[Scribus] scribus and pdf export
Mon May 3 13:08:44 CEST 2004
I've come across some pdf issues with scribus (and no, it's not xpdf or
acrobat that has the problem):
- when exporting a doc to pdf with png images in it that have
transparant background, the background get's set to black on the pdf
file. The print-to-file generated postscript file shows this correctly.
- if you have a rectangle created (eg. color gray) and within you create
an image box, then on the resulting pdf the image box is totally black
if you select the image compression technique "none"
- downsampling of images: sometimes the images get not only downsampled,
but also reduced in size. I had this problem with a logo that appeared
two times on a page (landscape): the left logo got reduced in size, the
right logo stayed just fine ... It seemed to be doing this only with
template images, but I didn't test this assumption.
And something weird that has been in for a couple of versions already:
You created an image, and afterwards you want to resize it. So you click
on the image for resizing and you click on one of the resize-blocks
present to resize the image. Now somtimes this results in a immediately
resized image that's much smaller, without you even doing anything. Not
reproducable, and not blocking the process, but it's a weird thingie
that happens to me at least once everytime I work with scribus.
hope this helps in debugging ...
btw: used version was the latest released 1.1.6 version.
