||Very good idea!|
Let me first say that I think that Scribus is a classy piece of software - particularly as it's GPL. I came across the product whilst researching the possibility for a client of mine of completely removing Windoze from a company and replacing everything with Linux/Unix. I'm just as interested in adopting the use of Linux myself but the stumbling block until now has been a lack of Desktop publishing software.
I publish an ever growing number of tri-fold leaflets for various organisations and I would like to suggest a facility for aligning things quickly and easily. I think I'm talking of the same thing as is addressed in bug/issue 0001101 - hence my addition to it.
I presently use Serif PagePlus 10 and this does pretty much what I would like to see in Scribus. In particular I can place three or four different object types one underneath the other, I can then select all or a selection of them by CTRL/Left click and I can then use a menu to align these objects to each other and withing guidelines. The most obvious example is placing a logo at the top of a tri-fold 'page', placing a text box underneath the logo and then a picture underneath the text box, then selecting all three one after the other and finally asking the program to centre all the objects between the nearest two guides. I suppose a useful addition would be to include guides amongst the selection and then use the selected guides instead of the nearest guides but that's really a bit too much to ask, me thinks!
That's it, for now!
The *include guides* or *between guides* idea sounds really good.
Distribute/align on facing pages or even spreads composed of more than 2 pages could be a nice addition.
Suggestion: I think a relationship can be established with bug 0000480
