Need some help with Scrapbook
« on: March 29, 2015, 11:18:26 pm »
I really like the idea behind this particular feature, but I was messing around with it the other day, and accidentally created a new page, group, segment, whatever you call it, and now I can't get rid of it. Please, how do I get rid of this extra page?

Gee, I thought I had explained it fairly well… Anyway, once more, I have created a page in scrapbook that I cannot now get rid of. How do I delete pages from scrapbook?

Did you try right-clicking on the item?

Okay, so I seem to have sort of figured it out… The scrapbook itself, the interface, is not very intuitive. I assumed that the "close scrapbook button" would do exactly what it said and close the scrapbook, but what it actually does is what I was trying to do, it closes a single page in the scrapbook.

Very confusing, the whole darn thing.

it might be a bit less confusing if you accept the choice of the developers to call this different scrapbooks…

Yes, that is where the confusion lies. They should not call the function Scrapbook, but instead, Scrapbook Manager since what it essentially does is manage a whole bunch of separate scrapbooks.

Well, the easy solution would of course to be to call it "Scrapbooks" :)

I think that initially Scribus only had support for one scrapbook, then the name of the feature wasn't changed when support for several scrapbooks was added.
