[Scribus] Help with pdf import

I'm not an expert, so wait from the Scribus guys on this :
In Scribus, PDFs can only be imported as images / pictures.  The fonts in
your PDF will be converted as pictures.  And you'll get mostly bad results.
I had to do once something a bit similar as what you want to do.  It took me
a good deal of time:
In the PDFs, I selected the text and put it in Scribus text frames.  I then
took care of the 'pictures'.  Basically, I had to recreate the PDFs pages
into Scribus pages.

I hope it helps
