Hi all,
  I'm having problems with Scribus-1.3.5svn (the latest build for 
debian from the Scribus repositories). 

First, I imported a Scribus-1.3.3.x file into Scribus-1.3.5svn, which 
worked fine. It needed some tweaking, as text renders slightly 
different, but that's OK.

However, I had a problem with one text frame on one of my master pages 
- whenever I tried to edit this specific frame, Scribus crashed with 
signal 11. The workaround was to delete this text frame, and create a 
new one. Then it was fine, and Scribus stopped crashing. 

Now I'm having another problem:
I have a text frame for an article. I have several paragraph styles 
defined, and want to apply those to different paragraphs in the 
article. However - it does not seem to apply them at all. I can do what 
I want, fonts and styles don't change.

I don't have the same problem with other text frames though - which 
confuses me.

I deleted and recreated the text frame in question several times, but 
I always have the same problem... I'm now trying to think of a 

Any tips welcome.
