Oh! I did not realize that. I am not yet a serious user of Scribus. I
keep watching here hoping that eventually I will be able to use it for
everything. So far I have used it just for a few small jobs. 

I did place a PDF and I noticed that the screen view was fuzzy. I
assumed that was just a screen view and that the font embedded in the
PDF would be used for printing. Assuming what you say is true, then I
need a different tool. What Linux program can I use to place PDFs on a
multiple page document?
