Note: I get the same problem when I have a document and Save As a new document name. When I close that document and then open up either the original or the newly named version, the text is no longer flowing across all the textframes. I have to relink across all pages. This is a small problem with a 36 page document I am working on. My next project is 180 pages and this will be five times more painful.

I can't reproduce the issue on Linux, so it seems to be a OS X-related problem.

Also, it would be interesting to know why Scribus crashes in the first place. Using bt or the Mac OS X equivalent might be helpful.

Jeffmcneill, I'm on MacOSX, can you upload an example .sla file for me to test this?

I've encountered this (on 10.8.5 1.5.0svn r19425) but without a crash. Just saving and opening file found that linked text frames were broken and only first text frame showing text. Trying to reproduce.

Confirmed on 10.8.5 1.5.0svn r19425
Uploaded a file with 3 linked text boxes.
Added 'Sample Text' and then I crashed Scribus purposely using 0012538

This issue does not require a crash to unlink the text boxes. One can simply close Scribus and then reopen it and the link chain will be broken.

I know this issue happened since i last tested it in Aug. even if the .sla file doesn't reflect that. I will attempt to test and upload an .sla that demonstrates this in the next few days. In the meantime is there anyone that can recreate and demonstrate this bug?

Uploaded broken-links-example.sla that shows the problem.

Steps to recreate:
1) Open broken-links-example.sla
2) Notice that page 1 has text but none of the other pages do. They other pages have text boxes in them.
3) Start to link that text box from page 1 to page 2.
4) Link page 2 to page 3
5) repeat step 4 until there are no more pages
6) save the .sla and close the .sla project
7) reopen the saved .sla and observe the links do not persist

Unblocking and de-assigning target version. I will keep this assigned to me just in case this bug rears it's ugly head sometime in the future. On that day I there will be vindication
