Which version of Scribus ? Which distro and library versions?
We have had one user who used Scribus to create packaging in Chinese and he
indicated no real difficulties or crashes with CJK. He said it was easier to
do this in Scribus than in other apps. There is a screen shot of that file
I have a copy of that file which works fine in 1.2. I just tested importing
and exporting UTF-8 text from the story editor, as well as exporting PDF
without problems. The PDF displays and prints perfectly from Acro Reader
CJK is not officially supported yet, as CJK input methods have not been
installed. However, a great deal of work will be put into the 1.3 series to
extend language and script support for non-Latin scripts.
None of the current devels has any real knowledge of CJK, so any help there
would be most welcome.
