Summary0001534: PATCH: Informative user feedback when PDF/X3 and colour management
DescriptionThe attached patch keeps the "Color Management" menu item permanently enabled even if no color management support is compiled in. A dialog is displayed explaining why color management can't be used if appropriate. This should help reduce user confusion ("I don't *have* a Color Management menu item..." etc).

When not available, the PDF/X-3 tab of the PDF export dialog reports why it is not available using a tooltip, along with what to do to enable it. The Security tab gains the same feature.
TagsNo tags attached.

Somehow the if in PDFOpts looks wrong.. esp w/r to Option == 12

I think that rather than using WhatsThis on the colour management menu option I'll use a short explanatory dialog instead.

The explanation of why PDF/X-3 is disabled in export should probably really be done as a replacement frame in the PDF export dialog, but a tooltip will do in 1.2.2 to at least give users some idea what's going on.

Fixed in 1.2.2 (permit me to say: UGH.)

I tweaked scribus.cpp a bit to make Color and Colour more consistent
