Ah! Thank you! ;-)

This gives me the opportunity to say again how it would be useful to 
have a Super Search & Replace into Scribus. For such tasks where you 
need to do 10 Searches / Replacements in a row, looking after 
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-0 in such font and changing it to another... Why do 10 
Searches? Why not do only one, with all the occurrences? Wouldn't that 
be something?! *No other DTP app has this capability* (afaik)
