Image/Text Frames
« on: April 29, 2018, 11:40:37 pm »
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. When I get ready to put an image on the page, I first click on the image frame and place the box where it needs to be. But as soon as I let go of the box, it disappears. The same thing happens when trying to make a text frame. In the past, I could go to "show frames" in View; but this time, most of the items in View are greyed out.

So my question is two-fold: Why do the frames not show, and why do I need to RE-click to "show Frames" in View.
If U can't see the silver lining, look harder!

you probably have activated the preview mode...

in scribus 1.4 it's "view > preview mode" or the eye button on the right side of the bottom toolbar...
