Printing Images with transparent Backgrounds
« on: October 09, 2017, 02:21:23 am »
If i try to print images (png or psd) with transparent background, the transparency is replaced with white (not on screen, just on the print). If i export from scribus (1.5.3) to pdf, everything is fine. How can i print those images directly from scribus? Tnx.

if you have issues when printing from scribus, just don't do it.

create a pdf and print it.

the "print" menu entry should simply be removed. scribus is not a software made for printing directly, but for creating pdfs that will be professionally printed (and of course you can also print them on your office printer too!).

sorry, if i keep this as short as possible, but it has been discussed so many times before and it won't change in the foreseeable future.
