[Scribus] I'm puzzled

The key to line spacing (leading) when using different point sizes is;

A) Use the body (story) text point size and leading as the 'key'.

B) Use different text frames for each of the different point sizes used 
(assuming the headings and subs are bigger - there is no need if using 
smaller point sizes).

C) Define the leading as multiplies - that is, if the body text uses a 
leading of 14points then the (bigger point size heading) leading should 
be either 28points (x2), 42points (x3) and so on.  This way everything 
will sit on the baseline.
