Because of the margins(35,30,25,20), half of the page in this tutorial gets cut... Is that expected behavior? I mean, the tutorial make syou put the image outside the margins, doesn't it? Towsonu 23:01, 21 February 2007 (CET)

I wouldn't say half, but yes, it'll crop the image/page. Usually, you always leave some space reserved for bleeding (those which will be printed).

Fyug images?

I am brand new to Scribus & DTP and Wiki. I have successfully downloaded Scribus and am attempting to follow the "Get Started With Scribus" tutorial. Is this where I post questions?

I have two questions: 1. The tutorial has you work with images to create a Fyug project. However, I cannot find where I go to download the sample images. Can someone help me find them? 2. The tutorial has me set up the magazine in mm rather than inches. Is there a reason for this? Also, when I attempt to set an image box properties, I cannot set the width and height without the other changing. For example if I set the image properties to XPos and XPos of 0 then the width to 8.5 inches, the height becomes 12.0565 inches. If I change the height to 11 inches, the width changes to 7.7552 inches instead of the 8.5 that I had entered. Why is it not allowing me to set both the width and height to my chosing?

Now I just hope I can find my answer when I log on next.




@Penny: I wondered the same thing, until I went out to the Introduction page for this tutorial and found a link to a site where these files are located: - hope this helps, if you're still looking for these files! Beerslayer 00:04, 28 July 2011 (CEST)

The box dimensions for the HeadlineBand seems a bit off. The x pos is 93, and the width is 115. But from the sample pages, it looks like the band reaches the right edge of the page. If this is the case, the width needs to be 117. Is this correct?
