Summary0016846: Crash when importing IDML
DescriptionI am trying to open an IDML file that I would like to edit on Scribus but when I select the file the small box that is "generating" the document is seen and then Scribus just crashes/shuts down as if I never opened it. I did go to recent files and not existing files when the "new doc" box on the tab is shown, but it still crashes. Please, I need some urgent assistance as I need to edit things on the programme and I am running out of time.


Additional InformationI have followed the steps that have been mentioned in a previous thread, but that did not help me.
TagsNo tags attached.

In order to provide any help, we will need the IDML document which triggers the crash. Please upload it here if it's small enough, otherwise please upload it at a place of your convenience and paste the link here.

Bug reports are not fit at all to provide real time help.
In case you wish "instant help", you'll get better chances when asking on irc (and wait for an answer).
