You can tell which font is OpenType or TrueType by simply taking a look
at the icons in front of fonts in Scribus's "Properties" palette. In
drop-down list of fonts you'll notice "OTF" icon for OpenType fonts,
"TTF" icon for TrueType fonts and "1PS" icon for PostScript Type 1 fonts.

Also, you can embed any OpenType font into your document by unchecking
"Subset" checkbox for that particular font in "File > Preferences >
Fonts". After that, you can choose to embed OTF fonts when creating a
PDF file instead of to create outlines. I hope some of devs would
explain why this isn't set as default, since it is very likely that most
people would want to embed their fonts, not outline them.
