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

- http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=6242
bug with action and display on  multiple linked frames

- http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=6241
not possible to select text accross multiple linked frames

- http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=6265
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 :
- http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=6253
add "save 5 last versions of file" option


- http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=6235
character style in property window
is not appropriate when selection not empty.

- http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=6740
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.
