[Scribus] Perhaps another stupid question ...

Hi Louis, 

I was thinking about your problem and came up with a design that I think would 
allow easy doing of this (see my comment):


For newspaper/manazine I will suggest another approach, that is having a 
property for masters elements that allow editing. 

I am currently thinking about a solution that would have a complex but easy 
approach for newpapers, that is automatic flowing of text but with 
rows/columns settings. For example, I would approach this as the following:
1. Import text (NOT insert from frame)
2. Click on the top-left corner where you want to flow it (or another, 
depending on the language).
3. Select the "spreading", that is, the number of columns and the number of 
rows used.

I also am thinking about having a solution for a shared text repository (like 
the Text Library in RFE 245 above) that would be used to streamline the 
author-->editor/reviewer-->layouter process.

Tell me what you think about these ideas. :D
