Hi Utnik,

Many thanks, I don't know how I'd have found that without your help, although I must have somehow figured it out the first time.

Having 'Properties' under the Table pulldown menu or as a Right Click operation with cells highlighted would have saved me several frustrating hours, I can't say that f3 is terribly intuitive.

Thanks again.

Jeff

hi ising4jesus

why aren't you reading what jean ghali tells you?
you can edit your inline text frame. (open 'windows' → 'inline items' and right click the item you like to edit…)

Images do not get inserted into a text box, they are put in an image frame and then can be moved anywhere on the page, the "SHAPE" controls text flow

Yes, you can insert a text frame inside another text frame, however, it is buggy at the moment.  Before I go further, let me say that once you do enter the frame inside the frame, it won't be editable, so make sure it's right before you insert it.

Here's how to make it work:

1. Create your new Text Frame, and get it formatted and styled exactly as you want it to be.
    Insert menu / Text Frame,  Then draw your frame, etc.

2. Select the frame, so you can set the border handles, and then select "Cut" from the Edit menu.

3. Double-click inside the text box where you want the new one inserted, and position the cursor where you want it to be.
    NOTE:  You do NOT want to add spaces as you mentioned in your message.  Just position the cursor where you want it.

4. Paste in your frame.  It will now flow with the text inside the other frame.
    Edit Menu / Paste

This will work fine except that once it is inserted, you can't select or edit it.

did you read the answer from jean ghali to your bug report?
if your scribus version doesn't support the editing of inline objects, you might need to update to something more recent…

Beginner Talk / Inserting lines, shapes, or graphic images into a Text Frame
« Last post by ising4jesus on January 23, 2022, 11:48:53 am »
This is similar to my last question... but perhaps there's a solution for this one.

How can I insert a line, shape, or a graphic image inside a Text Frame? 
I want the graphics to flow with the text.

Can I select, move, or edit the line, shape, or graphic after it has been inserted?

You're correct, Nermander. 

I already know I can put a box on top of the text... but the box will not flow with the text. 
The text frame will flow, but it is un-editable, once inserted.

I went ahead and reported this as a bug on the Scribus bug-reporting website.
If anyone can think of a good work-around, I'm all ears!  ;-)

If I understand right, ising4jesus wants the text frame to move with the text, inside the text frame (the same way as an inline image frame inside a text frame does?).

Solved: I repeated all the usual steps, setting up TOC in the Document setup and identifying the frame in which I wanted it to appear, adding attributes to the frames I want to reference, etc. Nothing.

In a paddy, I randomly typed some text into the intended target TOC frame and tried again, and behold, the TOC was generated.

a text box on top of another text box?,  "Shape" works if this is what you are trying to do
