ciao tiziana,

> Sorry for my English, I hope you will understand my problem.
> I prepared an instruction manual (how to wear a Mei Tai) using 
> Scribus. I have an immage in background, with transaprency setted on 
> 10% (or20%). I saved my file in PDF and uploaded it in Scribd

> Here is first problem: links at the bottom of the page don't work. 
> Just in the last page you can click on CCLicense and on my e-mail

> Title on the first page has not correct font but this is less important.
> After that I embedded the manual in my blog using the code created by

> I asked helpdesk in Sribd, but they gave me suggestions for Adobe

> Can you help me solving this problem?
> Thanks a lot for attention...

one question: which version of scribus did you use?

for the image in background: not all pdf version do support 
transparency... the simple solution is probably to edit the image to 
make it "lighter".
did i understand correctly? you only have the transparency problem when 
you embed the file in your blog and not when you look at it in scribd?

for the incorrect font: you have to embed the fonts when exporting to 
pdf (there is a tab for it)...

for the link... hard to say without seeing the .sla...
