Summary0001562: "Scale to frame size" locks the image in the frame: no more free positionning
DescriptionWhen the option "Scale to frame size" is checked, there is no way to freely and simply move the image around within its frame.

What I understand (and I agree!) is the proportions have to be fixed to that image frame because this is the purpose of this option. But I think preventing users from *moving* the image *at that scale* into the image frame is a bit restrictive.
TagsNo tags attached.

I played with this a bit and the current behaviour seems sane to me. If I scale an image to a frame, I want the image locked to that frame.

The workaround if you will is trivial. Switch back to free scaling and the image can be moved within a frame. Scribus is 'well-behaved' in that it does not adjust the scaling any further - unless - you explicitly change it.

I certainly would put this as a feature request, not a bug honestly..At this point, I cannot recommend a change to current stable 1.2.2cvs. I am open to be persauded, as always.

Bumping to 1.3 as a feature.

Disagree. Scale to frame size means just that, does not relate to positioning within the frame.

what about automatically switching to free scaling if user requests to move the picture?

cbradney, plinell: "acknowledged" or "won't fix"?

jo-hannes' idea makes the most sense to me.

spot on

I'm still of the opinion that theres free scaling/scaled to frame size and that whether its locked to the frame's origin is a separate matter and this restriction just shouldn't be there.

Exactly. We don't expect something to be locked unless we locked it.

yes, i completely agree.

me (and my girlfriend, too) think that the image frame misses one important option:

to scale/crop/move an image _inside_ the frame and then being able to scale that frame as itself by dragging it`s borders - with the contents then resizing appropriate (proportional or not proportional)

there is no easy way to do this now - typically you need to rework that image in an external program (gimp or whatelse)

the current behaviour seems a little bit too restrictive - sort of "all or nothing". If i set "scale to frame size" it always refers to the complete image.

Scribus already crops by the way..

you mean you select properties->edit shape->move-nodes?

yes, we can crop with that - but did you ever try to resize that cropped image then?

with "free scaling", the frame and the shape scales, but not the image inside.
with "scale to frame" the _whole_ image will always be "refitted" automatically to the frame.
what is missing here is some "lock/unlock" option.

No, just move the resize handles

Reminder on the road to 1.4 (please also let me know if this is ok to remind!)
