|Summary||0008334: Document windows are not independent on Mac|
|Description||Despite the commendable work on the native Mac version, Scribus still includes one major UI flaw:|
The document windows are displayed inside one "main" window, which also holds the toolbars. The document windows are not minimised to the Dock, but "iconify" to the lower right corner of the main window. One has to be careful not to move document windows out of the viewport of the main window. All in all, this is simply the classic multiple document interface (MDI) used on the Windows platform.
On a Mac, though, this interface feels foreign. For example, in a native Mac application, one can use the hotkey "Command-<" to switch between document windows, and one can use Expose to quickly find misplaced document windows.
I guess that for Scribus, the main window has to go away and the toolbars have to be moved to the document windows (or to a separate palette window, which seems to be the more popular choice).
