[Scribus] scribus 1.3.* /&/ ng object problem

* Craig - ahhhhh... ok... I see the problem - BUT - I do
have one other answer to run by you :-)
How about adding a "nudge distance" setting to the
default Properties dialog ? For instance, it might offer the
"use page unit for nudge distance ?"
"use [unit from list] for nudge distance ?"
So far as picking an arbitrary setting for Inch users,
I far prefer using points... if you're set on adding one for
inches, how about 1/64s ?
