Well I am trying this and failing!

Can copy and paste to oo.o drawing that's fine.  Then export selection 
as SVG, and import into scribus - all works except scribus messes up the 

I can obviously save the files as something else (tiff etc) and import 
them - but that isn't going to give the quality I'm looking for in the 
file size i'm looking for (I have a lot of these tables to insert).

In Fedora there is a 'preview' of svg files in 'file manager' - that 
looks OK.  Also I have just installed inkscape and it opens fine in that 
(only issue is some white text on dark background shows as black on dark 
- but that could be sorted ny changing the theme.)

In scribus the background "colours" are pasted in as the should be but 
the text is then inserted to the right.

Heres links to what I'm explaining:

http://www.wittongilbert.free-online.co.uk/table.sla    - the scribus 
file.  Top table is the table inserted as a tiff (i.e. what I am trying 
to achieve)
http://www.wittongilbert.free-online.co.uk/table.pdf    - the scribus 
file printed to pdf
http://www.wittongilbert.free-online.co.uk/table.tiff    - the tiff file
http://www.wittongilbert.free-online.co.uk/table.svg   - the svg graphic
http://www.wittongilbert.free-online.co.uk/table.sxc   - the oo.o 
http://www.wittongilbert.free-online.co.uk/table.sxd  - the oo.o drawing

Sorry, I know this is a real cheek - hoping that someone will have the 
time to look at my files - but I just can't see why this doesn't work?
