Summary0007754: Import contour line
DescriptionThere should be the possibility to import the contour line for a shape from a file (for example SVG).
Additional InformationSince scribus' shape editing possibilities are very limited and likely to stay so for quite some time, it would be very useful to import also contours lines from external applications. When working with very complex imported shapes changing contour lines is very tedious. I currently simple create a second invisible dummy object for this purpose as a workaround.
TagsNo tags attached.

Scribus 1.3.5svn currently import svg and ps clip paths. The contour line is somewhat scribus specific and is neither a svg nor a ps/eps feature.
