[scribus] Font substitution not permanent

I checked the font preferences in the font substitution tab and it is listed
there. It says Arial is being substituted by Hypatia Sans Pro.

I also check the Font Preview in Extras and can't see anything out of the
ordinary other than the fact that Hypatia Sans Pro is an Open type font.

Could it be that because this is an Open type font and Scribus doesn't
support OT fonts (or at least that is what I was told) that is why permanent
font substitution isn't working?

Do you want it fast, good, or cheap? Choose any two.
