Title: Scribus crashes due to Signal #11
Post by: gio on December 09, 2013, 03:20:44 pm
How do you delete a Master Page ? I mean ... without crash !

I go to Edit > Master Page, I select, I click "delete the selected Master Page", I confirm ... and then when I close the Master Page editing window, I have a new window :
Scribus crashes due to Signal #11

...and Scribus is closed.  :-X

(I should mention that this is a master page in application on more than 300 pages.)

A bit of a tricky one this.

It sounds like a bug but it would depend on the exact circumstances and, I’m guessing in this instance, those circumstances may be very difficult for anyone to replicate without your original document.

My quick work-around would be to simply not delete master pages. Just rename them - double click the name in the master page editor dialog - as something like “Unused Master Page 1”. Then just ignore them.

It shouldn’t affect your resulting PDF as - if they’re not applied to any document pages - they shouldn’t be included by the export function.

(If you delete the objects on them they should only take up a few extra bytes in the SLA and, with 300 pages, I’d say you wouldn’t notice the extra burden.)

You should try and report it as a bug - if you have a login - but it may be difficult for the developers to track the problem down without specific information.
