Hi all,

It's my first time in this list, so i'd like first to congratulate everybody 
for this great software! (sorry if my english isn't that good, c'est la 

I'm using scribus-cvs for debian (1.3.1), installed from the binary deb 
packages, and I can't make my boxes snap to guides. They snap to the grid, if 
I want, but I don't want. Is there a hidden (for me, at least) option to 
really activate it? Another question: are the margins guides? 

One more question: is there a way to make a changeable template (a sort of 
template, I'd say)? I have a lot of pages to make, and they are all slightly 
the same: the text frames are connected from each page to the next, like in 
the following diagram:

|  |--------|  |
|  |        |  |
|  | text 1 |  |
|  |--------|  |
|              |
||-----| |-----|
||text2| |text3|
||-----| |-----|

So, in each page, text 1 is connected to text 1 in the next and in the 
previous page, and the same for text2 and text3. So I have to create 40 pages 
with the linked text frames, and after that, I have to work on each page, 
changing a little the box size, deciding what will fit in each page. (In 
fact, it's a trilingual document, so I have to align the three portions of 
text). Is there a good way to do that?

Thanks again,

Tiago Saboga.
