I beg to differ. I've been using typesetting and layout programs since 
the Compugraphic and the 8088. Scribus is harder to get going in than 
any other DTP or layout program I've used in 20+ years. It's like an HP 
calculator compared to a TI 20 years ago. It works, I guess, but 
intuitive it is not. I wasn't taught that way so it's hard to relate to. 
The docs are hard to follow and there is not much in the way of real 
world examples to work through to get your head around it.

I'm sorry, but as a very new, but skilled DTP, Scribus user, I have to 
agree with Pat.
