Summary0002551: manage picture isn't useful
DescriptionThe gist is that manage pictures is locked so that I can't use it to go to a particular picture and then with the window open edit. I mean that I can't use any other tool inconjunction to it.

Also the search button doesn't make sense here. what would make more sense is one search button that brings up a search window. The search window would let you search by name, file type, size etc.

Also is there a manage for text frames?
TagsNo tags attached.

Regarding your bug, we're aware of and working on the issue. The manage pictures dialog is known to be limited, and does need a rewrite. Any new version is expected to be non-modal and have a more flexible search, plus have buttons for browsing for a new image and for clearing the frame.

There's no "manage text" dialog because we don't (yet!) support linking to text externally. Thus there are no links to worry about.

You might want to monitor bug 0001578 to be informed of any progress on the issue.
