Hi all,

I have been attemting to write a script to do some stuf for me. I cant find 
anything about checking a textbox to see if its overflowing. Or how many lines 
of text is in it. The function GetTextLength seems to return the amount of 

Secondly I want to add hyphen support for afrikaans (I have a file ready) I just 
dont know how to add it to scribus (I found the directory but scribus doesnt see 
it). The file isnt large (36kb) I could send it to someone.

If I want to do preproccesing on foto's (adjusting light/color and converting to 
cmyk) would you suggest photoshop or gimp? Does gimp take things like the 
spreading of ink into account? 


P.S. Can I tell scribus to no allow more than 240% total color coverage? I dont 
see it as an option?
