Summary0015724: make the unlink tool a single click one
Descriptioncurrently, the unlink tool is only active when at least a text frame is selected.
for the action to take place, one need to click on a second frame.

i did not test the behavior when multiple text frame are selected but it's a rather awkward situation.

i suggest that the behavior to be changed in the following way:

- the tool is inactive when no text frame is selected
- when one single text frame is selected, the link to the next frame is removed (if any)
- when multiple text frames are selected, the link between the selected frames are removed
TagsNo tags attached.

we could even keep it enabled when no item is selected and it will unlink the next tool you click on from its next item.

if multiple text frame are seleted, enabling the tool could simply link all the selected items, starting from top left.
