Hi Carol:  Thank you for your suggestion.  I did try to hard boot the 
computer, but that did not help.  However, Craig's suggestion to rename 
the .scribus folder and then start the program again, helped.  Upon 
restarting the program it created a new .scribus folder and everything 
seems to be working fine.

I have no idea what went wrong, but at least we have a solution should 
it happen again.  I love the ability to use Scribus on my Mac and 
missed the program for the two days I was unable to use it!
