Summary0011346: The Item menu is too bloated
DescriptionThe Scribus Item menu is on the way to surpass XPress in terms of menu clutter in its Item menu. On Linux it's already using 2 columns, and under eComStation it may be even 3 by now. Here are some suggestions to clean this up:

1) Move "Delete" to the "Edit" menu.

2) Create an entry "Duplicate/Transform" with the sub-entries "Duplicate", "Multiple Duplicate", "Transform".

3) Create an entry "Grouping" with the sub-entries "Group", "Ungroup", "Adjust Group".

4) Create an entry "Locking" with the sub-entries "Lock Item", "Lock Item Size", "Unlock Item", "Unlock Size".

5) Move the "Table" entry to a separate "Table" item in the menu bar (many users of word processors will be familiar with this). The sub-entries of the current are already of a similar size to "Extras"

6) Create an entry "Adjust" with the sub-entries "Frame height to Text", "Frame to Image", "Image to Frame".

7) Create an entry "Image" with all the current image-related entries from "Update Image" to "Preview Settings".

8) Create an entry "Text Frame Links" with the sub-entries ranging from the current "Link Text Frames" to "Unlink Text Frames with Text Cut".

9) Move *all* Path-related entries into sub-entries of a "Paths" entry.

10) Move all Weld-related entries into sub-entries of a "Weld" entry.

11) Move "Update Marks" to "Extras".

12. Move the spellchecking entries to "Extras".
