[scribus-dev] [scribus] "Blank" document <- user needs help

I only offered my suggestion as a possible thing to look at, sorry not to have
been more help, but I'm not a Scribus developer, so it was a bit of a stab in
the dark for me.
However, I can say that I've used Scribus to produce 2 full colour books of
over 200 pages, (with a photo on nearly every page), and I've been soundly
impressed at the overall quality and robustness of the code. There are issues,
and it's not InDesign because it's produced with volunteer work instead of
millions of dollars. But when it works, it usually works very well.
Maybe file a bug report, or look/post on the scribus-dev list?
(instead of the scribus-user list)
