[scribus] Column break followed by change of style

Yes, I would agree with Teo here. Much easier to do layout by separating 
these elements.

The other thing to consider is keeping each Story Header-Story Body 
combination in its own text frame.

Probably what you're seeing is the effect of having a newline character, 
followed by the column break character.

Each text-frame with own style, each element can be moved/resized/etc without modify others like head.
