I'm finishing one book with Scribus. ( 370 pages ) Everything is ok so far. (  
I had to split the whole book to four pieces coz Scribus crashes if I try to  
import the whole book.) but I can't find the way how to separate words with  
coma ( don't know english name for that function.) to fill the gap when   
words  are   too    separated    in   one  line. So I'm look-
ing for some-
thing like that to separate long words. Is there any function for that.

Working the whole week with scribus ( literary coz I'm also learning how to  
work with Scribus along with preparing a book for a print ) had only two  
wishes. Better implementation with footnotes. ( yeah I know, through the html  
:-/ ;-)  and secondly ability to also export separate styles for having them  
somewhere on the disk ( and not importing all the styles from the file )

btw.. I don't know how common is my next wish, but sometimes I miss some  
notepad like window for putting some txt in to it for further use. ( in case  
if I have to separate some text using it in few chapters. Yeah I know - a bit  
exotic wish :-)

btw great program and thanks in advance for all your answers.

btw I'm using 138 version for windows. I know- it is not so stable, but so  
far, don't have much troubles with that. The only bug I found was that when  
importing odd master pages it overdraw all the values from start. ( when I  
want to add something on odd page from pages 123 till 280 it always put that  
from page 1 till 280, so I need to start on last page adding chapters and  
than going slowly back till the number 1)
