addendum: scribus won't be able to manage a text flow of 150 to 300

you should break you document in several files of about 50 pages.

you should also create text flows which are just a few
pages (about 10?) long.

if this is not possible for you, there are good chances that:

- scribus is not the right tool for the work you are currently planning


- you are not planning correctly you work.

on top of it, it may also be that scribus is not mature enough for that

have fun
