|Summary||0000006: Ability to show some sort of indicator to show how a textframe chain flows|
|Description||Could have some sort of line from bottom-right of frame N to top left of frame (N+1) in text chain.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Also requested by Sebastian Röder on the mailing list.
Would like to have an indicator on what text frames are linked frames.
As well as lines, it might be nice to be able to show the linking as a text code, perhaps only shown when an option like "Show frame links" is shown. For example, the next frame might be shown at the bottom right, the prev frame at the top left, and the current frame in the centre. I've attached a rough mockup of the general idea.
I think this approach might be useful when linking between documents is common or documents are linked in complex ways. The previous and next link codes could be clickable to jump to that frame, making navigation along a linked series easier.
I've used codes like 'A1' etc in the example (assuming that Scribus would automatically use 'A','B','C' etc for different linked series). It might make sense to use the identifier of the first text frame instead - not sure.
Another possibility might be to be able to pick up an empty "next link" box and drag it to the frame you want to link to.
I'm not sure if this is a good idea yet, but I thought I'd put it out there and see in case it's useful.
