Can't access the free editing fonction
« on: October 05, 2016, 01:34:35 am »
Hi everyone,

I'm new to Scribus 1.5 (was used to 1.4.6) and I'm wondering if it's normal that I can't freely resize text or image frames, by dragging their corners or sides for example, or even edit text without using the editor, the way I used to sometimes? I feel like I'm in a blocked mode or something since all the icons at the top are grey and unclickable (except save, print and such).

thanks in advance for your help
Grace

hi grace

concerning the "blocked mode"... i'm wondering if you're in preview mode (view > preview > preview mode), which -- as you can read in another thread -- as sadly become a "blocked mode"... (but we are trying hard to get this anti-feature to be reverted)

or is the current layer locked?

hard to say without seeing your monitor...

Thank you so much a.l.e !!
I was indeed in Preview mode from the start as I usually prefer it to work on Scribus.
But I much rather work in unblocked mode !!!

Thanks, you just saved the day !!
