This is perhaps a paradox with Scribus, in that a project designed to 
make PDFs does not have a manual in its own or in PDF format. Beyond 
that, I think one would have to say that the value of printing out and 
carrying around with you the current online manual would be either 
unnecessary or largely unhelpful. The wiki is where much of the 
practical nuts-and-bolts kind of information is, and unfortunately the 
wiki structure does not print well from most, perhaps all browsers, with 
many graphics misplaced or missing altogether.

This page:
may help for some questions if the overall structure of the wiki seems 
like trying to decide which wildebeest to pick out of the large herd of 
wiki articles.

On a practical note, I would say that users of Scribus benefit greatly 
from simply using it, since once you get into the mindset of its 
operation, you can manage quite well, with the episodic orientation from 
the wiki and other sources.
