Summary 0012007: [MetaBugPatch] Port BAlpha new features to 1.5 so as to merge them with SVN
Revision 2014-07-14 01:59 by Kunda
Description This is a kind of meta bug. All patches will be made in to separate bug report. Intention is to agree on the utility of the patches and port the ones to 1.5 and merged.

BAlpha provides a set of patches that provide new features for 1.4 scribus.
BAlpha's description of this repo in his own words:
> This repository is a collection of patches that I apply on top of my version of Scribus to add a few features I miss. Feel free to use them as well, but be aware that they are very specific to the way I use Scribus, and that they should be considered incomplete (e.g. missing undo/redo functionality, sub-par UI, etc.)
> I maintain them as a Mercurial patch queue on top of a repository that's an HG conversion of the original Subversion repository, but since they're just a bunch of diffs, you can also use them without MQ. They are maintained to be applied to the Version14x branch.

- About BAlpha: http://balpha.de/about/

Briefly :
- Show soft hyphen in the story editor (as red dash) (loosely related to 0010301: show various spaces in SE)

- 0004676 : Prevent hyphenation on on per-word basis (using a soft hyphen before the word).
See also 0010517 : Cezary's patch for same feature.
See also related 0011370 : Cezary's patch for 1.5 for hyphenation control on a per-paragraph basis. Was discussed in 0009848 for 1.4)

- 0003712 Soft shadows (its an often requested feature)

- 0007389 set the page an item belongs to depending on its *center* (and not top left corner) - with the patch the shadow appears in the PDF only, thats a good beginning.

- 0007389 set the page an item belongs to depending on its *center* (and not top left corner) - with the patch the shadow appears in the PDF only, thats a good begining.

- New layer option: Text always flows (text flow accross layers) - it adds an attribute to the SLA file format.

This is a kind of meta bug. I suggest to use a dedicated bug report to propose patch or discuss a specific feature. Action si to port these patches to 1.5 so they can be merged.
