Summary0010792: improvements to document setup > sections
Description- if the last existing section starts at the n-th page, it should not be possible to create a new section (so it should not be possible to add a new section if there is only one page in the document)
- when adding a new section it should automatically start at the page n -1.
- when creating a new section, its values for "style", "field width" and "fill character" should be copied from the (previously) last section
- the "From" and "To" text fields should be replaced by one "Start at" drop down listing all possible pages (not all pages: it should take in consideration the other existing sections; so if there are three sections, the second section can't start at the first page nor at the page n; the first section always starts at the first page, no need for a dropdown)

one big question: what happens when pages get deleted?
- if a section gets deleted, should there be a warning or should scribus silently remove that section that now does not have any pages anymore?

on top of it, there is a bug in the current implementation

- when creating a new section, the "field width" field is automatically set to 467...
TagsNo tags attached.

cezary, i've assigned it to you, since you are currently working on this dialog... as usual: if you have no interest / time to work on it, just deassign the task. (or better, in this case assign it to me!)

btw, it's not necessary to modify the way the sections are stored in the file or the internal structure... just the dialog :-)
