I am using Linux and I had a similar problem as reported by Jean.If I open
the PDF file using Okular, all pages are blank. However, if I open the PDF
with Firefox's PDF viewer, all is fine and the images load really fast.

Also, if I open the cover files in ODT format they turn out to be too heavy
and it is very hard to scroll down the document and make any editing. As
discussed in our last meeting, this is because the image in the ODT file is
in SVG format.

What I did was open the SVG files using Inkscape and export as a 300 dpi
PNG file. Then I inserted them as PNG images into the ODT files. Now
they're lighter to load and navigate.

When I open the GS7 cover PDF within NextCloud, it looks correct, but
when I download the file to my Mac and open it in Preview (the most
common way Mac users open PDFs, AFAIK), most of the contents are not
visible. I have never seen this happen before!

It does open, but very slowly, in Adobe Reader on my Mac and in Adobe
Reader on Windows 10, but on Win10 Adobe Reader stopped working while
I was trying to scroll down to the back cover. I have not checked this
PDF on any Linux distro. I have not tried any of the other cover PDFs.

Hi Team

Pushing forward the work initiated by Rizal Muttaquin and later by Drew
Jensen, I gave a try on the back and front covers of the 7.0 series of

All files are in the /Contributor Resources/Cover7.0/ folder.

I am not a designer nor an expert in the printing industry, so forgive
the errors and mistakes. Furthermore, I had to learn Inkscape UI almost
from scratch.

All Source-* files are editable and has fonts "as fonts", that is, if
later we must change anything, we can type the new text.

All *-converted-to-curves*- files are files where the fonts were
converted into curves, so that the final SVG does not depend on
installed fonts, but then the texts are not easily editable.

The -converted-to-curves- files were used as front and back covers for
the ODT files with associated names. These are just samples.

The PDF files are the above ODFs exported to PDF.

I also uploaded the trueno fonts used in the guide front covers.

While I think the covers are usable right now, I may have missed

Kind regards
