Hi folks, isn't this somewhat... :-)
Whenever I have needed a drop shadow in Scribus, I would simply copy the
text frame and slide the lower one a bit (plus little X and Y). If you
want the shadow to appear somewhat grayish, just set the font in that
frame to a gray tone.
The same with a shadow of a frame (that, however, occurs much more
often): Copy the frame, slide the lower one a bit and fill it with a
What I did not yet try is transparency, I only used this on a white
background. As we can fill frames transparently, however, this shouldn't
