Summary0015172: double-click + keyboard adjusting image frames doesn't set "free scaling"
DescriptionYesterday, I made a whole bunch of pages with images, and the workflow was "double-click, and then use arrows, shift-arrows & alt-arrows to adjust the image in the frame.

Imagine my surprise when I reopened the document today and all the images were fit to the boxes again.

Turns out that using the mouse/keyboard in this way doesn't set the image frame to "Free Scaling" despite having just done free scaling.
Steps To Reproduceadd an image frame
add an image to it
double-click it
use keyboard to scale/move image in frame
scaling/moving is gone
TagsNo tags attached.

Tested Linux Mint 18.3; r22413 (1.5.4svn)

I can't reproduce. Document save saves the changes.

So maybe it's fixed then - I can definitely reproduce on 1.5.3 with a blank default document, adding an image frame (it gets default scaling "To Frame Size") and then saving/closing/reopening the document loses the adjustments made to the image.

I'll try to see if I can get svn up & running to check there.

I can reproduce this on 1.5.4-svn (r22410 I think, I used github), can I change the version on the bug somehow?

I can't seem to edit anything above (subject, steps to reproduce, etc.) but let me attach a screencast.

Oh ... the scaling there was done with alt+right-arrow

Ok, I mean.
I can reproduce this.

So: The scribus doesn't disable hotkeys in "to frame size" mode.

Yeah, ok, you could see it that way around too. From a workflow perspective, personally, I'd prefer it to just change to "free scaling" mode automatically so I don't have to scroll around there in the properties to enable free scaling, but disabling the hotkeys would avoid the "data loss".

FWIW, everything including exporting a PDF worked fine, so at least I have a document to redo my changes from :-)

Fixed too. The scaling mode is now changed to "free scaling" if needed.

Very nice, thanks!

Will using an svn snapshot have an adverse effect on my document, like not being able to open it with a release later?

administrator   ~0045007

With current snapshots there are several risks:
- a file saved with current 1.5.4.svn snapshots will not open anymore in 1.5.3 due to a change in the way colors are stored in sla file
- a file saved with a specific snapshot may not open with a previous snapshot or previous release
- a file saved with a specific snapshot may render differently in a later snapshot
- text layout can change from one snapshot to another, this is also true anyway for any 1.5.x release as 1.5.x is a development branch

However it is generally expected that a file saved with a snapshot will open with later snapshots.
