This is being worked on:


 Aha!  It appears that Linux versions differ from Windoze versions. Yes I 
recognize the "T|" icon. On my Scribus it only appears on
 a drop down menu. I'll update my Windoze version of 1.5.3 to see what that 
shows on the icon bar.
 I write for a general audience. I withdrew my 2009 pdf book on using 
Scribus for book covers because a customer complained
 about the diference between my illos and what he saw on his screen. I hope 
the look and feel of e.g. 1.5.3 is close to what we will see on 1.6.0.
