[Scribus] Usability Blocks Summary (mainly linked text frames)
Sat Feb 23 11:39:49 CET 2008
The previous discussion about "is scribus usable ?"
didnt find a conclusion in the thread.
So please my personnal conclusion :
why scribus is not usable for me.
Please note that these are not expert-use bugs
nor highly sophisticated feature requests.
They deal with basic operations on a couple of textpages.
BLOCKING : all related to linked text frames
bug with action and display on multiple linked frames
not possible to select text accross multiple linked frames
vanishing edit mode when moving inside same text to another frame
of the linked frames set.
- lack of undertandable undo feature
or as an alternative :
add "save 5 last versions of file" option
character style in property window
is not appropriate when selection not empty.
uncomplete fonts handling with black hole behaviour
At that point, I stopped trying to do my job with Scribus...
I would like to do so however !
I would be glad to hear about
other users having the same concern...
and i think it would be usefull if other users would express
theyr own blocking points.
