Summary0017227: Foot/Endnotes not work
DescriptionI created a book using Scribus v1.6.1 (currently using). All went fine until I tried adding Footnotes. While inside the text-box, I right-click and went to "Add Foot/Endnote". The entry in the menu is not even clickable. Then I went to Edit >> Notes Styles. This menu entry is not clickable as well. The entry does not even highlights like the others when hovering over the mouse pointer. I thought I'm missing something.
I tried:
Creating a new page
Creating a new doc from scratch
Assisting a F5 key to it

None works.

I tried v1.5.8. It works there but that version does not accept files from v1.6.1.

I thought any new versions 1.6.2 may be solved it but could not find a way to install those. Fedora does not show then and AppImage is not available for that (I don't know the zip archive download and stuff).
Steps To ReproduceJust open Scribus, go behind a word in any text-frame, right-click, choose to add Foot/Endnotes. You'll find it is not even clickable
Additional InformationI am filing again. Last time there was no confirmation that it got through or not

On MS Windows, I checked the same version v1.6.1. There, all these options are greyed out (that is more clear, visually).

But why? v1.5.8 does it fine out of the box. So in 1.6.1, does a document have to have some attributes or something to be able quality to use foot/endnotes?

Footnotes and endnotes are experimental features. They have been made optional and disabled by default. They can be enabled From File > Preferences > Experimental tab.
