I'm using Scribus for an instruction manual translated into several languages. Is there a way to update a text frame, which was already filled by "Get text..." from a plain text file, without loosing all the applied style settings? The problem is: I often get small updates (corrected words, improved) in the text files from the translators.

Is this possible?


This is a well known problem, but i am sorry to tell you that it is "officially not" possible at the moment. Check the official bug report of SCRIBUS if you dont believe me: http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=1791

Nevertheless there is a non-trivial procedere to do this. Check this link for more information: How can I autopopulate text in Scribus from a text file
