Summary0015602: OLE function?
DescriptionI was wondering if there is some support for OLE-functionality in Scribus. I would like to be able to link text in cells from a spreadsheet document so that when I update text in the spreadsheet document it also updates in my scribus document. (Like the functionality in for example AutoCAD where you can copy a cell from a spreadsheet and then paste it with linking in AutoCAD.)

I have been using the ScribusGenerator with good results, but in my case it would be much easier and smoother if the change was more instant and you didn't have to create a new document for the change to take place. (And so that you did actually see what the content was all the time).
TagsNo tags attached.

There is absolutely none. OLE is basically specific to Windows and such functionnality would not be easily portable or even portable at all to other systems Scribus supports.
