[Scribus] Scribus for Scientific Posters?
Fri Nov 30 09:41:31 CET 2007
What's driving me (and them) insane is the scientists using OOo or Power
for creating A0 posters for conferences.
It is true, printouts will be a nightmare (the ps driver will print, one
half of a picture twice)
for formula creation
Your formulas will be formidable, can you create in Dia / inkscape and
insert as pictures
Scribus works well and you can save as a pdf, print and be happy
