Hi Tony and welcome to Scribus!

Here is what you're looking for :

Please browse the bugs archives by doing simple searches and reading 
the discussions. In addition, there is an article in the wiki on how 
to report bugs. Basically what we want to avoid is duplicating bugs. 
At the same time, we don't want to miss a bug. So it's a matter of 
doing the best possible effort to find out wether the bug has been 
reported. In doubt, report it. We'll track it down anyway.
