Here is a shorter version of what I typed this morning.
I opened my book in Scribus, to page 177, the last one. I was mistaken about 175. I forgot to mention last night that almost all the pages have one or two photos. Only a few are all text. I was able to load two photos on page 178, but when doing the second caption box, Scribus crashed. I cleared the page and started again, but had trouble. Closed Scribus then opened the manuscript again. Was able to load one photo on page 178, but then had trouble again. I also had Open Office open with the eBook version of this book, and that is not a problem, I think. I can open a photo in Photoshop Elements, even though it won't load in Scribus. Attached is a screenshot showing what happens sometimes when I try to "get image" on page 178. The X disappears. Anyway, Scribus works fairly well until I get way up in page number, although it will crash any time if I click in the wrong place. I've had that happen numerous times. I just reopen the book manuscript.

I already created a print book with Scribus; 158 pages. I had photos in Tiff format. Then I worked on a second book, also with photos in Tiff format. Got to page 175 and could go no further. It would not load a photo after page 175. I then started over and changed all photos to jpeg format. Got to page 175 and then was blocked again. The big X in the image box changes to read and the file name of the photo is shown across it. Looking at "info", it says "missing", after the other wording. The photo is not missing. I can try other photos, and they will not load. Sometimes, instead of the big X changing to red, it disappears.
I opened a new one page Scribus document, and loaded two photos on it. Worked for that. Seems to me that Scribus will not go past 175 pages. This happened on my laptop which I was using. I then tried it on a desktop computer with a lot more memory. Same problem. Would not load a photo after page 175. Bought a higher capacity memory card for my laptop, then switched back to it, after re-doing most of the book with jpeg images. Got to pg 175 and was stymied. Is there a limit?

I just bought a Candelas plus font, with alternate glyphs that are supposed to work at least on illustrator, photoshop or adobe edition. I've tried to use them on scribus, I've found glyphs linked to this font (by going to insert - caracters - glyphs) but I haven't found the alternate glyphs I'm looking for.
Do you know if I could get access to all of the alternate glyphs of this fount via scribus ?

For reference anyone with the same problem: The default font is under: Document Setup > Item Tools > Text > Text > Font: The font here can be substituted with another font on the system/in the document to get rid of the warning.
