Scribus Version 1.3.8 21 July 2010 Build ID: C-C-T-F-Q-Mac/Aqua using  
Ghostscript verion 8.71

Newbie attempting to use Scribus. I am working through the "Get Started with  
Scribus" tutorial. I inserted an Image Frame. Following the instructions of  
the tutorial, I selected Windows > Properties...   No dialog box (properties  
palette) appeared. I carefully chected that my Image Frame was selected. I  
worked two hours on this problem and searched the internet and bug lists. I  
found an entry: http://www.scribus.net/?q=node/158/submission/502  (actually  
submission/498 to 503) with the same problem. No solution.

Please help. Did I install the wrong version of Scribus? TIA.


ps: the user support mailing list entry form does not provide sufficient  
options in the Version/OS/CPU/Build Date section of the form. I had to select  
incorrect options in order to post my question.
