Hi - I've been trying to make a simple document with Scribus and I have some 

Firstly, I've hit a nasty bug where the style window disappears with focus-
follows-mouse and the story editor remains greyed out (bug #9289).

1. So, why is the style editor a modal dialog box. Can't it be a non modal 
window? This should cure the bug above at least and make the program be much 
more usable.

2. Why can't you get to the style dialog from the main window? Or can you?

3. Why when you import text does it get "No style". How can you set the 
style when importing? Is there a set style on everything in the Story 

4. How do you get the last line of a paragraph to get a ragged right if 
you're using justification? I get far too much space between the words if I 
enable justification.

I also see if you set the style for a paragraph in the story editor, the 
"Update Text Frame" button remains greyed out. You have to edit text to get 
it to be clickable.
