John -

Thank you!  Great help since I knew what to look for: Linking 
Frames.  Of course, I had to learn how to add a page :-).  Slick!

I cannot seem to get help from the Help | Scribus manual... F1.  
Instead, I went to Google and looked for "Scribus Link Frames" 
which took me to the Wiki where there was great help.  What am I 
missing with the F1 approach?

Again, thank you...
