It was clear that there was some thing in my workflow that wasn’t 
correct so I went to investigate today.

1	In Scribus 1.4.1 having inserted a text frame and right clicked on 
the mouse it will automatically offer a “Doc File” import system.
2	The above needs to be changed a little. First go to the dropdown menu 
to select “Open Office, odt files. It will show “OpenDocument text 
Documents” as shown in my screen shot.


That will import Bold, Italics, and Underline. I am now going it 
investigate what other stiles it can import.

A work of caution, don’t set the option of “OpenOffice.org Writer 
Documents as this will only import without stiles.
