Once again, congratulations to Franz, Paul, and all the other folks who 
have made Scribus what it is. Not being a programmer, I can't help too 
much in this respect.

What I can do is analyze the interface and usability of Scribus. Franz 
has implemeted one or two of my ideas, but I have a whole series 
waiting. I'm guessing others do, too.

What I propose is that we form an informal usability team to talk over 
ideas on making Scribus easy to learn and easy to use. It's good now, 
but it can be better. Please write me either off- or onlist if you are 

PS: Sorry for posting three times in one evening.

PPS: Thanks to those who offered advice on my troublesome file. Sure 
enough, it was corrupted during the upload. I've fixed it.

If elections are just something where you go in, you push a button,
and go home, then it doesn't make much difference which button you push.
