[scribus] Font substitution not permanent

That is probably what was meant by Scribus not supporting OTF. Of course it
supports using the OTF font I am using because that is what I am doing.
Using it that is. The most important glitch for me is it won't embed and
subset the font in my PDF documents. At least the version I am working with
doesn't. Maybe by now it is capable of doing it in these newer versions. I
can fix that with Acrobat Professional though so at least there is a work
around. Most of the stuff I am working on isn't destined for the printing
press but for online consumption.

Thanks for clarifiying that.

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