|Summary||0009588: Missing error message when pasting on locked background shape|
"I have sometimes a problem that I don't understand: when cut a
photo from one document with Ctrl-X, I often cannot paste it on a page in
the other document; either the Paste function doesn't appear when I do a
right-click on the page, or the Edit->Paste or Ctrl-V doesn't seem to work,
and the photo doesn't appear anywhere.
I doesn't happen everytime, but often enough to be quite annoying.
I think I have the answer: I was trying to paste the photo on the
background layer, where there was already a locked background shape that covered the whole page.
I have no problem when I'm on the right layer, where I'm supposed to put
Scribus would help people to help themselves if it could provide
some warning message :
"Sorry, you cannot paste on this locked layer ! Unlock it or change layer..."
Personally, I don't wish that Scribus starts shouting at me with alerts the whole time...
But i agree that in this case, Scribus could give a better feedback than just disabling the functiontality.
One way to do it, would be to use (maybe in a even better way) the notification area in the status bar.
Personally, I can even think that Scribus may also have a notification palette on top of it... where you could see some of the past notifications and -- maybe -- even more detailed information.
There is simple way of warning without loading screen - cursor shapes.
But Scribus has poor handling for stacked frames even with one layer.
