IIRC, Franz introduced the current layout a while back just for testing purposes, and ever since it seems no-one found the time to revert it back to its original layout, which was more in line with rest of the UI.

Well here’s hoping it gets changed soon- anything that saves a mouse click is worth it.

An Update on the spinning ball of death:

I was still experiencing the spinning ball when working on the supposed clean file that I created afresh in Scribus.  So, I was trying to select a small frame and found it difficult - I then switched on ‘make frame edges visible’  - OMG what is that frame overlapping two pages doing there !!!

It was on one of the Master pages and must have got there buy a Select All process when copying frames form the IDML files

Now deleted, I have a very responsive Scribus again

I have a long experience with DTP that goes back to before computers, and I still maintain that there is ALWAYS a reason why these problems occur.  You just have to look for the problem

Keep up the good work

kind regards
