Does it work for you if you don't use the Story Editor? I never use
it, instead working directly in the text boxes. But you must learn how
to handle Paragraph and Characters Styles to get the result you want.

For newbies I can recommend my guide "How to make a four page leaflet
using Scribus - a 40-page guide for Scribus, Inkscape and GIMP" which
you can download for free at:

Good luck!

> Have recently dowloaded Scribus and am endeavouring to develop a one page poster.  My problem is that whatever I create on the story editor is rarely updated on the document.  After two hours have managed to get one small text box with the right font, colour and text, but the other just refuses to update.  I've ended up with one line in miniscule print and the others in larger print, but the font isn't coming across at all even tho I'm using Ctrl A to highlight the whole page.
