Oh well, Scribus is just not the tool you use with an ease, when you
just need something done and don't bother relearning everything... I
couldn't find the properties palette (I knew at some point where it is
and found it in "tools" now, but expected it in "item") That would have
helped a lot have found.
Anyways, have you tried to stretch an imported svg larger than the page
is? When I tried to stretch it across the upper and left border, it
would do anything, when stretching it across bottom and right, it
seriously screwed up things... and "undo" doesn't seem to work in 90% of
the cases, so I was kinda stuck.

That's it for now.


PS: I'll start out filing bugs, once I've seen 1.3. For now I'm rather
filing bugs against inkscape :D
