     Subject: Gimp is missing
Love the program - am TRYING to use it to make a brochure and am having  
problem with importing an SVG image from Inkscape 0.47.  When I copied the  
image and pasted it and when I imported it (yes I tried ti oth ways) to an  
image box that I created in Scribus, it says Gimp is Missing.  Gimp is not  

I've read the FAQ, did a web search and tried the solution presented in one  
of the FAQs about going to file > preferences > external tools and gimp is  
listed as the Image Processing Tool.  I even restarted my computer hoping  
something would finally click and all would work well.  It didn't.  Writing  
this e-mail is my last resort.

I know all of you are busy and are probably tired of people like me that  
don't really know more about the Scribus program other than how to enter text  
into the text boxes.  So if any of you can help me figure out what I need to  
do to get them to play nice with each other, would you please list the  
process in very simple, step by step terms (it can't be too dummied down for  
me).  Please don't say - Associate x with z - cause then I'll be wondering  
how associations are done.

So, please help me if you can - if not - have a good holiday season - Donna
