It seems that Scribus is not aware of this loss.

It would greatly help if Scribus was aware of that loss,
and would detect and stop the user attempt to do a mistake
instead of accepting it ...
and getting itself lost
(with this black hole phenomenum that destroy the doc ability to be further used).

Maybe this is a type of awareness that is globally missing,
but would lead to a more usable Scribus ?
