By which program ?  Illustrator ? Corel Draw ? Photoshop ?

Are you trying to include this in another document or application ? PDF
might be a better way. GSView 4.4 and Ghostscript 8.0 on Win2k open the
few Scribus EPS files I have tested.

Exactly. For the 1.0 Docs I have already put together some notes and
hints about file formats. 

So far, in my incomplete testing, Illustrator 10 does a remarkable job
of editing individual Scribus PDF pages. I have taken a bunch of
different Scribus PDF's and can edit any kind of object in Illustrator.
Text, image and even the newest text into polygons features are all
editable under Illustrator.

Hope that helps,
