+ OK Joan... I'll try to help with your questions.
SVG and EPS are file formats... if you dont use these, no need
to worry about them... for people who work with these a lot, it's
just nice that Scribus accepts them.
     The text flow question... well... it does work, but really
I would recommend working one page at a time... you can
always cut and paste from the previous page to achieve virtually
the same effect.  This may be bug-free in, but Ive had a
bunch of problems with it, thus my suggestion.
   Your story editor problem sounds like more, you didnt click
the "update and exit" button in the editor itself... this has always
worked flawlessly for me.
     I personally dont use Heading styles... however, it is
very simple to highlight and select these, and then edit via
properties menu.
     Thats about the best I can do with your questions... Im sure
you can find better advice if this isnt sufficient.
