well, yes but... well... i support the idea of a SDI (or non-MDI) scribus, since my window manager does a wonderful job in managing the windows if their are freed from the application!

most mac users also think that way.

and most modern GUI apps work that way.

still, the suggestions with the buttons in the bar works for the meantime...
