But if I resize the Render Frame to be more than about 4.8 inches tall (it doesn’t seem to be consistent), I get the “Failed to load an image” error. I can see the file in the location that Scribus claims it cannot load.

Hi John,

There may be a clue from what I did when I exported to the /tmp folder. It may be that Scribus doesn't have permission to delete from /tmp, that's why the .aux and .log files were there.

The other thing to check would be to run Scribus from a console. Often there is feedback there while processes are running.
