Reading books on generic desktop publishing principles would be of more
use than a Quark book. That said, my "unsupported" plugin so that you

hoping to have it in the 1.1 release (I've been looking at the plugin
mechanism source and it will be amongst the top for re-writing!).

You could also get involved by emailing Peter Linnel (the documentation
guru) and helping him out. Scribus really is a simple package to pick


The world is throwing away oppressive regimes
Which don't allow people to choose.
Wars are fought to topple these people.
Yet the folks who do this, still use Windows.
Double standards or not understanding why they did it?
