[Scribus] using multiple fonts within one line of text?
Sat Feb 24 08:50:35 CET 2007
I am a relative newcomer to Scribus. I have looked but I cannot figure this
out from the online help files. I am using Scribus 18.104.22.168 on Windows XP.
I am designing a DVD jacket cover. On the back I must fit a large amount of
text into a small space, and I need multiple font weights on one single
line. It is the sort you have probably seen on movie posters:
producer PRODUCER NAME director DIRECTOR NAME composer COMPOSER NAME
...and so forth. I put the plain text into the "story editor" window but
the "Style" selector boxes in the left-hand column seem to apply to an
entire line of text at once. In this case, I need to alternate styles for
almost every word on a line.
I seem to be able to do this by highlighting a single word and choosing a
new font (eg. Arial Narrow Regular vs. Arial Bold) but there is no visual
confirmation of this in the edit window, and when I place the cursor within
the word, the selection box does not show the correct font for that word.
Is there a good way to do this kind of font selection, or is this something
that Scribus is not designed to do? Thank you for any tips!
