Thanks for confirming it was not an isolated problem I was having. I'll
check out the wish list.
This should not be a low priority issue.Having worked as a production
artist for the past twelve years, I would love to move away from the
MAC/Quark/Adobe dominated industry to a free software solution. You
can't produce anything you can't see and it's a major waste of time and
resources to print out each and every change to see what it actually
looks like. By even solving this a little bit you would be making a huge
stride in advancing Linux and Scribus into the MAC/Quark/Adobe dominated
Just my thoughts
