Is there some interest to fix regressions here? (At least, there wasn't
any three years ago..)
Being too tired to downgrade scribus back to 18.104.22.168 all the time in
order to maintain some pdf forms, here's another attempt to tackle the
Documents (from 22.214.171.124):
This form works fine with acrobat reader, if created with 126.96.36.199, but
occasional attempts editing it with 188.8.131.52, 1.3.5*, and now 1.4.0rc3
- the colors are (slighly) distorted
- the line breaks are wrong
Documents (loaded and saved with 1.4.0rc3):
Users usually select a receiver from drop down, which is displayed
below, when the drop down looses focus. Then they fill some fields and
add some numbers to the "Anzahl" column.
If the sla is edited with 1.4.0rc, the thick line and the background
color changed, but this is hopefully fixable for me (At least, it looks
consistent in scribus and acrobat reader). Much more importantly, the
line break handling changed (again):
now all test fields add a newline in front of each line in the resulting
pdf (in the drop down _and_ the text fields), but OTOH, the text
including newlines is displayed just fine in scribus itself.
A minor issue is the vertical text alignment in the single line text
fields (now top, centered before).
It would be very kind, if somebody could have a look into these issues,
especially into the newline handling.
Thanks in advance,
