I am using 1.2.1, and while importing writer files gives the text 
formats, other formatting such as tables is lost.

Is there an easy way to import table oriented data?

My method so far has been to create a PDF and bring it into scribus as 
an image. That works fairly well but sometimes looks funny.  I am 
currently working on a newsletter that will have some tabular budget 
data in it.  What is the best way to do that kind of thing?

Oh, I should mention I have tried the table facility, and it seems to be 
pretty difficult to work with, but ok for very small tables.  I am 
really more interested in being able to import decent tables.

Any suggestions?
