Summary0001228: Ghost layer with Append Templates
DescriptionAppending a template produces a ghost layer to which a text frame from the original doc is copied. Because of this text looks bad. Deleting the ghost layer from layer window deletes the actual layer where the text was originally but leaves the ghost layer untouched.
Steps To Reproduce1. Open document DocWithNoPgNr.sla
2. Goto Edit->Templates...
3. Choose Append
4. Browse to pageNumber.sla
5. Import template called pgNr
6. Close Edit Templates mode

At this point you'll notice the bad quality of the text.

7. Open layer window. Tools->Layers
(if it was already open, try hitting those up and down arrows to get the ghost layer visible)

Original doc (DocWithNoPageNumber.sla) had only layers "Text" and "Background". Now there's one called "New Layer. Nothing on it." from the pageNumber.sla document.

8. Select layer "New Layer..." from the Layers window. Delete it and say yes when it asks if everything on that layer should be deleted.

Now the text gets deleted which wasn't put on that layer at any point but which was on layer "Text" and instead of deleting layer "New Layer..." layer "Text" gets deleted or if it deletes the correct layer text will be lost with both cases.
TagsNo tags attached.
