[Scribus] Use question: multiple versions
Thu Feb 14 22:00:25 CET 2008
Hi - I believe that I am so busy getting a newsletter I edit out that I
am not spending the time to learn the tool (Scribus) properly. Can
anyone suggest the easy way to do the following tasK, semi-automagically?
I make a newsletter that is usually 20 or 24 pages, 8.5 x 11, but
printed on 11 x 17, saddle stitched (stapled) and folded. It is also
released in .pdf format.
Currently, I do the master by laying out the single sheet format, which
can be printed to .pdf for the electronic version. Then I create a
Ledger size document, and copy the laid-out pages in the appropriate
order to make the printing master.
1: I know how to do master pages for page numbers in the single sheet
version. Is it possible to do them in the large version? The page
numbers follow a different sequence when laid out for printing. (The
first sheet would have 20, 1, 2, 19, then the second would have 18, 2,
3, 17, etc...)
2: Is there an easier way to arrange the pages than either copying the
individual pages from one document to another, or (ick!) printing .pdf's
and importing them?
I have looked a bit, but don't find the answer I want readily.
