hi jessica,

 >>i can confirm: even in 1.3.5 (or 1.5... i have to get used to the new 
name :-) line handles don't snap to guides
 >>can you post a bug to bugs.scribus.net

the problem is, that proposition on the mailing list can't be retained 
by  the devs.

posting a bug report won't be much more than copy pasting the content of 
your mails into bugs.scribus.net...
you've put much energy in the proposals you've made... it would be sad 
if they get lost*!
(the biggest step, is to ask for an account...)

use it and make your friends use it!

the devs assume you will use the PP beacause it *is* the core, the 
control center of scribus.
if you don't use it, you will miss most of the scribus functionalities 
(and it's just a F2 away...)

however, you're making very good suggestions and i hope that they will 
get implemented*!

have fun

* since the proposition are well formulated and interesting, i may put 
them in the bug reporting system myself... but not before this evening...
