Summary0003622: Allow Scribus to search for additional directories for docs
DescriptionIn current versions of Scribus, additional docs like Niyam's tutorial have to be copied into the "tutorials" directory to be found by the help browser. It would be fine to enable the use of other directories as well. That way, different versions of Scribus could share a set of docs, provided, the menu.xml file is in the docs' directory.

I'm all for it, it should be easier to install additional docs. Two proposals:

1. An additional setting in the Prefs, where users could define the "Additional docs" directory to be searched for tutorials.


2. Scribus should search $home/.scribus/tutorials for additional docs.

In both cases, Scribus could use the current mechanism of searching the subdirectories for menu.xml. Craig?

And system wide directory as a third option/addition: usr/share/doc/scribus

>>What about Win32?

They have their $home/.scribus too, or at least sth similar :)

I know ;) I was thinking of the system wide directory for docs. "All Users"?
