Hi again,

>> I spotted a bug bug in exporting PDF from Scribus:
>> I a document I created, I have lots of image frames that have 
>> horizontal and/or vertical offsets specified, so that the actual image 
>> is not shown  dirctly at the margin of the frame, but a few 
>> millimeters moved in left or bottom direction.
>> When exporting that file to PDF, so that I can send it to the people 
>> who should print it, I noticed that those offets are not respected and 
>> the images are moved back to the frame margins (like I'd set an offset 
>> of 0). Of course, this destroys my layout.
>> I think this might be easily fixed, if you know it - so I'm telling 
>> you :)
>> BTW, I also tested that it sill happens with 0.9.9

The problem is still happening with 0.9.11, so I packed some sample 
files up to show you what I'm talking of:


The zip file contains the sample scribus file, the two needed graphics 
files (the eps is shown with wrong offset when exported), and a sample 
pdf that I exported with 0.9.11 and which shows the bug.
What I'm trying to do is to resemble the layout of 
http://jvp.kairo.at/team.php in a folder (yes, this is political 
"propaganda" made with scribus!)
I hope this can still be fixed for 1.0 (and I'd need the folder with 
that content printed soon :-> )

Greetings from Austria,
