Hey there,

I quickly hacked together a scibus script that loads the contents of a
url which is saved as text in a text box and then sets the text to the
respective content.

(it is just for text for now)


There has to be done very much to improve it and also format everything

This is also related to this thread
http://lists.scribus.net/pipermail/scribus/2018-March/054999.html and
this bug https://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=1791

(sorry niilos, the previous message was intented to be to the list,
damn, I clicked the wrong button)
