Scribus doesnt yet support footnotes

I would not expect Scribus to deal with footnotes. I think a good compromise is for the import function to put all footnotes at the end of the imported text, and keep the numbering (and the footnote number in the text). But it can then be treated as any normal text. This would avoid manually changing footnotes in OOo (which can be a hassle if you have a text with 50 footnotes), and would not require any additional functionality from SCribus, "just" from the importer... Probably more a feature request than a bug then...

This is not just a feature request: In my document all the remaining text in the same paragrah as the footnote disappeared too, like this:
some text(footnote 1) more text

Next paragraph
All the text marked as "more text" has disappeared :-(

See for some relief.
