variables or dynamic text frames
« on: August 16, 2017, 04:33:59 pm »
Hello :)
I would like to know if there is a way to control text frame with dynamic content or variables.
I'm using Scribus for project documentation and I have a bunch of templates (scrapbooks I guess) and in the footer I want to put the name of the projet and I can't find a way to autopopulate that textframe so I don't have to go into every scrapbook layout to put the information.
hope you can help me !!!
thanks ;)

variable text, in a few way (iirc) has been added to the development version but is not in the stable Scribus 1.4...

so it depend on which version you're using...
