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.

I would like to provide crash information, but do not know how to do this. I am running this on mac osx. Please advise.

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

Bah... suddenly I can't recreate this. Any help to reproduce would be helpful

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.
