I don't believe there is a way do what you are doing in scribus 1.2,
though I believe some of that may change in 1.3 by the time it is
stable. I wrote an automated ID generation script and just created each
element for each card, instead of trying to copy the layout over to each
one. The script I came up with is on the scribus download page if you
want to take a look at how I did it.
