Summary0008863: Form features to add
DescriptionIt would be nice to have the following form field features added to a future version of Scribus.

1. Radio buttons (0000866)
2. Allow multiple check boxes to have the same name so they can be mutually exclusive. I know this is normally the function of radio buttons but it is nice to have this option with check boxes.
3. Make it so check boxes can have values assigned to them.
4. Make it so the fields assume the look of what ever kind of field is being added to document maybe from the properties. In other words make it so a button looks like a button that is beveled when that property is chosen.

Are there plans to upgrade the pdf version higher than 1.5?
Additional InformationI think it is great that Scribus has such form field capabilities. I hope it gets better.

First three seem to me duplicates of or related to issues 0000866 and 0007322.

hi steven,

you should try to post one issue per report... it's much easier for the devs to manage them :-)

BelJoost. Yes it seems they are related to those two issues.

Should I leave it as is or redo these so they are individual issues? Or at least 1. and 4. which don't seem to be duplicates. I'm still fairly new to this feature request stuff with open source apps.

My compliments to the devs and everyone else involved for doing such a great job on Scribus so far.
