Hi Ian,

I wonder why you are working in such a complicated way, but then I don't know 
your project.

If I were you, I wouldn't do any formatting in OO.o at all and create all the 
paragraph styles in Scribus instead, especially if I were "only" producing a 
poster. That way , I'd save myself a lot of trouble :)
