a few days ago I asked the same question (see below) and nobody answered. It seems, that users of Windows are not too popular here.  ;-)
I don`t know whether I was exactly doing what is considered right, but at least it worked 5 minutes ago. Get the following zipped file which I just packaged for you (I hope that`s legal), unzip and copy it over your Scribus\share\templates directory:

BTW, Scribus is a great program and I hope that it will prosper, even if it should be for us lowly windows users.  ;-)   But I still miss drag and drop.  :-)





I`m new to DTP and Scribus. I was very impressed by an apple demo of what and how fast DTP can do today:

The keys to fast DTP seem to be good templates and "drag and drop". In the windows edition of Scribus only 5 templates are included. I searched the web and found:
scribus-template_1.2.1.orig.tar.gz and
I could open the archives (with "Total Commander" with rpm-plugin), but what to do next? What do I have to do that they are offered as templates within Scribus (Windows)?

Do you have any plans to include "drag and drop" for Scribus (Windows)? It`s working from my picture database (Picasa, for Windows/Linux) to Openoffice and to Thunderbird. It would be nice for Scribus, too.
