This may be the wrong place to ask this, but it is probably where I'll get the best answer. I 
have been using Ventura Publisher in Windows XP for years to create a monthly newsletter.  
Every so often I think about switching to linux (Ubuntu is the distro I have) but run into the 
problem of the newsletter. Is there a tool within the Linux world that will do what Ventura 
does? If so what is it? Scribus seems close, but leaves some things I'm not sure of. Does 
anyone know if Ventura will run under Wine? To see the format of the newsletter, check out 

A question about Scribus -- when importing a picture into a document, does it have to be pre-
sized to exactly the size you want it to occupy in the document or is there a way to adjust 
the size (other than cropping) within Scribus?
