Summary0013208: Import features only imports 1 page of .sla document properly on Scribus 1.4.2
DescriptionWhenever I use the feature Page --> Import in Scribus, only the first page of my target document gets imported. Pages 2 and up only have empty text frames imported. The document I am trying to import was saved using the same version of Scribus and has an extension of .sla.
Steps To Reproduce1. Have any Scribus non-blank .sla document with more than 1 page ready
2. Create a blank document of the same type (e.g. single page, double-sided, etc). Use the same dimensions. It does not matter if "automatic text frames" is checked; the import will still fail.
3. On the blank document, go to Pages --> Import. Choose the non-blank multipage .sla document. Under the "Pages" box, type a page range (e.g. 1-100). Click Import.
4. If Scribus prompts you, agree to let it create more pages.
5. Wait while Scribus imports
6. When Scribus is done, note that only page 1 has been imported properly. Pages 2 and upward will appear blank. Upon closer inspection, it will be clear that the text frames from the source document WERE imported, but their contents were not imported properly. Only page 1's text frame and contents will have been imported properly.
TagsNo tags attached.
