> As I already described, I am working with the recent Scribus CVS-Version

> programs work fine and the system is absolutely stable.
> I have the following problem in nearly all the drop-down menus which
> require or ask for numerical input:
> comma-separated input is always reset to zero (for instants margins)
> when you continue with the TAB-shift to the next field; in general,
> numeric input resets vlues to zero.
> Margins (for instance: margins in forms) can never be changed, because
> values are usually zero point something - when trying to change it, the
> value becomes zero and cannot be changed any more.
> Strange in the forms menu (and the properties-window): I can change the
> number of columns by using the dropdownbutton and selecting a value with
> a mouseclick, but not the distance between columns. If the value is
> smaller than one (of course, you will seldom use such narrow gaps, but
> nevertheless...), the value rests frozen as zero.

Kurt - I think that at this time, many people who are specialist of
Scribus are in a same place in Lyon and are not reading this list those
days, because of the LGM.
So I suggest you to wait a few days if you can...
