thanks for the link. But even here, I can't find something useful for 
this kind of work.

Not so easy to implement such functions, or not so easy to apply them?

My idea was just to make two loops:

browse all frames
	browse all paragraphs
		if paragraph's style == theOneI'mLookingFor
			getText of this paragraph
			getPageNumber of this frame
			add as new entry to table of contents

I have no idea how styles and paragraphs are stored in Scribus, but once 
you have a getParagraphStyle() and getParagraphText() and a way of 
jumping from one frame to the next and from one paragraph to the next, 
what else would you need?

:-) What's LoC? Why workaround?

Yes, time... :-) But that's the advantage over commercial software. So 
many projects have been spoiled by an impatient marketing - best example 
is $THEBIGEVAL in Redmond :-)
