|Summary||0012516: [PATCH] Port BAlpha layer-option-text-always-flows.patch|
New layer option: Text always flows (text flow across layers) - it adds an attribute to the SLA file format.
Add a new layer property, setting text on the layer to flow around *all* flow-enabled objects that are on flow-enabled layers above *or below* the text layer
Scribus allows for text to flow around an arbitrary object by setting one of the corresponding options in the properties palette's "Shape" tab. However this only works if the flow-around object sits above the text box (either on a higher layer, or on the same layer but higher than the text). Since I sometimes need the text to flow around objects that are on a lower layer, this patch adds a new column of checkboxes to the layer palette (disabled by default).
When you enable this setting on a layer, any text on this layer will flow around all objects that have a "text flows around" setting, regardless of whether these objects sit above or below the text. To clarify: You set this property on the layer that contains the text, not the flow-around object.
When changing this setting, you may have to force Scribus to re-flow the affected text boxes by moving them (just press left arrow then right arrow) or by saving and re-opening the document.
Note that this, too, is a __file format change__. If you save a .sla document where you have enabled this setting for a layer, then open and re-save this document with an unpatched version of Scribus, the setting will be disabled even if you later open the file in the patched version again. Because vanilla Scribus doesn't know about this feature, it ignores the "text always flows" settings when opening a document, and does not persist them when re-saving it.
Proposed Patch: layer-option-text-always-flows.patch
