Summary0016619: File selection dialog box always reverts to small size
DescriptionScribus Version 1.5.7.svn on Ubuntu 21.04

When I open a file, select an image to insert into an image frame etc, a file chooser modal dialog opens as you would expect. The size is always tiny, with a very small area showing file names, and always in a 'thumbnail' type of layout with file names going across and down. I can see only 10 file names at a time, which makes it very difficult to select the image file that I need. I can resize the box, change the layout, and next time I select an image, it's back to the tiny size.

I think that this has always been a problem with Scribus, but it's only starting to irritate me now as I am putting a photo book together, using hundreds of images. I imagine that for people doing mainly image work such as magazines, children's books and photo albums, this would make Scribus pretty much unusable.

This appears to not be a Qt issue, users at the Qt forum say that this is an internal Scribus dialog.

p.s. this is the same in other versions of Scribus, not just the latest.
