|0015175||Scribus||Story Editor / Text Frames||public||2018-02-27 16:20||2019-06-04 20:56|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||1.5.4.svn|
|Summary||0015175: Adding a "Link annotation" with no contents generates a "Empty text frame" error in preflight verifier|
|Description||Currently I believe the only solution to add web links to pieces of text (or image or any item) is with the "Link annotation" frame.|
It turns out that this frame is actually a text frame, except that you can't edit it with double click (this opens the annotation properties) as usual. So you are force to "Edit contents of frame" (E) or use the story editor.
That's a first usability issue since this is not made at all obvious that this is a text frame and that we are supposed to fill it if we don't want errors in the preflight verifier.
The second issue is that often you actually don't want to fill the frame with text!
Sometimes it makes sense anyway, but other times:
- the link may not be text (you may want to link an image or whatnot).
- Even when the link is text, it may be text inside a bigger text (i.e. transform just a few words into links, and you certainly don't want to have these few words floating around in a separate frame, which would be a horror for the layout and for later copy-paste in the PDF, etc.).
So for these case, you'd just want your empty "Link annotation" frame that you place over the text or image.
Could we make so that "Link annotation" do not generate "Empty text frame" errors?
|Steps To Reproduce||- Create a "Link annotation" frame.|
- Hit the "Preflight verifier" button.
Result: you get an error.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||P.S.: actually I just made a test, and when additing text into the Link Annotation, it was not displayed in the exported PDF. So that makes even less sense to make an error out of it in the preflight verifier (this will just be text polluting your visual space with text not actually printed).|
