How do I select and import the proper page from a multi page pdf file?

dunno if Scribus will let you import one page or a range

easy work around would be to just use something like pdfshuffle, pdf arranger, or even inkscape to isolate the pages you want

scribus will open a window asking what page(s) you want to include from the pdf  into your document, you can specify individual pages with commas, (maybe even spaces) or ranges by separating the range with a '-' (minus,dash, hyphen).
just treat the pdf as a .sla when opening.

That would be nice, but that's not what is happening.
Not opening any new window to specify the pagenumber but just importing a random page from the .pdf, most times the first page.
What am I doing wrong?

What version of Scribus are you using?

Exactly what commands to you do?

hi gerard

when you place your .pdf file in an image frame you have to select the page later in the 'image properties'.
the window to select a page renge or a single page shows if you open a .pdf file with scribus.

Ah that explains it...
Just open the pdf ad you would any other .sla file. Use file/open and navigate to the pdf you want to open. You should get a window that will ask what pages you want.
