[Scribus] Disappearing graphics
Thu Jan 25 00:10:08 CET 2007
The folks with the Parkland Bargain Hunter (http://www.thebargainhunter.net)
have an occasional problem when they load a Scribus document and either all or
several of the graphics have disappeared. They put the graphics back and it's
ok for a while, and then they disappear again a few load/save cycles later.
Using Scribus 18.104.22.168
The last time this happened I told them to immediately copy the .sla file to
another filename, then put the missing graphics back and save the .sla file
again. They have done so and I just took a look at what the differences are.
One of the missing graphics is called "napa auto care logo.png". I see in the
sla file that the one with the missing graphic has this reference to the
PFILE="../../../../commercialads/Logo's/napa auto care logo grey.png"
The one with the graphic still included has this reference instead:
PFILE="../../commercialads/Logo's/napa auto care logo grey.png"
This suggests to me that the sla file is somehow getting corrupted and
including the wrong path to some graphics in large documents. (The Parkland
Bargain Hunter .sla file is about 12mb long, not including the actual text of
the classified ads which is inserted as one of the last steps before printing.)
