OK. Does it mean it is never possible? Or in some cases not possible. I was playing with a 
plain design containing one text field with simple text, nothing else.

Does the N shortcut function as a tool linking frames? I selected two text boxes, pressed N 
and then tried to export but only the content of one text box was written to a file.

Anyway, the export function is a bit strange as it never warns if I want to overwrite an existing 
text file. I played with both creating and overwriting text files but same result each time.

Thank you anyway for such a fast response! I really appreciate it! Especially that I 
desperately wish to divorce MS Publisher and marry Scribus, only that bride is giving me 
some rough time ;)

Warm regards,
