Hi genius ;)

You may be interested in the ingenious interplay between Scribus 1.4.x and AOO.org/LO. 

Here's an instruction:

1) Start Scribus

2) Open a new doc (or don't)

3) Click "Help"

4) Click "Scribus Manual"

5) Click on "Documentation" in the Help Browser

6) Go to the "Import" section

7) Click on "Scribus and OpenOffice.org/OpenDocument"

8) Learn how to import tables into Scribus with all formatting and colours intact
