On a slightly different point. I noticed very something useful the other 
day, (perhaps I can put in the wiki if I get time). If you have a graph 
in a Spreadsheet, it's quicker to open the file in Gnumeric (there is 
also a Win port of this too ;-) ), then right click the graph or table, 
then just click save as SVG (Vector).

Then in Scribus, File-Import the SVG file and you have a perfect vector 
version of the graph. Using Gnumeric is MUCH quicker then OO, and still 
quicker then the 'open in OO Calc, and then copy to OO Draw then save 
file route' already suggested.

Trouble is this only works for Charts ....

Any comments ???
