running headers with chapter titles

Previous topic - Next topic


lately, several people have asked for having the chapter title in the running header.

i fear that scribus won't have the feature until references get fixed... which can take a long time.

yesterday, i've finally created a script that can help putting the current chapter title into the the head / header:

i think that for a first implementation it works ok.

the basic idea is:

- the user puts on the master page a text frame that won't be printed.
- the script duplicates that frame to the pages that use the specific master and...
- fills it with the latest chapter title it has seen.

you're welcome to test it and give feedback on

- what it needs to be implemented to make it useful to you?
- any bug?

i would also be glad if somebody could provide test documents...
