Building my first book cover in Scribus. So far the following
problems to be dealt with.

1. I don't find a way to establish a uniform background color
for the whole page. So as I create each block of text etc. I am
coloring them individually. Is there a way to just color the
whole page?

2. I need to rotate the text for the spine 90 degrees. I can do
it in Gimp, rotate there, and then import it as a graphic but
there should be a more direct way.

3. I put a graphic on the front page. Now I want to put white
text over the top of it. I don't seem to be able to see the text
at all. I colored the background of the text block 0 opaque.
The text doesn't show whether I color it black or white.

Any hints would be helpful.
