no problem here (macOS 10.11.6/scribus 1.5.2 and 1.5.3svn) – textboxes and graphics are visible, no matter, how often I close and reopen the file.

@bogoberi did you install via DMG or did you build from source/homebrew ?

and still, there seems to be an issue somewhere,2251.0.html

in the ux, in the preferences or in the code...

Craig on IRC:
He says he can reproduce the bug in 1.5.2 but says it works correctly in 1.5.3svn
<MrB> very weird
<MrB> that file is somehow corrupt
<MrB> if i select one item and set the stroke colour to something else, i can then see the whole document
<MrB> they a) need to back up the file
<MrB> b) find a text frame and set the stroke colour to something other than none
<MrB> click around and it might refresh and be ok
<MrB> save
<MrB> there must be something in the file

So we're not sure what changes but he has offered a workaround for now, @bogoberi
