|0007707||Scribus||User Interface||public||2009-01-06 09:14||2014-09-14 12:53|
|Platform||Dell Inspiron 9400||OS||Linux||OS Version||OpenSuSE 11.1|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0007707: [Proposal] Trigger a dialog for dropped images (mockup included)|
|Description||If you drag an image from your filesystem into scribus, the image is placed with the original size. This is very annoying if you have a highres picture.|
It would be nice to provide a dialog with some options (see screenshot)
|Tags||No tags attached.|

||Interesting but dangerous since the DTP software would have to resample pictures. I guess, this would be interesting to check at export time if pictures are OK. This would need some new batch features for picture handling in Scribus. This point have already been mentionned but Louis ans I during Phatch demo at LGM2008.|
No, it would not.
You just set the framesize as selected in the dialog.
the last two options are ment to be the same as already exists in the register image of an image frame (last two options)
Crop the image on pdf export to the framesize would be another useful feature.
||+1 on this idea. Triggering a dialog gives the user some helpful options. If they don't like it, they check 'do not popup dialog'. This would also solve 0010995|
-1 to this idea.
this can be better solved by making the PP accessible.
if you want to further control how the image is shown when dropped into scribus, just create an image frame (or duplicate an existing one) before dropping the image!
still, one sane enhancement that i extract from the proposal, is to limit the size of the newly created frame to the size of the page. i'll create a ticket with this proposition.
imho a "don't annoy me" button is the sign that the solution "stinks" :-)
(the problem might be real, though...)
||ale, Christoph has a rebuttal here: 0004724:0033093|
imo, the pop up on click without drag should be removed.
we discussed it in leipzig and nobody could come up with a reason for wanting it.
if you don't drag after clicking, the frame should simple be created at a default size (defined in the settings)
the only reason why people are seeing the dialog is, because they made an error and the dialog is an annoyance to click away before the next action is performed (mostly, deleting the item and start again; sometimes resizing it by draggin its handles)
i'll make a ticket for this.
as also noted in the other ticket, being able to set the size of the imported vector would be terrific!
i'm all for it.
just the popup is really unneeded. the mouse or the PP are the better and faster solution.
