Unable to Edit After a Period of Use
« on: March 04, 2020, 10:50:06 am »
If you're working on a project and all of a sudden you can't edit any pages, I discovered if you change to another layer and switch right back, editing is again possible. This seems to happen when I jump around from page to page for a while. It definitely happens when I scroll from the a low page number to the end page number.

Even if you don't use layers, you can create one that you only use to switch to and right back. I discovered this after LOTS of file saves, close the file, reopen it so I could start editing again. Layer switching is much faster :-)

hi muse

this never happened with my scribus files. but if it is reproducible, you should file a bug report.
