Summary0009515: Converting to image frame doesn't work for combined polygons
DescriptionUp to 1.3.3.x we could use use text as an image frame via the following steps:

1) Create text frame and insert text

2) Convert to Outlines

3) Item > Combine Polygons

4) Convert to image frame

5) Load image

This works up to step 4, which doesn't convert the combined polygon into an image frame. The context menu is that of a polygon instead. If the trick doesn't work any longer, "Convert to Image Frame" shouldn't be available, but it would be unfortunate to lose that design option.

2a) ungroup
6) it works

your way of doing also perfectly works but since your combining the whole group -- and not its members -- you will get one image frame for each glyph.

i guess that the question is: what should scribus do, when you ask to combine one single group? a group and a frame? two groups?
