I posted this in the forums and have had it confirmed. I'm not registered to
post bugs directly in the bugtracker so I'm reporting it here..
1.4.0rc5 on Windows XP (+ Debian Linux according to R Meho)
I came across some odd behaviour which is quite easily recreated:
1/ create 4 text frames on a blank new page and add text to each one.
2/ group them.
3/ rename the group
4/ select one of the text frames (I used the outline dialog for this), and
try to change the item's level either through the item:level menu or through
the properties dialog. (might not happen for the first or last in the group)
- The page goes blank
- the item disappears from the outline dialog
- the group's name reverts to it's original name
- a polygon appears in the group (shown in the outline dialog) with the
name given to the group in step 3 above.
I've attemted to recreate the same problem in 1.5.0svn on Ubuntu (latest
snapshot) but the behvaiour is different. The attempt to change levels
simply does nothing.
I've had a look though the changelog and can't find any mention of this
being changed so I don't know whether this is a difference between platforms
