So if I do a pdf ebook, you recommend a manual table of contents, correct? And if I do each element as a separate file, how do I combine them into one document?

I've never worked through a linkable TOC in Scribus; I think it would be 
tricky, especially when you're going to join PDFs later.

It's worth looking at the explanation of how to do a semi-automated TOC 
just to see if you can make this work, but again the fact that you might 
be making separate SLA files is problematic.

I don't know your platform (Linux, Windows, MacOS), but in there is 
pdftk available for all 3 which easily allows joining a number of PDFs 
into a single one. If you have page numbers, you have to get that fixed 
in Scribus beforehand.
