[scribus] Scribus PDF questions (Ian "Witty" Whitfield)

Hi all

I have just finished, and posted out, my latest Journal for March 2011. 
And I still have the 'Hotlinks' not working problem!!

I selected PDF 1.3 for my conversion and all fonts embedded this 
produced a 6.5Mb file and the 'Hotlinks' work in it just fine.

I then did the "PDF Reduction" as detailed on the Scribus Wiki, (the 
same way I have always done it!), and this reduced the file down to 
1.6Mb but the 'Hotlinks' now no longer work!!

With Scribus 1.3.9 I did not have this problem and there are backnumbers 
on my WebSite that show this. Since moving to Scribus 1.4 I have had 
this problem.

I have tried the finished, reduced PDF in Ocular, Adobe and FoxIt and in 
all cases the 'Hotlinks' do not work in any of them.

It looks as if there may be a 'Bug' in 1.4?????

Any comments would be appreciated!

My OpSys is Kubuntu 10.04
