[Scribus] Looking for certain scripting functions

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 :-)
