Dear Greg,

I had hoped for something like this. So I mark your suggestions as "The
Answer" and thank you. I believe "album" is the French name for "Scrapbook".

I will do this with our intern next week - for the new logo - and if it
works fine for her, will train the entire team about this new trick. We
have several logos and items which keep coming up in our publications.
So we can have one master folder on our office NAS and then each user
will create their own scrap book.

I love your hint about placing items from the Scrapbook. I had myself
discovered by chance that I can copy and paste location-stably within a
Scribus document or between two open Scribus documents if I take care
not to select any other item before pasting; before that discovery,
pasting always felt rather erratic.

good weekend and thanks again,
