Summary0012515: Suggestion to improve indication that Scribus is in Master Pages edit mode
DescriptionWhen I first started using Scribus, I had no idea what master pages were or how to use them. I didn't really know how to distinguish between normal edit mode and master page mode, save for a few indications:
1) Arrange page window would make it self prominent
2) 'End Edit' button shows up bottom left
3) I would exit the edit mode without making a change and scribus would exit back to the page it was on and I would see nothing, obviously.

My idea would be to make a more noticeable state change when editing in 'Master Page'. Something that would look unintrusive any yet give a more visual confirmation that we are indeed in a Master Page right now.
* Colored vertical bar emphasizing Master Page mode (see attached)
* A semi-transparent diagonal repeating watermark across the background of the canvas saying 'Master Page Mode'
TagsNo tags attached.
