Talk:Man page draft for 1.2.x

Comment from Marvin Dickens: "May I suggest the possibility of adding a reference to scripting due to the power that this feature adds to the application."

Fontconfig support in 1.2.x

Quoting:

 /etc/fonts
            Fontconfig, the library used by Scribus  to  locate  fonts,"

Scribus 1.2.x actually doesn't support fontconfig, according to this mail from Craig Ringer: http://irc.altmuehlnet.de/pipermail/scribus/2004-December/007623.html

Please someone clarify this issue and correct this man page draft.

100% Guaranteed, 1.2.x does not support fontconfig. Its supported in 1.3 when you have the F flag in Help About. --Cbradney 08:12, 3 May 2005 (UTC)


TODOs:

  • add info about the Short Words config files (now a part of Scribus)
  • remove notice about $HOME/.scribus/prefs.xml (only relevant for 1.3.x series)

This is not only relevant for 1.3.x series. Its used for storage of window locations, previous directories used etc. --Cbradney 08:12, 3 May 2005 (UTC)

  • is the list of Scribus options up to date?
