I had similar issues to the OP and have gained knowledge from this
thread - thanks!
I've got 2 Macs - one a G4 running Leopard with 768mb RAM and the
other a MacBook running Leopard, with 4gb RAM. What version of Scribus
do you recommend that I run? For file compatibility, does it need to
be the same version on both machines?
Thanks for your help.
