Yes, it does... and I shall try that next time. Thank you very much.

However, the complexity of this process suggests the explicit question: are
there any plans to include a flattening feature in Scribus?


PS Probably the final result for lulu doesn't have to be 1.3; it probably
just needs to be flat (assuming that you and I mean the same thing by
"flattened"... I mean that the pixel-by-pixel representation is identical
to the layered representation, so that, for example, gradients appear
correctly, even though everything is on a single layer).
