[Scribus] Some improvements? :-)

1. Regarding indents on paragraphs:
When writing a new paragraph, I want all subsequent linebreaked lines to
be indented. This is easily possible, thanks to the style possibilities.
But I would want a little improvemnet to this, because the *first* line,
the one starting imediatly after the heading, should *not* be indented,
but using the same style for the whole text will not accomplish this, I
then have to either change the first paragraph manually, or apply two
different but identical styles, only different concerning this.
Maybe I have missed out on something, therefore I am sending it here
first, but if not, I wpuld want the following improvement:
Add a chackbox like this:
|_| Not on the first paragraph
When checked, this above mentioned very first line would *not* be
indented, only each of the following first lines of the next paragraphs.
Am I making myself clear? :-)
2 Concerning the barcode generator
This tool is really great, but still I will ask for some small
2a. Change EAN -> GTIN
The former EAN is now named GTIN, should be changed in the GUI, perhaps
GTIN 13 (EAN 13)
to help the users catch up with the change?
2b. Add the convertation of ISSN-numbers
As of now, I can do this by manually adding 977 in front of my issn,
then two digits for the number of my publication and use GTIN-13. But
then I cant become the ISSN-number as text over the barcode :-(
2c. Make GTIN 13 + Add-on in one operation
Still concerning barcodes:
Would it be possible to also use the so called ?add-on? (=EAN 2, I
think)? That is an extra barcode after the standard barcode (for
instance after GTIN 13) to show the number of the publication.
Some distributors (for instance ours, Narvesen in Norway :-) asks for this.
As is now, I see I can first make my GTIN 13 and then an add-on and then
put them beside each other, but I consider this a workaround (or am I
missing something? If this is possible in one step already, please tell
me how :-)
3. Saving the scrapbook-content as a file
Perhaps a real bug, not only an asking for improvments:
I am not able to save the content of my scrap book.
I can look through directories when I press ?save?, but ?OK? gives no
effect (is grayed out) and the windows does not close itself.
