Please update your Scribus to the latest stable release, 0.9.11 I
believe, so that your indicated problems can be fixed.  The 0.8 version
is quite old and out dated, so you will get the benefit of many new
features by updating.  The updated file can be found on the Scribus
site, so yell if you need a url.
