Summary0011626: [PATCH] Improve Import management
DescriptionThis patch come next to image loader.
To be more uniform, all files can be import with a single option instead of : "import image", "import text", "append text", "import vector file", there is just an "Import" option

Through preference, we can select if we want:
For oneclick frame creation: ask for a dimension, insert with doc size, insert with a default dimension

Undo/redo are added too.

This is tested by jluc

More tests have revealed some non-crashing issue in the preference management.
See 0011637

Maybe we could also make it easier for former InDesign users by adding a "Place" command?

new patch is available. I only fix what we can call issue (bad unitRatio) but I prefer seeing it in the trunk before doing more work on it. Also, I may do really smallest patch later (so easier to review for you bradney).

I did first tests of that patch. I encountered following issues :

1) Text import related dialog shown when importing images
- File > Get File
- Select several images (all png in my case)
- After first image is imported, a setting dialog related to text import is shown to user

2) Image following mouse cursor quite loosely
- File > Get File
- Select several images (all png in my case)
- Image previews are shown at some varying distance from text cursor, would be probably better if that distance was kept constant

The "text import dialog" issue didnt occure when i first tested the unitloader branch so its probably a little bug that was introduced in latest fix.

I see now that this "unified import" feature would be really usefull.

Unfriendly is the requirement to use 2 completely different menu entries to import "normal" images and "svg" images : Image import is "Insert" menu, when svg import is in "File" > "vector import" submenu.
This patch does a lot more, but basicaly unifying the image import and the svg import would be a great usability improvement.
