i don't really get the problems you guys are facing.

it would be helpful if you could upload somewhere
(framapic? framadrop?) screenshots and sample
you can then post here the links and we can probably have a better
grasp at what your trying to achieve.

while scribus misses some feature that would simplify the work with
"floating" texts and images, i have the feeling that:

- you are missing some scribus features and/or
- you could improve your work by simplifying a bit the "structure" of
  your document

but, as said, hard to say (at least for rme...) what exactly you're
trying to achieve... and give you better hints :-)

buon anno a tutti
