Hi all,

can't find how to define filters. The video


doesn't seem to show this part of the game.

Get Text... Filters

gives me the dialog without filters to apply.


   In the File Dialog, Text Filters is selected, bringing up another
   window in which our text codes are used to select the appropriate
   style. As you can see, these have already been determined, and the
   mouse clicks show how the settings correspond with each other.
   Click OK, and we see that by our third method we obtain the same

I get the dialog, but not the filters. They have to be defined
somewhere, I guess. I have the paragraph styles, I saved the file as
template, I prepared the text with the tags, but if the filter is
empty, it won't work.

Where do you explain the definition?


don't explain it either.

   Import: Do not search for the "Text filter" in the Scribus menus.
   You will not find them. Just start importing, as Tsoots shows in
   his screenshot. Important: Do not expect a "Text filter" entry in
   the drop down. Just select ... and click on ... -- and the dialog
   to configure your import will auto-magically appear.

No automagic here...

Thanks, Werner
