Thanks to all the responses regarding resizing image frames.
The only thing I would add, is that although Scribus is targetted as a
Professional level DTP tool, it would still be handy to have some kind
of tooltip, or mention of how to scale the images uniformly in a status
bar area, just like Inkscape do. Inkscape provide this extra info along
with most of the functions in their lower status bar. The info changes
accordingly to the tool used. I've been using Scribus since vers 0.5 and
I'd never cottoned on to how to scale images proportionately. Sometimes
making these extra little bits of info available dynamically makes a big
difference to the real usability of an application.
