Running Scribus 1.4.1 on WinVista 32-bit...

When I use the import master page dialog, there is an "import" button 
next to the "Cancel" button. the import button is grayed out until I 
select a document from which the master page will be imported.

Do you see the import button? Is it grayed out, or simply not visible at
