Hey, thanks for the tutorial ... I've been using Scribus for a few years now, but I'd never used tables and really couldn't figure it out (I never would have guessed they behave the way they do ... "Ungroup" cells !!??!). Scribus certainly has a pretty fiddly way of handling tables (it really just looks like a macro for generating a grid of text boxes), but despite the pain it is quite flexible.

Cheers.

Nice tutorial.

I tried to change borders colors for the table, but unfortunately the Colors tab is grayed out. The only solution is to ungroup the table change the colors (for all frames at once) and group frames again.

Tedious, but works.

My Scribus is 1.3.4.

Any idea what may be causing this?

it's because you are using 1.3.4
it is still in development and has a few bugs in it. try using 1.3.3.12 that is the version I am currently using and it seems quite stable not to many bugs.

Thank you for making these tutorials! On Scribus, I'm using a table to make a checklist for printing. The text come out when I print but not the table. I tried to change the color of the lines without any success. Any suggestions? Merci!
