Try sending them to the scrap book or using the new import pages File >

BTW, this trick (File > Import > Insert Page > )fixed a problem with a
doc, where I could not add addtional pages. So, I created a new doc and
imported the old doc. Life on the bleeding edge....
I think Franz and Paul need to give me about a week to catch up with all
the new features and additions. <g>

But does the destkop return to usability ?
Launching Scribus is now a more complex issue, as it resets the font
path on the fly, for good reasons I might add.. Starting a DTP is more
than starting a console... Scribus is actually well behaved. Try
illustrator on a machine with 600 fonts.
