i tried to reproduce it in 1.3.6svn and i could see any problem: you can probably consider the bug fixed in the next scribus version!


ps.: the next stable release will be 1.4 and there won't be any version.

i think it would help the team if everybody experiencing a problem in
would check if it still applies in 1.3.6svn:

- for linux you can add the scribus own repositories and
  install the scribus-ng package (debian, ubuntu and opensuse)

- for windows you can download a snaphsot of 1.3.6svn from the
  sourceforge repository (http://sourceforge.net/projects/scribus/files/)

you can install scribus and the unstable version (currently 1.3.6) side by side,
but -- since you can't open 1.3.6 files with -- you may be careful
before starting to use 1.3.6 for production!
