[Scribus] Moving objects on a page

     hovergo -  this looks just like my initial question several
days ago.  I think what may have happened with you, as it
had with me, is that the newer Scribus had a fully working
defaults menu... and... most people who saw this instantly
typed in their favorite page dimensions... which, if you look
at how this function currently works, has also set this object
move dimension to... well... to whatever unit the chosen page
dimension uses... in my case, it was an INCH... a huge
discrepancy from the nice one PT at a time I had been used
to... so... this isnt an error in Scribus... I have suggested a
possible solution to Craig where POINT could be hardcoded
as the object-move unit, and, users could still select their
local page dimensions.
