no, no deficient in Scribus text handling.
the fact is that they are different people working on the text and
these changes have not familiarity with Scribus,
I am also seeing a layout with Scribus, I prefer that no one besides
me operate on file with the risk, not knowing Scribus to change
sensitives parameters...
...and further complicate things do not all live in the same city

only font kind and size...
