Quote from: GarryP on March 21, 2013, 01:36:46 PMI would agree with Nermander that grouping the frames is what you need.However, once you group frames you can't edit their contents until you ungroup them again.Scribus doesn't have a "link a frame's position to another one" function, i.e. you can't tell a frame to stay at a given position from another when you move them around, unless they're in a group. (A few other forum threads have discussed similar things, e.g. http://forums.scribus.net/index.php/topic,616.msg2852.html#msg2852, but I don't know if anyone has requested this as a new feature. -- Update: 1.5.0svn has a "Weld" function that seems to do the job; I hope it stays in the final build.)Unfortunately I don't know of any quick way of inserting a new product without manually dragging others out of the way. (Have you thought about making your catalog with HTML/CSS instead? It might sound strange but this sort of "insert something new and everything flows around it" thing is something HTML/CSS do by default. And there are plenty of web-page-to-PDF converters out there. I know I'm a bit "off topic" here but I think it's worth a few minutes thought.)Some quick Scribus catalog-making tips I can give, after looking at your supplied SLA, would be:(1) Use Styles for your text. Create one paragraph style for your "codes" and another for your "prices". Then, if you ever want to change the text formatting of each you only have to do it once for the style and the change will be replicated across everywhere the style is used.(2) Put your guides on a master page. When your guides are on a master page, when you create a new page, you can apply the master page to the new page, and you get the guides "for free".(3) You might want to think about using fewer guides. Too many guides can be confusing, both for viewing the document and when using Scribus' snap-to-guide function. (For example, if you've got a frame that is 100pts across and you have two guides that are, say, 104pts away from each other, which guide does Scribus snap to? And would you notice if it used the "wrong" one?)(4) As an alternative to using guides to get your picture/code/price frames aligned and the same width etc., have a look at the "Windows -> Align and Distribute" capabilities. With this you can make frames align (e.g. top-to-bottom) and extend (e.g. make one side of a frame extend to the same position as the same side of another frame). These functions can be very useful and quick to use - and are probably underused by many beginners because of where the dialog is in the menu structure. (A friendly nudge to the developers there .)(5) And finally, think about using "Edit -> Multiple Duplicate..." to make a "grid" of products. For example, you can set-up one catalog entry as you want it at the top left of the page and then duplicate it at exact row and column distances across and down the page. Then everything is exactly the same and you just have to edit them.Anyway, I hope some of this is of some use to you and others reading this.Garry.
