As an experiment, I've just taken one of my Scribus-to-pdf
presentations, and attempted to export a page (from the Scribus
document, of course), then import back into Scribus, as if I was going
to make a handout with the slides.
Although exporting to SVG then importing worked, it worked quite poorly,
with a modification of the typeface, and malpositioned typeface at
that. The frames of some pictures on the page were in scale with the
overall frame, but the image contents did not shrink to the same
relative size that they were in the original, so only part of the image
is visible. The gradient background was OK.
Attempting to export as EPS gave no complaints, yet could not be
imported into Scribus.
Exporting to PNG worked, but the default resolution of "72ppi" was quite
unsatisfactory, as assessed by exporting the subsequent Scribus
importation document to PDF. Increasing to 200ppi was perhaps a bare
minimum of quality one would want in the final PDF. The advantage of
the PNG was that the elements of the page were quite accurate
individually and were scaled appropriately.
At this point, I would have to say that exporting pages as images is the
only useful option. (14 October 2004 build)
