Yi and Femke consider cooking heartless vegan food from now on

We’re correcting the second edition of the Puerto Cookbook (first edition sold out!) and stumble over a trivial but frustrating small bug in Scribus. Maybe too long to explain here (you’re welcome to read our bug report), but it means a lot of scrolling back and forth through the Unicode chart to locate the obligatory œ ligature and correct ‘heart’ (cœur) and ‘egg’ (œuf) in French.

    A few hours later, the following note has been added to our bug report:

    (0022830) jghali (administrator) – 09-Nov-11 21:12
    The issue can be fixed by commenting out line 786/787 of charselect.cpp:

    if (insCode->hasFocus())
    return; // don’t insert glyphs when user edits HEX unicode

    Not quite sure why that code was added. It has however been removed in
    1.3.5+, so that issue does not exists in 1.3.5/1.5.0svn

    were you also having problems with Scribus clipboard? (related to text boxes)
