That's the whole point!  It has to be made simple, so it doesn't take a
genius or typesetting expert to figure it out.  That's the whole point
of intuitive software, to make it accessible to everyone, not just the
experts.  Scribus is beginning to feel like TeX with a gui lately and
that's not what I thought you guys wanted out of it?  I don't understand
how I can make it any clearer, add columns to the Insert menu, yada yada

What would suggest I write this document with?  ;-)
