Summary0005571: Text Flow ignores object border line
I have just been playing around a bit with your little DTP masterpiece and after creating an arrow object and setting it's surrounding conture to a dash-dot-rounded style I realized Scribus does not take into account this border line for making text flow around the shape objects. IMHO it should, it might also be nice to have a setting to define the margin between shape and text flowing around it.
Steps To ReproduceMake a shape, give it a thick border line and watch text colliding with the object..
Additional InformationThe setting 'use object conture' does not make a difference, too. Should it?
TagsNo tags attached.

AFAIK Scribus currently does take border linewidth into account.
As a work around, check "text flows around contour line", then
in Edit Shape:

* check "edit contourline"
* use one of the "enlarge path" buttons to create a distance between contourline and object shape (that's the button with the four red arrows in the corners)
