Not being familiar with Scribus, is it not possible to create the artworks at A6 (105mm x 148.5mm, which is exactly one-quarter the size of A4, then make an A4 page and cut and paste the A6 into the A4 four times? That was the simplest non-tech way to impose when I worked at Prontaprint for several years. The number of times we would get an artwork from a ...

(this is essentially a long structured comment) All of the software you mention can do this. It depends a bit on the situation. Its quite clear that if you are laying the images for print then InDesign and Illustrator are the tools for the job. You might need to adjust each individual picture in photoshop, however. Laying out for non print context I would ...

Go to the menu View and uncheck all "snap to [...]" options and see if it works. Snap to point and Snap to Grid often produced those kind of Problems for me. Also use the Align-Tools to move the objects together. Mouse-moves also sometimes work weird. Hope this helps. Sry for bad english!

You need to see whether in the Align option - down right hand corner - under 'Align to section' - need to select 'Align to artboard option', then it will work properly

This may not be the most elegant solution, but working in Illustrator is all about problem solving. My suggestion would be to place two extra lines on the edges of the square, for the vertical lines, one on the exact right and one on the exact left, then dropping your two original lines pretty much anywhere in between. Then select all four lines, switch to ...

Looking at your sample, my immediate reaction is that Illustrator is the wrong tool for the job. It (inexplicably, and in my opinion inexcusably) lacks the kind of snapping functionality you need. You'd be better to create these outlines in a CAD tool, which would make this kind of alignment easy. Once you have your completed outline, save as a .dwg and ...

Your question is exceptionally unclear. You have a single object selected, you do not offer any information as to how you are trying to align that single object nor any detail as to what exactly isn't working. However.... Align has three functions: Align to arbaord Align to other objects (selection) Align to a single key object Items 2 and 3 require ...

The easiest way to do this with an equal triangle is to use Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform Draw one triangle, select it and choose Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform from the menu. Set the origin point to the top middle, set the # of copies to 1, and set the angle to 60° (to match the angle of the side). Click OK then ...

Are you trying to make a pattern like a line of triangles with the same distance between each triangle? If so you can take the first triangle and convert it to a s brush and set the distance between each triable. If you are trying to align 2 shapes side by side at the exact same x or y axis select the shapes and at the top of your screen there will be ...

As far as I know, you cannot change default stroke align. The only option to change that in normal circumstances is after you create some object. In normal I mean without scripting/code intrusion etc. Try to imagine how the program should decide where to apply the "inner" "outer" stroke on the open line or path which is not closed.
