just fine. 

I think my 'problem' was, that I've never uses a professional dtp program 
before. Just OpenOffice.org or a really old version of Corel Draw some years 
ago. I think I just had wrong ideas of how such a program works. 
I'll try not to edit that much text in scribus. I'll use another program for 
textwriting an include the text after I've done the design.

Thanks for all the suggestions and answers to my questions...
