Thanks for your feedback. I haven't followed this closely, but we will have a
look at the JS code and see if all is ok. Its likely that some versions of JS
are now required or no longer accepted or similar in Adobe Reader and what
Scribus is producing is a little old. The JS side of things has not changed
in quite awhile.
It would be a great help if you created a bug on bugs.scribus.net and uploaded
the SLA file and sample PDF with "broken" JS for us to test, so if you don't
mind, please do so when you get a chance. An example makes a big difference
Thanks for your help!
