Scribus UI/UX improvements

<< < (54/54)

Hello cloudbusting,

I recommend starting over with a new implementation from the beginning. :)

Let me share some insights with you. As a non-programmer I learned Qt / C ++ to translate my ideas into the existing Scribus code. But many people next to me also worked on Scribus at the same time. My biggest mistake was getting started with the wrong things - the final layout components themselves. In my opinion, the Scribus code must first be refactored and prepared for implementation.

For example, to use the Indigo UI color picker, color management must first be refactored. Something like dealing with temporary colors that are not included in the color palette of the document, etc.

This can be done step by step before the "real" implementation of the Indigo UI makes sense. During my implementation project, I came across many blockers a long time ago. To solve these problems, I encountered new problems and the work exploded.

In the end, the code was very outdated, because nothing could be merged with the main branch and the work was too much for one.
