thanks for the script, it's exactly what I need. Nevertheless, the
discussion made me think of a more simple solution without the need to
input width/height. But this needs a bit of python and api knowledge
which I don't have. The method would resemble what I could manually do
in scribus to achieve the same effect: Assume picture loaded in frame.
1. Click the picture frame and in the "Image" tab set the "scaling"
to "to frame size" without checking proportional. That gives me a
2. Select "Free scaling" which leaves the image distorted and shows
the x- and y-scale percentage.
3. Copy the higher percentage over the lower one, if I e.g. have
X-Scale = 170% and Y-Scale = 150%, then I replace the Y-Scale by
Now the picture fills the frame and I don't have to change the frame
size during the process. Moreover, it is the same procedure for width
and height since I always take the higher percentage value. Do I have
access to the scaling values and to the "To frame size" option? I guess
"scribus.setScaleImageToFrame" does the latter but how to access the
Thanks and best regards
