Hi :)
This issue is solved for me now.  Already! :))

Thanks for the links to their support! :)  Charles' link was a huge help.
The support links might help later on though.

I had kinda figured that this work-flow would mean i'd be using even less
of Writer's features for this than i do now and that i wouldn't be making
much use of Scribus' features either.  However it does deal with some petty
issues, increases flexibility and simplifies certain things.

Many thanks to everyone who helped with this
Regards from
Tom :)

I do my company newsletter in Writer but want to do the finishing
touches in Scribus.

The proper way to do this is to do your writing in Writer and then use
the ODT import ability of Scribus. You can use styles in your ODT
document and Scribus will import them. After importing you can use the
advanced text features of Scribus to enhance the styles.

However, layout programs like Scribus will not import much more, e.g.
footnotes, page numbering, margins and such will be discarded, so
don't bother formatting in Writer beyond styles. But that's what you
want; you want to do the writing in LO and the layout in Scribus.

You can actually do the writing in Scribus as well, but Scribus lacks
some of the word processor features that Writer has such as autocorrect,
drag and drop text, and lots more.

There's a lot more to say about a marriage of Scribus and LO for
newsletters and other format-heavy documents, but this is not a Scribus
mailing list. I suggest you subscribe to the Scribus listserve:
