If checked all options changed that can be found from both of the prefs will
be applied to both. Was thinking that this could only be at the dialog level.
For anything more complicated user knows the deal and will need to set both
of those individually.
I'd think that in most of the cases situation is something where a user would
only like to change a single setting and would also like to apply it for all
the future docs too. Something like setting a default font for text frames
and prefs like this. Or making those guides visible (for some reason those
are hidden by default atm). I know these two are the most common scenarios I
hit when working with Scribus. This becomes annoying cause when I notice
these I'm working on a layout (after i've nuked the prefs, which happens
quite often) then I change the current doc settings and forget it until next
time when i start a work with a new doc and have to apply these very same
