Summary0011466: PDF export: Replace UI string and trigger a warning instead
DescriptionWe've been shipping Scribus with the following UI string for years: "Embed PDF && EPS Files (Experimental)". While it's true that we have tooltip that informs users about the current limitations, it's possible to switch off tooltips. It also makes Scribus look unprofessional.

IMHO, it would be better to remove "(Experimental)" and let Scribus display a warning about the possible consequences of simply embedding files.

Christoph, how do suggest the warning be displayed ?

I suggest a symbol the implies 'Experimental) that be put next to preference in PDF Preferences. Like a test-tube or a Laboratory vial.
