Adobe has active user-to-user forums where skilled and friendly help
is available for most Adobe products. See
Adobe also has a Knowledge Base and links to many helpful resources at
In addition, there are numerous forums and e-mail lists not
affiliated with Adobe that cover Adobe products. See, for example,
http://www.desktoppublishingforum.com , where several InDesign
experts hang out.
The same is true for many high-end commercial products if someone is
willing to search a bit.
This is not to take anything away from Scribus and this excellent
e-mail list and we certainly do have access "to the top," namely,
our developers. But the same type of user-to-user support is
available for many products, both commercial and open source--even
Microsoft products. The user support board for VectorLinux, my
distro, is a gem.
