I wrote in Italian because question submitted by lupodimare was in italian.
Lupodimare also posted his question in english. Subject: [scribus] problems with 1.4.1

Above a little summary of my reply:

Do you have deleted or moved from hard disk original images included in scribus project?


If I havw all my images on c:\images_files and in c:\projects the scribus files, the scribus file (.sla) don't embed all images but it contains links t files in c:\images_files.
If this location change, or disappear, scribus can't load images and
all images are replaced by red cross.

I  regularly use  Scribus 1.4.1 to createphoto catalogs about 40/50 pages  and reltive hi resoolution PDF of about 4/5 GByte and I've never had problems that you describe.


Ensure to have latest Ghostscript and corret Ghostscript configuration on Scribus.
If your project is very big (with a lot of big images) and you use it on windows XP 32 bit you could have instability problems when you reopen your project (experienced firsthand).
If you have a 64bit windows s.o. download 64bit version of Scribus 1.4.2 (also for ghostscript).
Even better if you have a linux PC to run scribus.
