[scribus] Font problem

	For a local use there will be no problem. However, the pdf file has
to be distributed and it is very embarrassing to distribute a file
generating an error message!

	I fear that the problem is in the Symbol regular font.
	I do not understand why the message speaks about SymbolMT font.

	I would like to use another font, and for this purpose, I have added
a local font directory (Windows one) in the font preferences. This is only
possible with no open document. The problem is that if I open a new document
the added font directory is no more present!

	I would have also liked to try the Symbol regular font under
Windows, however, I do not found this font in the Scribus files!

	Any help is welcome,

In general I think it's safe to ignore such messages as long as you find
no problems with your layout.
There are situations in which Scribus may include a font which is not
actually ever used. The most common example is when you might have a
default font set for text frames, but have altered this to something
else in the document, so no characters actually use the font, even
though it's still the default.
