Hi I'm running Sribus 1.4.2 which I downloaded approx. 2 weeks ago.  I have been slowly progressing through the 'Getting Started with Scribus' tutorial and have been stumped at the 'Hanging Drop Caps' section because the text will not flow around the frame.

I add the shape and adjust the positioning as outlined in the tutorial, but when I select the 'Use Frame Shape' option in the 'Text Flows Around Frame' and click out of the Preferences Palette nothing happens.  The text doesn't move at all.  I realize the default position in Scribus is that the 'Text Flows Around Frame' is disabled, but it appears to not operate at all in my copy of the program.  I have experimented with the other options suggested in the palette, just to see if something happened but still nothing changes.

I think Scribus is awesome, especially as I have never tried to learn desktop publishing before.  So, I can appreciate I may have overlooked something that is very simple to rectify. 

I thank you in advance for your help.
