Summary0014844: Scribus crashes when trying to make text flow around object (image frame)
DescriptionI was showing Scribus to a new user and we were doing a very humble example document. When trying to activate "use contour line" to make the sample text flow around a photo (in an image frame), Scribus crashed totally, i.e. was not even visible in Task Manager.

We "recovered from crash" re-did the last few steps before the crash and saved by "collect for output". I then copied this project to my own computer and it crashes too (same Scribus 1.5.3) when doing the same command:
Steps To ReproduceF6: Go to topmost layer. Select the goat-photo.

Open F2 properties window and go to Shape tab.

Click on "use contour line" ---> crash
Additional InformationThis is the first time on my computer that Scribus crashes at all. I have been working with several 1.5.3svn from late 2016 and from 2017 and have always found Scribus very stable. So I am shocked. I hope this report is helpful. I am available to provide more information, if needed. I will try uploading the entire "collected for output" including fonts and colour-profiles, just to be complete.


When the crash first happened, the new user had freshly installed Scribus 1.5.3 on her computer and had NOT done a reboot (as the installer did not even suggest rebooting). So we suspected that the installation was "not complete in some way". But I can reproduce the crash on my own mashine and I have already worked a lot with 1.5.3 and have done many reboots.
