I have never tried importing music into scribus before. I tried to import an 
EPS file as a graphic but it treated it as having 72dpi  resolution, a bad 
decision.  If there is a way around this I would be pleased to be educated on 
the point. 

Then I tried creating a document directly from a PS file which was typeset by 
my favorite music layout program, Mup.  The notes, lyrics etc. all appeared 
but only the bottom line of the 5 lines of the staff showed up.  The same 
effect ocurred with a PS file and with an EPS conversion of that file. That 
is even worse. 

It is a problem possibly not worth solving since I can always import into Gimp 
and save as a bitmap with sufficiently high dpi. But I am curious why the 
Scribus PS file conversion routines miss part of the PostScript file.  I 
doubt that the staff lines are bitmapped. 

Would anyone care to play with the PS file as generated by Mup?
