[scribus] Resizing entire layouts

My current task is adjusting an existing layout to different formats.
This could be a simple job of just scaling the whole thing, followed by
a few tweaks to fill the gaps caused by a different aspect ratio. It
isn’t in Scribus, due to 2 bugs:
- Scaling a text frame along with font size and line height via
Alt-Drag only works on a single frame.
- Scaling a group works until one ungroups it to edit parts of it, as
then text frames jump back to their initial line height.

Undo after trying either of these is broken, too.

There are old bug reports about these:
Both with severity “minor”. Well, these make Scribus almost unusable
for my current job.

Does anyone here know a workaround?
