Thanks for the messages even though they are rather disappointing. I
appreciate that things have to be prioritised but it is interesting that
others have requested some form of imposition routine.

Will continue to use Scribus where possible to keep my hand in but will
have to use Ovation Pro for all the work which requires tricky output.

Best wishes
