Hi All

Just a thought...

I'm having problems with Story Editor crashing Scribus all the time (Ver 
1.3.8) - and have reported this on this list. The reply was to rather 
work in an external editor (ie OpenOffice Word). I have been doing this 
and for general editing there are some benefits I find.

Then a thought occurred to me.

When working with Graphics in your document you can link the "Edit 
Graphic" option, from a right-click, to whatever Editor you want. And 
this works VERY well!! Why not do the same for "Editing Text"? I'm not 
meaning to get rid of Story Editor completely, although it might be an 
option, but I feel that a link like this would prove very useful to a 
lot of users. Right-click on Text Box, select Edit and you are in your 
WP. Do your text complete with all fonts, and other attributes and Save 
and it's all in the Text Box!!

Worth a thought I think.

Ian Whitfield.
