|Summary||0013310: [OSX] Insert Barcode ultimately leaves Scribus unusable|
|Description||When I try to insert a barcode (ISBN specifically), I get the dialog box, fill in the info, then click OK. At this point, the dialog box goes away, but I'm unable to do anything in Scribus now. Any click produces a "beep" indicating I'm not allowed to click there, and all menu items are grayed out, including "Exit Scribus"|
|Steps To Reproduce||from a suitable document, click Insert > Barcode|
fill in the necessary info. I was using 978-0-9830680-9-9, with the text in the barcode.
click OK. Mouse pointer changes to something, like it's expecting me to place the barcode. Any click anywhere generates the "not allowed" noise. Scribus has to be forced to close at this point.
Though it's not recommended, if you install 1.5.1 (bleeding edge) you'll see how barcodes just received a huge update. I'm using Scribus 1.5.1 for production because i'm not printing professionally with it. If you want to give it a try on OSX, install Scribus via Homebrew. Read the warnings first so you know what you're getting in to.
Confirmed on OSX 10.10.5 1.5.1 r20421
Would assign to Terry Burton but he's not on the list.
As for now, this never happened to me with 1.5 or 1.5.1 svn on ubuntu.
But for sbd not accustomed to creating vector-images with scribus, suddenly getting that strange vector-image-creation mouse pointer is surprising and can induce confusions.
