Yes, I totally agree. I was testing on a document for which I had no need to
use a TOC at all. And I know that planned work saves time :)

I know this present system can be - and in fact is - used but it seems to be
error-prone. If I had an option to select a value from the dropdown (a value
being simply the content of a particular frame), then it would be less work
and more happiness :) Suppose I attribute TOC to a frame called
Introduction. So I manually type Introduction as the TOC value. But what if
I later decide to change the text frame to say Preface rather than
Introduction? Should I forget to update the TOC value, I will have Preface
in the document and Introduction in the TOC. 

Having said that, please do not take it as criticism. I am very impressed
with Scribus and people behind it.

Warm regards,
