[Scribus] Maintaining text with scribus

Workflow? OK, I can identify errors out of Scribus and correct them in 
there, but you can recognize this is not the ideal way. It would be 
better to get the text corrected inside the story editor with a spell 
checker. But another solution that I used, especially for translation 
purposes, was to export all the texts (in individual .text files) and 
then import the translated text into scribus. Translaters work better 
with text files.

Encoding? Yes it is an encoding problem, but not the encoding of the 
framelist.py script itself. What is at stake is the correct encoding 
relation between the original scribus text and the resulting .txt file. 
There should be a function in some library used by the story editor, but 
which one?

Frames linked . You are right. framelist.py repeats the whole text on 
each linked frame loation, which can be quite a lot with a book.

Thanks again
