sorry. it works when you change the font with no documents open.

i still have this problem in the cvs of 11.june F-C-C-T. i do have
ghostscript installed. output of"whereis ghostscript":

ghostscript: /usr/bin/ghostscript /usr/lib/ghostscript
/usr/share/ghostscript /usr/share/man/man1/ghostscript.1.bz2

and output for "ghostscript --version":

ghostscript --version 7.05.6.

as i said in my previous mail everytime i use "print preview" scribus
creates a tmp.ps in .scribus directory. when i click on that in the kde
filemanager, i get this message:

The desktop entry file
/usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/convertpstopdf.desktop has an
invalid menu entry convertpstopdf.onvertpstopdf.

i am afraid i don't know what's happening here. anybody else
experiencing this on mdk 9.1 systems (qt 3.1.1)?

thanks and regards, subash.
