[scribus] Importing tables

	I was out a few days.

	Many thanks for all contributions.

	I just tried the way described in the Help (I do not kneed it), and
it works well. The major disadvantage, as for importing pdf files, is that
if you have to do any changes, you have to do the whole process again. As I
almost always am the authors of the documents, I often do little changes
until the last minute!!
	So, I still prefer the importing csv files which create tables that
may be easily changed after creation, and csv files are very easy to create.
By the way, does nobody test my script; I do not got any feedback.

	At present time, the unique possibility I really miss is the
automatic vertical centring of the whole text in a textbox. A possibility
which would be interesting not only for tables... and if I understand well
will be present in the 1.5 version of Scribus!
