i did not know about cryptopad: nice platform!
personally, at first sight, i tend to prefer hedgedoc, but hedgedoc does not seem to offer a stable platform to use any more. (yesterday's document has already been deleted... to be honest, the warned that it could happen.)
it's a markdown file and if somebody wants to help with the editing, just create an account on cryptpad and ask for write access!
in the long term, i would suggest that we create one (or several) repositories in the gitlab account dedicated to scribus.
some time later...
i have now created some more content in the cryptopad and i've noticed an issue: the images are not added with a "normal" markdown link. as it is, we cannot really export the document to markdown for further processing. i hope i can find a solution (otherwise we will need to look for a different platform).
some more time later...
we can add an additional argument file="image.png"... we will then have to figure out how to add the "proprietary" tags back, when coming back to cryptopad... this can get cumbersome, if the document is rather long (and has maybe been created outside of cryptopad)
now, i backup the file to gitlab and do some other tasks.

Well, I have egg on my face. My contour box had gotten so messed up that I deleted the image and started fresh. The shape edit dialog feels more quirky than I remember, but I was able to achieve uniform contour line expansion with the image centered. I had copied my file (a Christmas letter) from Dec. 2022 (created with the previous Scribus version), and had originally kept the old image box and replaced the image with a new one. I don't know if that was the source of my problems, but I seem to be back in business.

I have a similar question. I am using Scribus 1.5.8 on MacOS Sonoma 14.1. In the past the Properties -> Shape -> Edit dialog had an icon which would expand the border in all directions equally, leaving the image centered. (I also seem to recall there is a difference between Contour lines & bounding box, but I'm not sure about that.). Presently, all I see are a single arrow, either pointing up to the right or down to the right. When I click on the up to the right arrow, the box expands, but the image is no longer centered. Reset contour lines or all edits does not restore things back to how they were before I clicked "edit." (i.e. contour line & image frame identical.)
Is there a distinction between contour lines & bounding box? How do contour lines relate to frame? What happened to the icon to expand the bounding box equally in all directions? What is the best way to achieve a uniform buffer of white space around an image box for wrapped text?
