is a script I made named ExtractText or something similar which will
scan the current Scribus document, then save to a text file a listing
of all text and image frames with their contents, in the case of images
the complete path to the image.
If all you're interested in is the image names, you could delete the part that checks for text frames.

python logic involved is pretty simple and the Scribus commands haven't
changed since I wrote it, so it should work even with newer versions.


Thanks for the information. Where is the script? I may try it. However, what would be more useful to me would be an extra line in the "Properties" window that would give the full path to the image. Would this be a possible addition to Scribus?
