Swap Images

From Scribus Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
This article is part of the Scripts series.

Here is a simple script that has one task, to switch the images in 2 selected frames.

This is undo-able, but you will need to click Undo twice, since there are two separate operations in the script.
