Thanks Calum,

I checked in on this - PSUTILS and Kprinter. I'm running on Windows so that
rules out the latter and I don't have the computer savvyness to really make
sense of the former. But if this is the extent of what's available, i guess
it's time to start learning...

Not within scribus its self. (Its in the road map)

There is a wiki article to help you do this using pdf tools once you've
created the basic pdf
