Thinks for the reply.
Gvim to the rescue! I just used the
command just below each Context (TeX)
command and everything was inserted fine. I'll have to create a special
style of course for the program segments.
Now I have just one additional request. I use Scribus 1.5.0
When I import a text file Scribus puts each line in its own paragraph. Is
there a way to just highlight a group of lines and combine them in one
paragraph? That would save some time for the non-program segments.
