[scribus] Outline

When I looked at it, it appeared to me as "chemin de fer" in FR and after
digging I found  "thumbnails" in EN.

"Outline" I acknowledge is there since the beginning of Scribus. However, in
all other apps "Outline" means something else and if not, then there are two
meanings for the same word. I know for sure the first meaning. Never heard
of the second one.

It's confusing to lots of people.

The Russian translation seems to be just like the one that should be there
in fr but that is not. Instead we have "Organiser les pages" (Organise
pages) probably because the FR translators (I am one of them) didn't know
how to handle the hot potato.

In Russian the word "stranitsa" if I remember well means a road. I can only
guess we're closer to French than the English original.

We should at least fix the English version or have someone explain why the
word Outline is used here. And a note to translators could help too.
