[Scribus] Bug in script with smart quote?
Fri Nov 30 22:15:48 CET 2007
Nobody bothered to reply to this message, and I'm still having the
same problem. Does anyone have a working Python script for Scribus
that reads text from a file, replaces straight quotes with smart ones,
inserts the text into a text frame, then sets the style on it? Or can
shed some insight on why the following doesn't work?
This is with Scribus 18.104.22.168 on Windows XP.
