adding a text field and text inside it is quite a drama - and the program still has to add its own frame to the text field, which cannot be changed.
I have been using Scribus since its 1.3.x developmental days, and it's been my regular DTP tool since I moved to Linux full time in 2015. Honestly, I'm amazed how close it comes to commercial-grade tools out there like InDesign and QuarkXPress. This is a surprisingly capable program which supports color management, lets you reconstruct your own colors in addition to the wide array of palettes already built in. The fact that the program's development team has been able to take Scribus this far considering all the copyright, trademark, and patent-encumbered elements there are to the printing industry is honestly a tribute to their skills, talents, and passions. I've used this program to successfully create materials for use on Café Press, for business cards, for menus, and even sign boards.
Being able to Edit PDF's is fantastic. I wish there were more editors. But its a great publishing tool.
Excelente programa para hacer maquetación editorial. Te sirve perfectamente para editar diarios, revistas, etc, tanto en PDF como en impresos. Se parece en su facilidad de uso y posibilidades a Quarkxpress. Uno de los mejores software libres, aun no tiene alternativa parecida en software ibre.
Берите Scribus-ng, (версия 1.5.5) работает отлично!
wouldn't open my already existing simple pdf files from the gitgo. If it can't do that flawlessly from the start, it's a non-starter.
A really great tool for creating PDFs - zines, flyers, books and more. Easy to learn, but powerful.
It takes some time to switch from Indesign but working with it after the transition is a blast. A new version to fix some old bugs would be great though.
Excellent. Works as well as InDesign does, only Scribus is faster, free and cross-platform, so it's a lot better.
Best application for publishing as DTP
the best publishing software...
A complete pro tool for publishing.
A very feature rich and powerful Desktop Publishing program. There is a bit of learning curve but there are lots of online tutorials to begin with. Once you get a feel then you become more productive. All the tools needed are there.
The essential tool for printed media output. Totally rocks.

Muy completo y al mismo tiempo sencillo. Los resultados son espectaculares.
it's worth every minute to learn this tool, got great results for posters and small magazines.
a bit complicated to deal with the menus/options - but for sure - the best you can get for Linux...
