i don't know where you get that...

there is no need to close the document to change the scribus settings.
this is what the preferences menu entry is for.

"document settings" changes the settings for the current document.
"preferences" changes the default settings applied to the future documents.

for the few preferences that cannot changed while a document is open, 
you get a big warning in the concerned preferences tab.

life is already complicated enough with what we have... no need to talk 
about even worse cases that do not apply :-)
