Summary 0011558: 3 Efficiency Features to improve Image Manager
Revision 2019-10-24 14:55 by JLuc
Description When opening a file with lots of moved images (= with broken links), one has to attribute again each frame to its original image.
For example, this happen when opening an IDML file : all images are in a "Links" folder.

The image manager allows to do this BUT when there is only one answer to the search, it doesnt select this image but ask.

This feel painfull in the described case.
It could be much improved with following features :

- when there is only one search result image, allways pre-select it since there is no other choice (and enable the user to then click the OK button or not if not wished). It will avoid one totally useless click each time.

- propose the option to automatically "link frame with found image when there is only one". That will help in many cases.

- propose the option to automatically "link all unlinked frames in document, with found images in same folder". It will provide the user with the nice feeling that scribus understands the job being done and is very helping.
