wow! are you using the scribus viagra premium version? :-)

what do you mean that the spacing is increasing? if the space between 
the baselines doesn't change when the fonts gets smaller, you simply 
have to set an automatic line spacing for the frame (you will find it in 
the paragraph styles or in the text tab of the properties palette) 
instead of the fixed one, scribus uses by default.

and no, i don't want to consider the second option, where the line 
spacing would really increase when shrinking the letters... that would 
be a funky bug!

have a nice evening
