[Scribus] pdf table import
Wed May 18 10:52:02 CEST 2005
thanks all for replying.
option 3 sounds OK but how do I import the ps file? If i create a ps file with openoffice I get an error saying: Impporting file "..." failed!
If I try importing a pdf file into a picture frame nothing happens as I said before. The frame just contains the big red cross.

I tried to use openoffice to create a pdf with a table and import it in scribus but the only way I found was to draw a picture frame and then use the "get picture" function and select the pdf file. this doesn't work however and the picture frame displays only the big red cross.

1.Make a table as a single page document under OpenOffice and format it according to your taste.
2. Print the document to file. You will get a PostScript document.
3. In Scribus you can try to insert ps files directly.
4. Alternatively, you can make a screen capture after Page Preview in OpenOffice and insert the
table as a png picture, but you get some lost in quality.
