Summary0016891: Applying new custom shapes to text frames
DescriptionDear developers

Overall you are doing an awesome work.
My platform is linux mint 21 / scribus 1.5.8

I am working at a comic strip booklet and I wish I select dialogue balloons using a custom shape.
My dialogue balloons are hundreds and linked using the link tool.
I need to select each one and apply a custom shape unto it then further customized it if necessary
I am not satisfied with default custom shapes so I wish I could add a new category along Default Shapes, Arrow, Jigsaw (Properties -> Shape)

Here are some helping screenshots

Where could I make a small donation for this feature?

Thank you
Steps To Reproduce

1 Create a set of linked text frames with some sample text (use N for shortcut)
2 Select a random one and go on Properties (F2)
3 Select Shape > Choose the shape of frame

then I am only given a few sets of predefined shapes: arrow, jigsaw

I need to be able to add my own.

There is no easy workaround since if you use shapes palette to add your own shapes you need to break the link and rebind again

Also there is no copy shape clone tool (you only can clone colors and stroke lines)
