|Summary||0003889: wish: name textfields and images automatically|
it would be great to have some objects automatically named, not just with "Text10" or "Image234" but with the first letters of the text or the name of the image -- and the name changing automatically when you change the image or the text -- except you edited the name manually!
What do you think of this idea? Did you actually get what i tried to get at?

Yes, I understand, but renaming items on the fly might not be a good idea...
Also there is no fool proof way to extract meaningful names from headings or filenames.
DSC10, DSC234, ... are not really an improvement.
hmm for those things i design with scribus i usually have named pictures, because i don't use it for image galleries, where it really would by DSC232 ... so when i insert a pic into scribus it usually has got a clear name..
and it's easier to identify a text, which name begins with "In 2003 American soldiers went into Iraq" than just a name "Text239"
...I agree that it COULD be bad, when objects are changing names all the time, but i thought of these times where i first have picture "Mum.tif" but later change it to "Dad.tif" .. would be practical when the name changes automatically.
But when i inserted "Mum.tif" and changed the name of the picture-field in Scribus manually to "Mother" it wouldnt change to "Dad.tif" anymore when i select theother pic... got the point?
But you could insert such a function optionally...
