@peter it works on appimage. we have issue with ppa package, and personally i use fedora, its poppler version is 0.73. and im using own builded version of scribus. that too have the issue. i assume it related with poppler version.

You wrote "Kubuntu 19.10", but that has poppler 0.80, not 0.74. Care to explain?

0.74 is in ubuntu disco (19.04) and in the PPA for bionic (18.04). I'm now going to update that copy to 0.80 as well for bionic, but I'd rather not do disco, since that's going to be unsupported in a couple of weeks.

that was my mistake. it was 19.04. we didnt upgraded the systems, we plan to upgrade the systems to 20.04. till that we use 19.04. sorry for the mistake

Alright, I uploaded a new poppler (basically, the same version currently in 20.04) to the PPA for 19.04, then re-uploaded scribus-ng to get it rebuilt against it.

Please check with version 1.5.5-0ubuntu19.04~ppa1 whether you can still see this bug.

ok. will try. but we use scribus-trunk package. because in 1.5.5 hyphen in charecter style will crash the scribus. is this update comes to 1.5.6 ?

reporter   ~0047339

yes, the scribus-trunk 1.5.6~svn packages are automatically built whenever there is a new commit in the trunk branch. When that will happen it will pick up the new poppler, so just wait for that to happen.
