Thanks for the update. I've never used Corel, so I can't say if it is
any better or not. We have a tabloid sized xerox printer with support
for Adobe Postscript 3, but I was hoping for something a little more
simple than using ghostscript as suggested. I'm not sure what the
linescreen setting in scribus are supposed to do, as I don't get any
different output when printing with acrobat 7. I am hoping somebody can
tell me the optimal way to use the built in settings so that there is an
easy way for the students to do the printing after I get through setting
everything up.

Thanks again
