Scribus 1.5.5 dropdown not working

Previous topic - Next topic


In Scribus 1.5.5 the above menu dropdown is not working. There are arrows in bottom right corner but when clicked no dropdown. For example I can not choose circle under "Shape (S)" icon.

  • I have been using Scribus 1.4 version so I do not know from what versions it appeared.
  • I am using Catalina, but I do not think it is only in latest mac version

I am not writing to the bugs forum, because perhaps the issue is caused by missing software or something else entirely in my computer.


on my system (macOS 10.14.6) the dropdown menu opens just by holding the mouse button for half a second.



Would it be too hard to code the dropdown so that it will open with a right click as in some other applications? I.E. PhotoLine does have this feature for the tool bar...


Holding the mouse button down longer time actually worked. Thanks utnik I had no idea I have to hold the mouse button down so long.

I agree with toyotadesigner. I actually did expect it to open with right click when clicking to the bottom right corner did not work.
