Hi Janusz,
this exchange of views about ligatures has been a very
interesting read for me, since this is something, I'm
being asked almost every time I post about the
progress of Scribus to  Polish Usenet groups, e.g.
pl.comp.dtp. It seems to be of crucial importance not
only to you... There is a special feature request for


I think, the best thing that you and people with your
knowledge and well-defined needs can do at this stage
of Scribus 1.3.x development, is to create yourself an
account for http://bugs.scribus.net  (it's just a few
text fields and clicks) and add your comments and
wishes there. This is where most features of Scribus
are shaped, defined and where their pros and cons are
discussed, bevor Scribus developers start to code
