Just looking at ways to speed up my workflow.

At prsent.....

I hit "i" and I can create an image frame


Double click on image frame and I get the File Chooser to pick my image

Then go to the menu and "Adjust Frame to Image"

Is there a way to quickly bring in an image with the Frame defaulting to the Image size- to get rid of the last manual step above???

Many thanks

- you can use ctrl-i to load the image
- in the preferences, i've set ctrl-= as the shortcut for "adjust frame to image"

or you can drop the image on the page from a file manager... then scribus will create a frame that fits the size of the image.
