[Scribus] Baseline - Beardline?
Fri May 12 23:04:40 CEST 2006
As well as Suse 9.3 system fonts I use Microsoft core and Adobe fonts + some
All Microsoft and Adobe fonts I use sit on the beardline + most of Suse system
fonts. Some freeware script fonts I have sit between the baselines.
All fonts are consistent where they sit when threaded through the story even
when two or more type faces are mixed in a text block. (That is why there is
no problem because of this consistency - re threading from column to column).
I always use a different layer for headings/subs - re type pt size and
I'll go through my document setup ...as I'm wondering if all this is font
'nature' and not a Scribus baseline bug.
Font size 12pt
Document size A4 Portrait
Top margin 3.00p
Bottom margin 3.50p
Preferences/Document setup/Guides - Baseline Settings: Grid 1.20p (20%),
Properties Pallette/ Text Font 12pt, Line spacing (leading) 14.4pt (20%)
All mentioned in my last email, I can drop text down to the baseline by
adjusting Top to about 0.30p (depending on the font it will in fact be either
0.30, 0.35 or 0.40).
I hope I have explained this clearly?
Also, I should mention that I no longer use Microsoft Windows (Win2K) so I
can't test to check all this on Scribus Windows port.
BTW I am now using Scribus professionally - goodbye InDesign :-)
