I am using Scribus 18.104.22.168-1 under Windows XP.
I have been using Scribus for a year or so, and for the first time I
wanted to have small caps, or an approximation thereof.
Just how does one use the small-caps K tool?
I have been playing with the tool on and off for the past two hours. I
have gotten small caps several times, but I cannot tell how I acquired
the effect! I certainly cannot get small caps at will.
The obvious method was to select text and click the small-caps K button.
This accomplished nothing.
Positioning the cursor where I wanted the small-caps text to appear and
then clicking the button did not work because typing had on effect as
the focus was still on the text pane. And if I clicked on my text, the
button would "pop back up".
Several other attempts were strictly from hunger and did not give me the
effect I wanted.
Some seemingly random set of moves did give me small caps twice, but I
had on way to duplicate the effect.
I did get small caps once by selecting text, clicking the button and
then clicking my selected text. After my first success I have not been
able to get small caps when and where I want them.
Trying this technique again got the results I wanted. Now my question is
am I doing it correctly as it seems to be a baroque way to get a text
