Hi Axel,

This is the expected behaviour when removing a frame from a linked chain.

You might find convenient to re-import your text in the new layout (thus 
either saving it first from the SE into a seperate text file and then 
use a WP to split your text or by going back to your preferred WP where 
the original text came from and split the text at this level, instead of 
manipulating it in Scribus).

What I understand is you want to split into smaller entities a somewhat 
long text. There is no easier way that I know to achieve this.
