DescriptionAs in the Summary. In InDesign, I can edit the related data (e.g., a URL married to a QR Code) after its creation. In Scribus I always have to create a new code if something needs to be changed.

I can't think of a way for doing this without totally redoing it.. by using a new Barcode page item that stores the data, then we create the graphic in a different way to now. Even if we tagged the imported PS file with item attributes, editing the data to update the barcode would required a reimport of the graphic and therefore destruction of the metadata - so simply better to redo it from the beginning.

If somebody was to find the inclination, time and energy to reimplement the plugin then I'm happy to assist :-)

Maybe using render frames would work... or again, a totally new method.

... having "vector frames" could imo help here...

(vector frames: it should be possible to load a vector file as such into a frame and its resources (colors...) are kept inside of it... until it's "ungrouped")

a vector frame could then have information on its creator and allow being edited by external applications (the barcode plugin or inkscape)
