|Summary||0002107: Master documents|
|Description||Suport for master documents, which are composed of one or more "linked" external .sla files, could be extremely useful for collaboration. If such a document could pull in an external .sla for /part of/ a page, eg a 1/2 page ad, that'd be even better.|

Figured you'd want to be on the notify list for this one.
If we do end up supporting something like this, let's not do it the MS word way. Quoted from Bruce Byfield ( http://software.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=05/06/14/2137222&from=rss ) who in turn quotes John McGhie:
"A master document has only two possible states: Corrupt, or just about to be corrupt."
copied from the duplicate bug 3451:
"2107 is about publications idea, ok. but definable page numbering in publications means that if two documents separately are started with 1, in publication first starts with 1 (and it has for example 11 pages), and the second starts with 13 (if defined that every document has to start with right page) or 12 (if layout is defined as continous)"
Vote for this one.
I used to work a long time with "Help & Manuel" which had this feature.
The master document contained 6 linked chapters. And every chapter was edited by one user.
This is the only way if you want to work with many people on one document! -> split in many docs and link them all in a master doc. Everyone has his own file an is happy.
One more reason for chapters in separate files - lack of performance that seems to stay with us for long.
Using such manner allowed me to work with books of hundreds pages even in Ventura for DOS on 486 processors with 32 mb of RAM. And it worked much faster than Scribus on AMDx2 64 bit 5400.
