[Scribus] Almost right -- problem with EPS export
Thu Sep 14 09:49:43 CEST 2006
I'm testing out pdftops now for a next round (am struggling a bit with
margin settings but I think I've got it now); have in the mean time
decided to export all pages as .pdf (to maintain the placement and
layering of the images); convert them as .tiff in Gimp; export pages
with text as eps and now the designer can put all together into an eps
he can / he knows the printer can handle.
Re: why eps -- this is an unfortunate decision of the printer
After all Scribus held out well during this converting and reconverting
marathon; no crashes and reasonably fast.
