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 
gray tone.

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 
be too much a problem I guess.

Or did I get you completely wrong here?
