As far as i can experiment it with scribusn, when doing so, the requested glyph
is not inserted : when inserting a dingbat i can only see an empty square lagter in the frame.
It seems only the code of the glyph has been inserted.
I have to select the empty square backward and then apply it the requested font
by choosing it again, this time in the property palette.
I cant believe this is the way it should be or is it ?
