Summary0012464: Preview mode should allways be in "Edit preview" mode
DescriptionWhen preview mode would allways be in "Edit preview" mode, then the "edit in preview mode" button could be taken off the UI and its place could be freed.

Why 2 preview modes ?
Why have this no-edit mode when edit-mode looks the same + enables to move items ?
When sbd wants to view and not being able to edit, he can create a PDF.
It seems there is no use for a no-edit view mode. Or i'm not aware of it.

Hence preview mode should allways be in "Edit preview" mode

What is the function of having 2 modes of preview ?

i think the idea is to abuse of scribus as a viewer...

imo a bad idea.

personally, i'm for removing that functionality and revert back to the previous status: always in edit mode.

if one wants to show some slides, she should use a pdf viewer.

alternative: the previous behavior should be the default one (a one button click / one key press to get into the editable preview mode).

also, i'm more and more convinced that the preview button (the eye!) should get back into the status bar...
