@celesteh Keep in mind though that photogrammetry does not build in any real world scale so you will have to scale up/down the 3D model afterwards to make it work perfectly.

@celesteh I'm not sure about Android apps for these things but I have tried using photogrammetry to create 3D models from real life objects. Then you can just use any relatively good camera and take a bunch of pictures and construct a 3D mesh from that. I used Meshroom last time I tried this technique and it worked pretty well and is foss. alicevision.org/#meshroom

@crickxson @wendy @yarela Yes! I guess this is a bug/feature of the baseline grid in Scribus then. Bit annoying that it doesn't allow you to overlap glyphs/have tighter baseline grid spacing if one would want to do that.
But on your dislike of baseline grid, did we not use baseline grids when making Medor in html2print or am I misremembering?

@yarela I guess it could be something in relation to the font. If I change to a different font this problem disappears but appears again if I change the sizing of that font. I have a feeling it is something related to this forums.scribus.net/index.php/t in the sense that scribus uses the height of the character + the diacritic to see if it fits on the line while other programs ignore the diacritic. But I guess the simplest solution would be to try other fonts and hope to find something that works nicely.

Any experts here that can tell me why capital letters with diacritics (especially the ´ ) adds a linebreak for no reason? is there any way to avoid this that does not involve reducing the text size by a lot or increasing the baseline grid spacing by a lot?

I think it's kind of funny I have a backup/archive of all the projects I've done in the past 6 or 7 years which seems to be the norm except that in those years my workflow and choice of software has changed so much that I am unable to open/use any of the files.Not that I really need to use them for anything :thinkhappy:

it's all about creating or consuming content these days

I found a 1985 vintage Daisy Wheel recently. It's basically an electric typewriter (sans keyboard) with a serial port. I have no docs but it seems to have similar guts to an old Atari printer which has PDFs floating around. It's enough that I have sorted out how to print all characters, and tweak the vertical and horizontal pitch.

art is fun but I decided to make graphics... by typing lots of periods. I dig it. It has a kind of offset dithered look:

@praxeology @kupfers Just tried rubbing one of my riso posters and it started to make something close to a smudge so I guess if you have people with moist hands trying to rub the prints it wouldn't be bad to coat it hehe.

@praxeology Yeah the right way to do it is to let it dry for at least a day between each color as the ink can smear on the rolls in the printer and then you get these ugly lines on your print. But I found out you can get away with printing all the layers back to back if each layer doesn't have much ink on it and you're in a hurry.
I've also discovered if you up the brightness setting on the riso or make the master pdf's darkgray (rather than black) it prints a bit lighter which also tends to smudge less.
Then of course you have different kinds of papers that absorb the ink differently etc etc so I guess it is a bit of trial and error.

@praxeology In my experience the ink is completely fixed once it is dry but it normally takes a few days to dry properly.

@fragmentscenario I've also found quite a lot of websites that generate a simple outline of a country or regions of countries but if you need more information on the map then that isn't so useful.

I used Maperitive (maperitive.net/) the other day to generate svg's of a map and then just edited the map in Inkscape. It was a bit time consuming and not super intuitive but works. If you are looking for a way to just style a map for a website you might look into Maputnik but I couldn't really find a way to export that to SVG. OSP also has an article on their blog on converting OSM to SVG blog.osp.kitchen/tools/osm-to-. If you find a nicer way to do this I'm curious to hear your solution.

Wow I was just watching a video about why this happens and then see your toot :unacceptable:


@praxeology Looks really interesting. Have you made any progress on using it?
