I have never tried importing music into scribus before. I tried to import an
EPS file as a graphic but it treated it as having 72dpi resolution, a bad
decision. If there is a way around this I would be pleased to be educated on
Then I tried creating a document directly from a PS file which was typeset by
my favorite music layout program, Mup. The notes, lyrics etc. all appeared
but only the bottom line of the 5 lines of the staff showed up. The same
effect ocurred with a PS file and with an EPS conversion of that file. That
is even worse.
It is a problem possibly not worth solving since I can always import into Gimp
and save as a bitmap with sufficiently high dpi. But I am curious why the
Scribus PS file conversion routines miss part of the PostScript file. I
doubt that the staff lines are bitmapped.
Would anyone care to play with the PS file as generated by Mup?
