Summary0001172: Document Hierarchy
DescriptionIntroduction of an hierarchy within Scribus that can be used for page numbering, index generation, table of illustrations, etc.

Project > Document > Chapter > Section > Page > Frame > Paragraph

Project would be the root of the hierarchy. It can contain multiple individual .sla documents. I think it would be a good idea to define a project as a folder, so Scribus can keep track of the documents than are part of a project easier, and archive/tar the folder as one file for portability.
Additional InformationFor example:

Chapter 1.14
Syntax: Chapter <chapter>.<section>

Figure 12.2
Syntax: Figure <chapter>.<imagecount>
TagsNo tags attached.

chrisoph, what do you think, is this in any way related or perhaps even a duplicate of 0002107?

I don't think the featuere is absolutely necessary, if working with document objects is better documented. This is probably more flexible than the TeX/word processor approach.

The issue is, however, related, in the sense that master documents will need to be able to handle existing sections and document items.

Christoph, what do you mean by "if working with document objects is better documented"? Why would a heirarchy not be required for numbering?
