I'm using Scribus 1.4.0 on Ubuntu 11.04. And I'm a newbie Scribus user. Searched around on the internet (forum and bug report) but found no reference to the following.
I have a text box with a gradient (horizontal or free lineair). There are three vectors. A white one at 0%, another white one at 100% and a custom color green one at 50%. The text has a custom color blue and is flowing around an image shape.
When I export to a PDF, a white vertical line is clearly showing at the place of the center vector. When I move the vector, the line also moves along. If I move the vector far enough to the right, the line will disappear.
I don't know if the line also shows on paper after printing.
