OK.  This morning I compiled from CVS.  The same thing happens.  
Interestingly, if you change the fill colour for a polygon frame, then click 
OK, and then go back to Preferences, the fill colour is set back to the 
previous one, ie it doesn't "take" even over changes in the same instance.  
Changing the font like this *does* take.  However, neither one takes over a 
new instance of Scribus.  I have changed permissions on the new .scribus and 
scribus.rc to 777, but that makes no difference.  This is not a major thing, 
since I will just

This is a useful addition.  I'm seeing some oddities, but that may be due to 
my KDE setup, so I won't waste your time on this until I have done a bit more

That is really cool - I'd missed that button.

Ah, that's useful!

[Peter: When starting some translation, please let the list know in
advance or the original writer, as I have translated half this
already..( ]

Sorry :-)  I didn't see any notes to the effect that a Welsh translation was 
in the works.  I'll send you the .po file offlist, and if you want to check 
it against the work you've already done we can reconcile any differences.  
I'm quite happy to have all of us (including your colleague) credited, if 
that helps :-)  The one benefit is that you/[s]he don't have to do the other 
half!  By the way, you/[s]he might find our website of interest, since we 
have been working for the past 6 months on localising KDE and Gnome, along 
with some other apps, in Welsh, and we're getting on pretty well.  There is 
also an online dictionary there for computer terms.

[Peter: My "See below" comments are to strongly urge you to upgrade to 1.1.0 
and make sure you have libart_lgpl and libart-devel 2.3.16 and compile from
source. ]

OK.  I've got freetype2*-2.1.3 and libart* 2.3.11 at the moment, so I'll try 
updating those.


Best wishes
