Nice catch, Peter. I Can confirm some of these on OSX.
What I couldn't reproduce was 'Font Size' of Menus in Preferences. It responded successfully.

(A) step to reproduces this problem :
   (1)Create doc
   (2)Go to file > Document Setup > Size
   (3)On "Width Spin Box" change width.
   (4)Click "OK".
   (5)No change on page width.

(B) reproduces this problem:
  (1)Create doc
  (2)Go to file > Document Setup > Size
  (3)On "Width Spin Box" change width.
  (4)Click on "apply change to all pages"
  (4)Click "OK".
  (5)Now ,we see change on page width.
We see on :
(A)No change in page width.
(B)change in page width.
So,When click on "apply change to all pages "or "apply change to master pages" then Click "OK" any change on width/height of page are apply otherwise not apply.

aliyousuf: good list of steps to reproduce!

they are not really on topic for this ticket but shows an issue that is worth to be solved.

A: the values in the document setup are used for the future pages of the current document.
it's not really evident that it's that way, but coherent with the way scribus works in other similar cases.


B: of course... this show that we very likely need a further checkbox "Apply to current page".

can you please open a new ticket for this ("add a "apply to current page" option to document settings > page size") and propose a patch for it?

in the future (as already stated in many places multiple times by different people) we need a better way to manage the scribus wide, document specific and local to the context settings... but that's a bigger topic and we don't have a solution there, yet!

i try to re-explain this specific issue (since it's not easy to grasp it without looking at the video):

- if you change a value in the document settings and then press the "enter" key, the dialog will close but the value is not saved.

- you have to leave the field (by clicking on another field or using the tab key) in order to scribus to notice the change and save it.

- if you press the "Ok" button, the field will lose focus and the correct value is stored.

the solution to this problem is make sure that scribus notices the change before saving the values.
this has been done for another dialog not so long ago for another similar issue, but i cannot recall which dialog it was.
having a look at the patch for that issue might help solving this one.

This works well! If "apply change to all pages "or "apply change to master pages" value not selected, setting changes the new pages.
