Dear list,

I'm working on Scribus 1.4.1 with MacOS 10.7.5. I'm doing comic books and
black & white «line art». I imported some 1bit files saved in tiff with
GIMP, at 900dpi.

I created and exported a pdf with Scribus, in "PDF 1.4", with "automatic
compression" and "maximum quality". Unfortunately, when I tried printing my
pdf, my lines looked a bit dotted and fuzzy on the paper. If I print my
tiff files directly from GIMP, the line is perfectly clear.

It looks like Scribus 1.4.1 converts my 1-bit tiff files in greyscale. It
seems that developpers are working on this issue for version 1.5 (
http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=11029). That sounds good for the
future, but I need a solution rapidly: do you have any simple solution with

Best regards,
