Since he wants to use Scribus but wants to massage the
text in another program I suggested the LaTeX exit from
recent versions of Scribus. You and I agree that he probably
can do what he needs in Scribus directly. But if he wants to
massage the text externally after placing it in the Scribus
document then the LaTeX exit is probably the most
I don't know what he finds deficient in Scribus text handling.
He can set up linked frames etc. an import his text. But he
can answer that better than I.
