I wrote this script some years ago:


At the bottom of the page is a version that will work with 1.5.x versions of Scribus. It used to show up when you looked at Script > Scribus Scripts from the menu. It should still be findable, in a directory called samples. In a Linux install, it would be in /usr/share/scribus/samples. With Windows, somewhere in the Scribus program directory.

You can also copy it from the wiki, paste to an empty text file, then save as extract-text.py somewhere you can find it easy.

The script saves all the text from a Scribus document. It will follow linked frames.
