Scribus Master Pages mode stays forever (and causes the application to be useless)
Last modified: 2009-05-29 06:42:48 EDT
Description of problem:
No wait to exit Edit->Master Pages
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Trivial: Just , .
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start Scribus
2. choose "Edit"
3. then "Master Pages"
The function works as it should but there is no way to end the "Master Pages" widnow or mode. The "Master Pages" lacks a Close Window icon, and Scribus hangs if you try to quit it by other means.
That there should be a way of ending the "Master Pages" mode, obviously.
What package version do you have installed? You can use "rpm -q scribus" on the command line or the "Add/remove software" GUI tool from the System menu.
I update directly from Rawhide using yum, so presumably pretty much the same scenario as the "Add/remove software GUI".
The behavior is exactly the same for the two recent versions:
As mentioned, extremely easy to reproduce: Start Scribus (new or existing document does not matter), go to Edit -> Master Pages and you are stuck: there is no way to end the Master Pages mode, you cannot quite the window.
I have tested it with scribus-1.3.5-0.12.beta on F-10/x86_64 and I can close the window with pressing <Esc>. I agree it can annoying that there is no close button, but please report this issue upstream at http://bugs.scribus.net
