|Priority||normal||Severity||minor||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Fixed in Version||1.5.6.svn|
|Summary||0011558: 3 Efficiency Features to improve Image Manager|
|Description||When opening a file with lots of moved images (= with broken links), one has to attribute again each frame to its original image.|
For example, this happen when opening an IDML file : all images are in a "Links" folder.
The image manager allows to do this BUT when there is only one answer to the search, it doesnt select this image but ask.
This feel painfull in the described case.
It could be much improved with following features :
- when there is only one search result image, allways pre-select it since there is no other choice (and enable the user to then click the OK button or not if not wished). It will avoid one totally useless click each time.
- propose the option to automatically "link frame with found image when there is only one". That will help in many cases.
- propose the option to automatically "link all unlinked frames in document, with found images in same folder". It will provide the user with the nice feeling that scribus understands the job being done and is very helping.

Now, it requires 5 clicks on 3 different dialogs or windows for *each* image to be relinked to its source.
The 3 different dialogs are :
1) window manager (click 'search')
2) search dialog (click 'Begin search')
3) Result dialog (click to select unique image in dropdown list + click 'Select' button)
The search dialog would include the new
"Link frame with found image when there is only one result"
option as a checkbox.
As for the "Link other unlinked frames to other unique images found" option, it could also appear on this search dialog.
This feature could also (and maybe better) be called through a new "reLink" button on the image manager main window, on the left side of the bottom bar with the "Close" on the right.
As for the first feature it does not require any new interface element.
When there is only one search result image, it should simply be automatically pre-selected since there is no other alternative file.
