I am a new user of Scribus Aqua 22.214.171.124-2 for Mac (System 10.3.9), and
am having trouble with a few things for which I request some help. The
documentation seems to be for a different version.
1. Scribus will not import EPS or PDF into a file. The only file I've
been able to get it to import into a graphics box is JPEG. As best I
can tell, Ghostscript is installed correctly and is correctly pointed
to in External Tools." Nevertheless, here are the contents of my
:~/Library/Frameworks] michaelm% ls
Fontconfig2.framework libjpeg.framework printafm.1
Freetype.framework liblcms.framework ps2ascii.1
Ghostscript.framework libpng.framework ps2epsi.1
Qt.framework libtiff.framework ps2pdf.1
eps2eps.1 pdf2dsc.1 ps2pdfwr.1
font2c.1 pdf2ps.1 ps2ps.1
gdevdsp.h pdfopt.1 wftopfa.1
and . . .
~/Library/Frameworks/Ghostscript.framework] michaelm% ls
Ghostscript Resources bin man
Headers Versions doc
and . . .
Computer:Frameworks/Ghostscript.framework/bin] michaelm% ls
As far as I know, I have Scribus pointed to Ghostscript properly in the
preferences (External Tools):
2. I have not been able to get columns to work. I found the columns
setting in Page/Manage Guides, but the settings I have entered have
been ignored whether I click on Update or OK.
3. Clicking on Style/Font results in nothing to click on. I can select
fonts from the StoryEditor, but even then, not all the fonts in my
system are made available.
4. At one point, Scribus griped that it could not find GIMP. A search
of GIMP on my system turns up 18 items. So, not being a programmer, I
do not know which to point Scribus to.
5. I have not been able to find where to adjust kerning. I see it in
the documentation, but it doesn't seem to be found in the same location
in the version of Scribus I have.
Thank you ahead of time for any help provided.
