Hi. Does Scribus on Mac run in X Windows? If so, you can likely use
the X Windows window move key combo of ALT+Mouse.

For example, on my Linux (X Windows) desktop, if I press ALT Key and
click anywhere on a window, I can move the window as if I clicked on
the title bar. IIRC, this was true for X Windows on Mac OS X as well
(don't have my macbook anymore to test, though)
