefined symbol: _ZN12QApplication10commitDataER15QSessionManager

Code: [Select]
gvp@gvp-MacBookPro:~$ which scribus
/usr/bin/scribus

Thanks Nermander, with all this reply it's getting slowly clearer.

As i say "tryed to", it means, i can see in the Menu that Scribus is there like before. But clicking on it nothing appears.

That menu item is kind of a shortcut created by an installer. So the shortcut may be pointing to something that no longer exists.

The best way to test if scribus is installed is to start it from the command line.

Scripts and Plugins / Re: Change the height of the document

Sounds like a very strange requirement, in most cases page size is dependent on what you are going to print on (paper size, label size, box size etc). Can you give a brief explanation of the reason for it? Maybe changing the page size is not the best way to get what you want.

That is usually not a problem with the application, but how the file associations are configured in the operating system/file managers.

When double clicking a file the operating system exceutes a command, giving the file name as a parameter.

For example in Windows my Open association for SLA files looks like this:
Code: [Select]
"C:\Program Files\Scribus 1.5.2\Scribus.exe" "%1"
Where the %1 is replaced the file name when I double click a SLA file.

General Discussion / Re: opening up a scribus .sla file does not open the document itself?

no, i think that if your system is correctly setup, scribus should open the document you double clicked.

but, i'm not an expert in that matter, since i always first start the program and then the document / project.
in my eyes

- it helps when multiple programs can open the same type of file
- you can use the recent files feature
- in my experience at the end you know better where your files are on the disk.

(i just checked: you can also drop a scribus file on the "file > open" dialog... as a workaround, if double clicking does not work for you)

Scripts and Plugins / Re: On Scribus startup script?
« Last post by a.l.e on September 19, 2020, 07:49:33 am »
scribus can run a script at startup, but for measurements and page size, you can set them in the preferences...

you can set the startup script in the preferences > scripter.

no, but you can zoom very fast to 400% with cltr-mouse-wheel or by pressing +...

adding a setting for this should not be too hard, but i wonder if there is a real need for it...
(on top of it, i guess that instead of a default zoom level, it would be more useful to have a setting to ask scribus to scroll to same position and zoom level... but, again, i fear that this is one of those feature that you find really cool when they are not there and you put them on a wish-list, but are more meh when you need to use them)

except those who feel forgotten at its borders.

first, 1.4.8 is not compatible with 1.5.x (this means that if you had 1.5.x in the past, you won't be able to open your files with 1.4; of course 1.5.x can open files from 1.4.8)

if you use an appimage, you should use the latest one. 1.5.5. not 1.5.3 nor 1.5.1. if you have a bug that affects you, you should go for the latest 1.5.6svn and update it regularly.

also: you don't seem to be specially comfortable with the command line: you should probably install your software with a GUI tool...
this link https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1525 suggests that linux mint has a "software manager". you might want to use it.
apt is very powerful but it also gives you more chances to screw up everything.

further one: why aren't you installing mint 20?
ok, it's not a good number, but trying to be behind it's mostly the source of hassle.

ok, the fact that gimp might not be available is a bit scary... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_Mint_version_history

finally, in order to start scribus from a terminal (and getting a clue of why it does not start) you simply type scribus and then return in a terminal.

there is one last information that could help sort out the issue: if you type "which scribus" in a terminal, what does it spit out?
