very confusing that the different DTP related programs call and place the butons
differetly. In one case I almost lost my work. Well this trigered my little usability study.
Others are probably much more clued up, but perhaps my lines strike a cord and it
doesw good to all of us.
I did a comparison and found that when you close a document that is not save each

Would it be possible between the DTP related programs to unify this a bit more. I could
imagine it woold help the end users. Well this is only my view and perhaps there are
things I overlook. I know this should also be discussed with The Gimp, Sodipodi,
Inkscape etc people. But I thought here at Scribus must of us use all of them. So let the
