First, you neglected to say what version of Scribus you are using and
what platform - Windows, MacOS or Linux. Sometimes the answer is
different, so please add those facts.

Second, I don't understand exactly what you are doing, but I do
understand "700 pages." Scribus is going to be slower than the second
coming with a document that size. I recommend breaking it up into
smaller files. 

As for the actual issues you are having trouble with, perhaps if you
describe an example of what you want to accomplish it will be clearer.
