Hi Owen

Ill try that one later on, but again i have just opened scribus  
1.3.5svn latest one, did a text box, and 4*4 grid, no particualr  
size, no text, no pictures, gone to save as, closed the document, not  
scribus, and it then went to open, and it failed again to open via  
the open dialog box?

any ideas? im just installing QT SDK, just to see if that kicks into  
life any problems?

does anyone know how scribus would react having 2 very different  
versions of scribus on my mac?
