Working just from the sla version I saw the grey drop shadow in the 
Scribus window but the grey turned to black when I printed it out 
from scribus. When I saved the file as pdf and viewed it the page was 
reversed right to left!

Clearly some problems here. I did not have Gill Sans available to 
Scribus so I substituted a different font. I have Linux Slackware 11.

It may be time to revert to for production until these and 
other problems get sorted out.
