Summary0008373: After deleting page containing inline frame, frame remains in saved doc
Description[remaining frame part of issue 0008369]

If I create a page with an inline image frame, and then delete the page, the frame remains in the .sla document with no apparent way to delete it.
Steps To Reproduce1. Start scribus and create a new blank document.
2. Add a new page (page 2).
3. On page 2, insert an image frame with any old pdf image.
4. Also on page 2, insert a text frame.
5. Copy the image frame from step 3 and paste it in to the text frame as an inline image.
6. Delete the original image frame.
7. Save the document.

The modified document still contains the FRAMEOBJECT item corresponding to the inline image, even though it is no longer referenced anywhere.

Adding Franz to CC..

Franz, with your recent 1.5 work on inline text frames, do you think you can fix this in 1.4.1.svn without risk of destabilising inline frames

I've already fixed that in 1.5.0svn for Drag'n'Drop of objects. These fixes can safely backported to 1.4.x without breaking anything.

a/ no need to have a look at the .sla, the item is in the "inline items" window

b/ currently, inline items are not deleted when a "surrounding" text frame is deleted (so, it's not deleted when a page is deleted, either)

c/ since you can insert one single inline item in multiple text frames this behavior is coherent.


d/ we probably should not have an "inline items" window

e/ the inline items could be shown as sub items of a text frame in the outline window

f/ it should not be possible to insert on single inline item in multiple text frames

so, this bug should probably be closed... but i would welcome a feature request for the points d/ to f/ :-)

I'm not sure for d) and f)

f) depends how items behaviours relate to other scribus objects behaviours : notably scrapbook objects, symbols and one of the type of cezary's marks (that are text-bits that can be used in multiple places).
When inline items could be inserted only in a single place, it would bring less versatility, less design options, but more UI and code simplicity (KISS way).

d) depends on the status of inline objects. As long as they can be inlined into multiple frames, they are very independant objects, and as such it' probably usefull to have a dedicated window for them. Even if inline objects become very basic it could be usefull to list them and access to anyone, for maintenance sake (For example : At one point, if SLA gets too large, user might want to change some inline images into external files and will need to find/browse them)
Beside, this window could propose other operations, like import / export inline items...

As for c), it could evolve toward :

c2) Garbage collector : as long as inline items can be inlined in multiple frames, they should only be deleted when their last insertion point is being deleted. When such a situation occurs, either the inline object is simply deleted, either the UI asks whether the item should be deleted or kept for future use.
