[Scribus] paragraph style templates / transparentcy and PNG
Sun Jan 18 21:10:23 CET 2004
with Scribus 1.1.5 cvs there are some problems with the paragraph style
templates. I have created 6 or 7 templates, but in the list there are at
least 20 copies of my templates (copy of ?berschrift, copy of...., copy of
copy of...) After deleting, they will soon be back again. In addition to
that, the entry in the proprety-tool, where I can choose the templates, is
just one entry high, which means unpleasant scrolling (even if i have it in
fullscreen - then there is a lot of free space wasted in the upper part of
I'm wondering, whether it`s realy not possible to put some text
( as .png-Graphic created with gimp) over an other .png-picture without those
ugly white text-background. I use this way, because I have a special font,
which makes problems with pdf if I use it directly as a font in Scribus. I
thought the .png-workarount could help, but the bakground is not transparent.
The .png is created with RGB-Alpha and transparency works in gimp, but not in
scribus. I selected no backgroundcolor and no linecolor, but I have still the
background, after loading the .png to the graphic-frame.
Is it possible, that I can not copy items from I page to another? It works in
earlier versions, but now it has no effort. May this be a reason for my
copies in the paragraph-templates, that there are only the templates copied?
Would it not make sense, if the scrapebook saved the x and y position of every
items makes it possible the insert items on the same position on an other
page via insert-button?
Those questions came in to my mind after one hard layout-session for our
Scribus is great work so far!!!
