Hi William

When I first started using Scribus I used to fret about what the text frames were called, putting in my own names and so on. I design a poetry magazine in newspaper format, so each page can have two or three text frames. They also get moved from page to page, so renaming would have to be frequent.

So now I'm on Issue 4 of the magazine. I realise I don't even look at the name of the polygon or text frame - I let Scribus name them for me. The name is a convenience for the user, but not something you need to be conscious of if it doesn't suit you.

Hope that helps.

Kind regards

Nicki Griffin
