It may be a Scribus 1.3.4 issue.  That branch of the evolutionary 
tree went extinct pretty quickly.  Were you able to handle things 
to your satisfaction under earlier releases of 1.3.5?  If so I 
would revert to that earlier 1.3.5 version at least for this doc. 

1.3.4 was never considered stable and 1.3.5 won't be either until it 
is rebaptized as 1.4.0. Let the user beware.
