The usual recommendation is to work by chapter. Your best solution is to separate the text into chapters with LibreOffice.

I created a  Scribus file  in the right size and withabout  250 pages, linked. I loaded the odf file via the  text editor. Now I have the text in scribus. I  began inserting frame/page breaks via the text  editor. Problem is it runsslower  than molasses in February. It is trying to edit all 250 pages  at once. So I would like to separate the pages I  have already marked with a page break  (control/return) fromthe link  string, either  from the front end or the back end. But Scribus  then treats the first page as having all the text  and a huge overflow.  How do I separate some pages fromthe link> string yet retain just their current contents?
