I don't know really... I know that it isn't recommended. I started out  
with PDF 1.3, wich didn't work, so I mailed them an X-3, and they  
didn't complain about it, so I just went on with that. Maybe I'll go  
back to PDF 1.3?

Should I then set Scribus to downsample images to 256 ppi when I  
export the PDF?

I will give You that info in a week or two, because the person who  
have struggled with my files aren't at work the next week...
