While Scribus does not have a traditional "pasteboard like Quark or
Pagemaker, I find the scrapbook *very* useful and it has been very
reliable. You can also save scrapbooks separately from the doc. The file
format is consistent too: I have opened scrapbooks created with  much
older versions of Scribus and they displayed perfectly with all the
contents intact. Now that Franz add the right click > send to scrapbook
command, this makes working with the scrapbook very easy. I have full
pages of text stored in scrapbooks and found no problems with this.

If this is not suitable, some suggested workarounds: Add a blank extra
page in the doc for storing things temporarily. The other is to have
second doc open and copy to from the doc.

Hope that help,
