I will not file additional bugs, as I guess that everything is connected:

1) Fonts management is a mess (many times if you choose a font, this is not kept)
2) Fonts replacement doesn't work (it is a mistery for me why scribus says that
he has to change Arial fonts  with Arial regular!!!
3) When operator says to quit Scibus, Scribus says that he crashed due to signal #11

Same condition :
[cal] copy and paste with evolution calendar [widget: dayview]


Comment 3 antonio montagnani 2008-04-21 08:42:23 UTC
I think that upgrading to scribus should solve the problem.
Please note that is available for F8 since January on sourceforge!!!!

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 05:37:50 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 5 Michael Schwendt 2008-05-26 23:47:36 UTC
This is likely related to the fonts issues in bug 446149 that
affects all text-edit operations.

Comment 6 antonio montagnani 2008-05-27 11:04:56 UTC
It affects also copying and pasting an image, I suppose that is not connected to
any other bug but upgrading scribus version should solve the problem as per my
comment #3
