The main print is done on a s/w laser printer, so colors don't matter that
much. But some re-prints will be done in color and I therefore wanted to have
everything complete for not having to create a second version.
PDF/X just makes me feel better I haven't forgotten anything. As long as
Scribus work correctly I know fonts are embedded and I can't forget it (as I
could with PDF 1.4). But no matter if I create PDF/X or PDF 1.4, the page
order wasn't done right :-)

I've meanwhile done that. After finding an older Multivalent version that
contained PDF tools ... :-(
