Sorry, it`s not easy to imagine what all the menus are in English... It`s 
Setup-->Preferences-->Document where the problem is still not fixed but in 
New->Document it`s fixed now. Yesterday it was broken in both of them. So the 
work is at least 50% done - or am I wrong?

OK, if you say there was an internal change and I need GS 8.x now, I have to 
do so, but it`s a little strange that the old .sla with latest CVS work fine 
in print preview and the newly created sla (with latest CVS) dosn`t. 
One more question to transparency: when I use a jpg photo that is overexposed 
on some white areas, then the print preview (the working one for an old 
sla-file) shows me transparency in this areas: I?ve never seen such behaviour 
in e.g. the gimp (but I like it). Is this normal? (Because jpg itself doesn`t 
have transparency).

I will send you an example the next days. Thanks.

One smaller new problem:
When I set some guidelines in masterpages I can change them with the 
guidelines dialog of the normal scribus window. When I edit guidelines on 
masterpages e.g move 5mm to the right I have the old and new ones on the page 
in the normal window. If I erase guidelines on the normal page (which had 
been set via masterpages) they are gone, but I can hget them back via the 
masterpages menu (just open and close, because thy are still shown there). 
This is confusing - or I didn`t understand a spezial usability feature.
