>> Zumindest eine Frage kann ich beantworten: Scribus wird bei umfangreicheren Dokumenten derzeit noch langsam, wenn viel Text enthalten ist. Ansonsten (z.B. Fotobuch mit wenig Text) hält sich der Geschwindigkeitsverlust in Grenzen und hängt auch stark von der Hardware-Austattung Deines Rechners ab.

Then it might be possible to rebuild boxes on demand as pages are viewed.

Its a possibility, yes. Let’s see once it gets into trunk. There’s also no reason to not have threads running doing the layout.
