is editing text from main page disabled in 1.5.8??
« on: January 22, 2023, 02:06:31 pm »
im trying to edit text directly on the frame but im not being able, i already checked the wiki and the solutions i found are not working for me

i tried double clicking as it used to be, presing C does nothing, presing E pops up the story editor...

is this feature disabled on 1.5.8???

works great, make sure you are not in a different layer or in view mode

do you mean frame when you say layer? i said that pressing E poped up the story editor so im for sure selecting the correct frame

seems odd
I tried it on a flatpak version and it seems to work like it's supposed to

maybe posting some more info about your OS/DE/install will help sort the problem
is just one file or everyone you try?

hi zoncabe

what happens when you double click on a text frame?
(usually you should enter the edit modeā€¦)

did you try a new Text frame?
I'm on Linux mint 21
if would not have been difficult to move your text frame to a new layer, open the layers palette, just in case that happened.
