   Subject: character palette will not close
I prepare an 8 page newsprint paper every other month.  Last issue in the  
middle of completing the layout a window opened smack dab in the center of my  
screen called character palette and I cannot get it to close, or move it out  
of the way.  Last time I just worked around it as I could not find out how to  
get rid of it.  This time after working on a couple of pages it showed up  
again.  I tried closing and opening the files and just installed 1.3.7 over  
the version I had but still have the problem.  I am working on a Macbook with  
Snow Leopard.  I presume this is a Scribus item as this is the only place it  
shows up.  I can work around it but it is extremely irritating.  Can someone  
tell me how to get rid of this thing?  Clicking on the red x does not work  
and it will not move.  Let me also stay I am a novice both with Mac and  
especially with Scribus, so really, really babystep answers, please.
