When I actually imported the external file each line formed its own
paragraph, so my problem was not one of breaking lines apart but rather
meging lines together. I did space delete at the end of each line to merge
it with the next. Is there a quicker way to merge individual lines into a

Thanks. Now my next question. I imported a text file which was originally
intgened for a TeX variant. It runs several pages in Scribus. In several
places there are \input statements or their equivalent, which inserts
another file at that point. The story editor does not seem to have a
facility for such an insertion, it is all or nothing. So do I have to
break up the text in segments with the inserts in between? If so how do I
break up what is now one large text frame flowing over several pages to
I can of course break up the text file externally before importing it in an
editor but that seems like a bore. But maybe that is the best/only way.
