Summary0011027: Pressing OK for Default File > Doc Setup values changes margins for no apparent reason
DescriptionWhen I make a pdf document out of a Scribus document, everything looks normal in the PDF. But, when I click on the OK button in the Document settings dialog, strange things happen. In the Scribus document nothing changes (as I can see). But when I export the document as PDF, margins have changed, fonts are different, etc. This happens everytime I click this button. It doesn't matter if I change somthing in the dialog or not.
When I press escape or click the button to cancel, everything is normal.
This means that you're not able to change ANY document settings. Please fix this?!
Steps To ReproduceOpen a document (see enclosed one for example).
Export to pdf and look at the margins and fonts etc.
Then go to File --> document settings (or whatever it is named in English. It's the one below export).
Click the ok button.
Export to pdf and look again. Compare with the other pdf document. The margins and some fonts are completely differnt now.
TagsNo tags attached.
