[Scribus] Almost right -- problem with EPS export
Wed Sep 13 21:41:13 CEST 2006
I used Scribus for a contribution to an art magazine all done in Adobe
In-Design and everything went well up until the last point:
The printer requested EPS files and now we find out, that on some pages
(of course those we did not test in advance...) images went missing.
The trouble is, that I am working on Linux Ubuntu, and the designer of
the magazine on Mac. He needs to open the files in Adobe Illustrator
(which I don't have), but it seems that those pages with images running
over two pages, create trouble.
Strange: we can convert the EPS on both platforms (Mac/Linux) to PDF and
end up with a correct lay-out.
Following bug report 0003371 I tried to re-import page1.eps and
page2.eps back into Scribus, and it gives this error message:
Maybe one of you recognises the problem? Is it true that pictures should
not run over 2 pages? Are there any settings to be done for EPS export?
Can you export multiple pages for example?
I would much appreciate your ideas about what could be going on.
