[Scribus] N00b Stupid Table Question
Fri Oct 21 01:28:02 CEST 2005
I've been lurking here for a while, planning to give Scribus a try.
Today I have a small two-page project to do that is not terribly
challenging, so I thought it might make a good first effort.
Right on the first page I needed a table. After poking around a bit I
got the table on the page. Not inside the text frame where I wanted
it, but at least it's there. Now I need to do some things with this
shiny new table I created -- like typng some text into the cells. I
can type into the first cell, but navigating to other cells seems
impossible. I tried every key that I thought should work -- arrows,
tabs, enter key, plus adding shift, control and alt to them -- and I
looked at the shortcuts too, but nada. Then I clicked on Help, only
to be greeted by a typical Linux message -- "no help yet, but go to
scribus.net." I don't know why I find that so annoying about Linux
programs, but I do.
Anyway, I firefoxed my way to scribus.net and read everything
there Not a peep about navigating tables. In fact, tables weren't
So what's the secret?
Oh, and while I have your attention riveted on tables, how do I
resize columns and rows? In most apps the mouse turns into
something when you cross over the dividing line and then you can
drag the dividing line this way and that. I don't get that in Scribus.
Nor can I find a dialog box to set the row and column sizes.
Also, how do I merge cells?
