[Scribus] Novice Enthusiasm
Sat Sep 13 04:44:04 CEST 2003
Forgive a little enthusiasm from one who has just started trying to
learn DTP in
the last few weeks. After downloading scribus 1.1.0 with fink
(thanks to Martin Costabel),
I had much better luck with Franz Schmid's tutorial with this
version. It was so neat watch
the front page of the newsletter unfold on my own computer.
I finished my first solo document today -- the poster for my
barbershop chorus' show.
It was SO much easier this year than last when I used (ugh) Word for
the same task.
I put text at an angle, included images, used the guides, and
everything. I am much more
confident at being able to use scribus successfully for the show
program. Again, I used
Word for the last two years. By last year I started to realize that
there is a difference between
word processing and DTP, but was not able to change my process on our
aging Mac. Now,
with a new iMac, I am venturing into the unknown. I have a long way
to go, but I'm
excited with all I have to learn.
