That's a valid point!

I tried to follow the currentt tutorial and just downloading it  
proved a stumbling block. There are some huge graphics and one which  
always caused an error. I tried copying and pasting tediously into  
TextEdit; regardless of how I went about it, I still did not get all  
of it to study. So any advance on that situation will be welcome :-).

I understood from reading somewhere, forget where, that the current  
Tutorial laid out good guidelines for basic dtp design. If so, then  
that is equally as important as how to use Scribus. But I do think  
that they are two different threads and it might be a way of  
attracting more users if some basics of both design and software use  
were illustrated in a straightforward way.

Perhaps the next tutorial/s could be made into a pdf so they can be  
downloaded and studied at leisure, even printed. I'd be happy to be a  
proof reader.
