Quote from: GarryP on August 23, 2017, 09:35:06 AMMaybe it's time for Scribus to also have "Text Frame Styles"? First Line Offset, Columns and Text Distances, and Optical Margins could all be put into a style which could be applied to frames without altering the formatting of the text within. They would alter how the text is displayed but they don't need to interact with the text styles as they should work at a higher level before the text starts to be rendered. Just a thought.
