[Scribus] Text frames linked "backwards"
Sat Nov 22 21:44:55 CET 2003
I've tested this several times. It seems that Scribus (cvs
1.1.3) can't handle reliably text frames that are linked
"backwards." Let's say I'm trying to layout a newsletter where
some article begins on Page 8. The article continues on Page 7
and then Page 6, etc. So I create a link from the text frame on
Page 8 to the text frame on Page 7, and a link from that text
frame to the text frame on Page 6, and so on. In other words I'm
trying to flow text backwards from Page 8 to Page 1.
Sometimes I'll see text on Pages 7, 6 etc; sometimes I don't. I
know I've linked the frames "properly" because after I, say,
resize one or two of the text frames, the text appears. A
similar behavior affects the print preview. When I try to print
(to file), a crash often occurs.
