Summary0003041: line width spinbox in Properties palettes behaves weird
DescriptionValue of line width defaults to 0pt on mousewheel event over it. Right after that it's impossible to change width wth spinbox's up/down buttons.
Steps To Reproduce1. Draw a line
2. Open Line tab in Properties palette
3. Point mouse cursor to the area above "Line width" spinbox
4. Scroll up to increase value (from default "1pt")
5. Value becomes "0"
6. Try to click up button to increase the value from zero. Nothing happens.
7. Try to use mousewheel. Noting happens.
8. Escape this line.
9. Reselect it again.
10. Repeat 3rd and 4th steps. Value changes just fine, when increased. When you try to decrease it with mousewheel, it doesn't fall incrementally by 1, but becomes "0" at once.
11. Then try to change value with spinbox buttons. The value becomes "0" again and again cannot be changed neither by mosuewheel, nor by spinbox buttons.
TagsNo tags attached.

Are you building CVS or using a deb? Works perfectly here.

Always CVS

I can confirm the same problem (except p.10) in case of setting up page margins. My locale is RU_ru.KOI8-R. When I choose 'en' locale (LC_ALL=en scribus) everything goes ok.

you not only need to set the locale, but switch the UI language into Russian. I tested other UI language choices and they work, even under locale change:

export LANG="RU_ru.KOI8-R"
mrdocs@linux:~> locale
locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory

I normally run this machine under LANG=en_US.UTF-8

Sorry to disappoint you, Peter, but this isn't minor issue. I can confirm presence of the issue on both Linux with ru_RU.UTF-8 and Windows XP SP1 with Russian MUI.

Please firstly fix your translations in the mpalette and qobject areas:
<space>pt must be translated to <space>pt (or whatever pt translates to), and the other <nospace>pt to <nospace>pt.

Sure, thanks for reminding me :) Let's see if these are related

Major issue is data loss or major functionality eg "I cannot type" or serious export or print failure. This is a borderline case I agree.
