Hi Wayne,

When I need to set screen frequency and angle in a Scribus doc, I tend 
to generate postscript file (by printing to a file), and manually add 
the appropriate postscript code, which if I remember correctly, is:
currentscreen 3 1 roll pop pop 60 45 3 -1 roll setscreen
Where 45 is the screen angle and 60 is the frequency.

For a single page document this code should work anywhere in the file; 
for separations, where you need a different angle for each plate, you 
need to add it to the appropriate page.

As for importing a PDF into PageMaker (version 7), you can just 
File->Place it like any other type of image.

All the best,
