Summary0012015: Multiple file selection in file selectors and the Picture Browser
DescriptionOne of the great features of InDesign is the possibility to select multiple files to be opened/"placed". It would be great to have something similar in Scribus, too.

Given the current state of the code, it might make sense to enable this for

- File > Open (every selected file will be opened in a separate window/tab)

- File > Import > Get Vector File (insert icon remains active until all drawings have been placed in the document)

- Right-click > Paste File (insert icon remains active until all drawings have been placed in the document)

- Picture Browser (an insert icon for subsequent placement would be needed; drag'n'drop is already working).
Additional InformationLooking beyond 1.5.0, I wonder whether it'd be possible to re-use/re-arrange the code from the Picture Browser, Insert > Frames (for text/pixmaps), and right-click > Paste File into something as intuitive as InDesign's "Place" command.

0011626 "Improve Import management" patch would add a multiple file import and place feature that looks close to what you to ask for.

It's close, but it doesn't cover everything.

Im not sure to understand fully your request since i dont use In Design.
As for 0011626 : it enables to select a bunch of various type files at once (texts, images, vectors) and places each of them where the user wants it.
However, it doesnt change the "paste" behaviour : is this the only missing part ?
