Hi Nicki,

As you know, each time we create a text box, Scribus assigns a name to that
text box. A name we can change to anything we desire.

When I began using Scribus about three weeks ago, the first text box I
created in a new document was assigned the name text1 and subsequent text
boxes were assigned the names text2, text3, text4, etc. etc. etc.

 As I created each of these text boxes I renamed them to something more
meaningful, just as you do, and there is no reason to be concerned about
the order in which the various text boxes were created.

Recently, however, the first text box in a new document, in fact the only
text box in a new document, is assigned the name text2 !!

I’m not going to lose any sleep over this but it certainly seems odd to me
that Scribus is now assigning the name text2 to the first and only text box
I create in a new document.
