I appologize for not looking at it again as I thought it was the same
picture you posted last nite.  But I did view it prior to responding and
it looks nice.  Is it possible to also add an icon button to the tool
bar to select it?  That should simplify the task of font attributes a

Segmentation fault
That is all it shows, but it happened differently this time.  Just out
of curiousity, I created a text box, inserted some text from a file.  I
chose some text, went to the menu, selected copy.  Created another text
box and selected that box for text, pasted from the menu and it didn't
crash.  I tried it again without mishap.  Then I did Ctrl-V for paste
which also worked without crashing!  I then selected some new text from
the first box, chose "cut" from the menu, which promptly killed that
Scribus session with a segmentation fault.

Does the clipboard work correctly in Gnome2 for this?  I admit I haven't
tried it in Gnome, since I use KDE most often.

Yes, that should be helpful to you guys working on it, so you don't have
to retrace your footsteps in running down a problem.
