Summary0010516: Importing OpenOffice ODT files using Scribus API
DescriptionThis is not really a bug but an important missing feature.

There is a way in Scribus to import an OpenOffice ODT file in a text
frame using GetText when a text frame is selected.

For some reason, I would like to automate the import of several
OpenOffice ODT files inside a scribus document using the Scribus API.
However, I didn't find any command in the API allowing me to do what the
GetText is doing.

Using the mailing list some months ago, several people told me this was a feature they would really be interested in.
TagsNo tags attached.

As I said, I'm not the only one showing interest for that feature. A recent post on the forum:

Any plan for this? I was told on the mailing list this shouldn't be hard to code. ;-)
